The Sonics are moving to Oklahoma?!?

OK, well the ‘Sonics’ aren’t moving, since the team name and colors are staying in Seattle, but holy crap Oklahoma has a pro sports franchise?

Part of me says WTF and the rest of me says pretty cool!

Coming from San Antonio, which has only one pro sports team, I can relate with Oklahoma. Partly because I’ve lived there (in Lawton), but also because I can understand how city/state pride can really be affected by having a good pro team around. Heck, they don’t even have to be pro, there’s tons of amateur and semi-pro teams all over the States, and plenty of the same in the UK (mostly football/soccer but you get the idea) – a decent local team doing well will definitely lift the spirits of everyone around.

Anyway – yay Oklahoma!

I just hope they don’t choose some horrible team name like the Spartans (ripping off the movie ‘300’) or something awful like the Redskins (since Oklahoma used to be Indian Territory).

  1. Hmm, thanks. That doesn’t sound like a terrible name, but I have to wonder where the name came from. Maybe from ‘cattle barons’ or something? Whatever, it’s nice that the OK will get some pro-sports love finally.
