The Onion covers the Thunder

It was long overdue.

Hat tip to Slandrew, the world's #1 Thunder fan. On second thought it's probably this guy:

I'm okay with anyone who loves themselves some Thunder.

Yeah, no other blogs ever link to other pertinent material with just a minimum of commentary. That just isn't done.

Rock over London, Rock on Chicago. Wheaties, breakfast of champions.

Ah, I see you've finally posted my picture.

FYI Mitten: I'm 17. Yes, I still live with my mom, but I'm going to college in the Fall. It's called being young.

And that's not a Mullet by any standard. It's long hair. Mullets are short hair on the head, and long hair just in the back. That's long hair all-around. Walter Herrmann, Anderson Varejao, you've got nothing on me!

Anyway, you can hate on me if you wish,but I've followed the NBA all of their life wishing that Oklahoma City had a team, and now that they do, excuse me if I'm trying to enjoy it.

And yes, people in Seattle still do have my deepest condolences. I didn't ask for the Supersonics to come to Oklahoma. I would much, much rather have an expansion franchise that started Dan Dickau and Michael Olowakandi go 0-82 representing Oklahoma City than have taken the Supersonics away from Seattle. But it wasn't my choice, and the chances of Oklahoma City getting a non-stolen team are roughly 0%.

So, I'm going to enjoy it this year, the final year I live in this great city. After that, I'm going to keep cheering for my original team, the Golden State Warriors.

Oh, and Lastly, this blog is hilarious. Keep up the good work.

We're proud to have you, even if it's just this year

"The mayor also noted that there is a team in town, or more precisely a basketball-themed comedy group, performing shows a few nights a week at the Ford Center, though their gimmick of the home team always losing becomes predictable after a while"

- You know...this might actually explain why the OKC "super fans" don't watch road games...they don't get that the team isn't just performing shows a few nights a week.

Oh, Okies. So fat. Check out #8 on the first list, and the stellar #2 on the second list.

I am pissed about our team being stolen, but you shouldn't make fun of Native Americans in OK. They were abused and marched there against their will, many barefoot for 500+ miles when Andrew Jackson tore up all previous treaties and "relocated" them. OKC deserves an expansion team, not ours!

MONTANA said...

Sorry about my rant this morning.
Didn't mean to kill the thread.

This thread was dead and stinking long before you came along, Montana.

love the wesley willis reference. i think "i whooped batman's ass" is some of his finest work

Montana said...

This site is funny, don't let a few okies stop it. I guess i went overboard on my Native American rant,
but when KD and anyone else who's any good bolts. Any promise of a good young team goes too. Our message boards were slammed by Okies while they "stole" our team, a little payback is OK.

Okie said...

I see how it is, the Thunder win a few and -- poof goes the big bitch from Seattle.

I knew you were a pussy-ass bitch anyways. You always were from the gay-ass northwest.

It's damn gratifying to know I was right all along though.

Go drink a latte and fuck some dude up the ass bitch.

Good ridance.

Mamma Cass said...

This blog was good, and then?

You suck bitch.

Some good news, Aubrey McClendon is selling his wine collection: http://blogs.wsj.com/wealth/2009/02/03/is-aubrey-mcclendon-selling-off-his-prized-wine/

R.I.P. BiLB. It was a good ride while it lasted.

PS - Eat a d*ck, Bennett.

Bellevue Brat Pack, where did you go?

@ the last Anonymous guy:

What? Is the blog dead? Say it ain't true...

Claymate -- Congratulations on turning this thing around. The Okies are positively giddy with the team's recent success.

You were right when you told me three years ago that the beauty of this market is that they're so easily satisfied. Sure, they may not fill the seats, buy much merchandise, or even realize the team has road games. But as long as the taxpayers are willing to subsidize you, we don't care where the money comes from, right?

Success really is realtive, and anything better than dead last is considered over-achievement in OKC. It's the perfect town for the NBA!

I'm thinking of trying your model elsewhere. Do you know of any other self-loathing markets? Obviously, any kind of measurable basketball IQ in the market isn't necessary (in fact, it would probably only complicate things -- we should probably stick with what we know works).

Keep up the good work, and say hi to Aubrey and Tom for me.

Sincerely,

The David

P.S. Seaking of Aubrey, I understand he's selling some wine. Ask him if he has any Mad Dog, preferably Spiked Melon. I'm meeting with Isaiah Thomas later, and I want to have something that will settle him down.

Montana said...

The sites not dead, just that when the talent flees, the team is dead!

Frank Chopp said...

This site is stone cold dead and stinkier than your wifes cunt, Montana....

Montana said...

I feel for you, it's still not changing the fact that the team will be gone in a few years.

Frank Chopp said...

Keep telling yourself that, loser...

Your team is dead and gone and they're never coming back.

We all got what we deserve.

Montana said...

I let it go for about a week and then after i stopped laughing and wiped away the tears there was still the reality that this team is going to move or fold. Hell; i wouldn't be surprised to see the whole league fold.
Calling me a loser, classic okie.
I'm a Persian gulf war vet, disabled too. Funny how i fought for you to have the right to call me a loser.
Well you're welcome.
