Enjoy the Ride

I sure have enjoyed attending some of the NBA games in Oklahoma City this season. It is remarkable how much of a change in Oklahoma City has taken place since the team's arrival and rise. Two nights ago the Celtics were in town and last night the Lakers were here. Still hard to believe.

A few thoughts:

  1. This is a great outlet to stand and cheer and scream. I believe that has medicinal effects.
  2. It is a lot more fun to watch when one is confident in the team. I remember when the Hornets came to town for two years. We enjoyed going to the games and watching, but we/they mostly lost. Now we mostly win.
  3. When the Hornets were here and a team like the Lakers or Celtics came to town, there were nearly as many people dressed in Purple/Yellow or Green as those rooting for the Hornets.  While there are still some dressed that way, the numbers are much less.  People cheer for the Thunder here.
  4. Kudos to the team members who seem to have a lot of class and seem to have a lot of fun together.
  5. Kudos to the team ownership for smart personnel moves to bring together these guys. This seems to be a class organization.
Enjoy the ride.
