The Owner of the Seattle Supersonicas

No longer Celebrates Chanukkha.

Instead, he celebrates making all the children who asked for that Kevin Durant Jersey for the birthdays cry.

Here it is. Either the city gets a new arena deal done, or the team moves off to Oklahoma.

This is a bit disapointing. I'm not the biggest fan of the Sonics (or the NBA for that matter) but it is nice to have a team around. Especially the only Seattle team that has won a championship... oops. I forgot. The Seattle Storm has one. How could I have goofed that one up. To see the city rally behind the likes of Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird... the electricity... Ok, time to be quiet.

I find it difficult, though, to support a new stadium deal. We've already purchased two stadiums in the last 10 years or so. Also, the Key arena is not that old. Also, the 520 is going to need to be replaced soon. Also, the Viaduct needs to be replaced right now, before it kills some people.

So Sea-Town has a lot to worry about, and its NBA team isn't really that big of a deal right now. I hope a deal gets done, but its not looking good.

But perhaps the saddest consequence of the sup's leaving is that there will be no more Sonics songs written by the Presidents of the USA....

And Gary Payton was on... Bounce pass upcourt to Shawn... Five guys in a groove... nothing but net Big Smooth.

I wish I had a video, but this will have to suffice.
