I have a bunch of friends who are sports fans but care nothing for the Sonics. In fact, one may say that they wouldn’t even notice if (and when) the Sonics left. But I? I would notice because there would be no professional basketball games to watch in Seattle. There would be no more Boom Squad or $7 beers or that guy who always plays the sax outside the Key Arena. Wanna know how I know? This is how.
So yeah, I could drive my ass 3 hours south to see the Blazers play…and don’t get me wrong, I like the Blazers but HELL NO. If the Sonics are leaving then Seattle definitely needs another professional basketball team located here. Who’s with me? The only thing that’s not a big deal about the Sonics leaving is Squatch leaving with them.
