If It Wasn’t Official Before, It Is Now

posted by on August 6 at 16:37 PM

According to some bloggers in Oklahoma, a technical slip-up on the NBA’s team schedule homepage has revealed that the Team Formerly Known as The Supersonics has officially been rechristened as the Oklahoma Thunder.


It was rumored before, now it appears to be official.

And now, some real thunder!

Let's hope the Thunder precedes the lightning strike that burns down their new sports facility in Oklahoma.

Are they trying to hatch that thing?

If yer gonna say "officially" you probably oughta get the name right: Oklahoma _City_ Thunder. With a City in the middle.

At least according to that graphic you posted.

They're all wagging their legs around like they just realized that the mussels were probably bad and maybe a basketball might help.

I guess that's better than the Oklahoma City Bombers.

Um, isn't the 2007-08 season over by now?

Why when I go to Oklahoma Shitty's NBA site, photos of guys in SuperSonic jerseys show up? Along with last year's results and a blog called "Sonics Beat"? I thought Greg Nickels owned the Sonics colors and records.

Oh, and the OK Shitty Butt Thunder will be playing in Portland on February 11 and April 13.

I call dibs on being first to saddle them with the nickname of Oklahoma City Dusters, short (and plural) for Oklahoma City Dust Bowl.

Speaking of technical glitches, does anyone know whether the Air America Radio website's been hacked?

Their page on is super informative.

agreed with 8.

i was really hoping for OKC Bombers.

that's what they'll always be referred to as by me.

Cakefart really has changed everything, hasn't it...

I think @3 would make a great band name.

Cake farting is now everywhere. I wonder if Dan Savage is going to address this issue on savagelove. I have seen the Zoe Zane video he had posted here ~3 weeks ago. Nowadays it's all over radio stations and community magazines.
