Oklahoma City Still Waiting For NBA Team To Arrive

OKLAHOMA CITYŚMore than six months after the approval of the Seattle SuperSonics' relocation to Oklahoma City, the metropolitan region's 1.3 million residents continue to eagerly await the arrival of the Thunder, their promised NBA team.


"We realize basketball season started back in October, but we're not worried. We have no problem waiting a little longer for our first real professional basketball team to arrive," Mayor Mick Cornett said during an interview. "I called Commissioner Stern a few months ago, but I haven't heard anything back yet. I assume the Thunder will be here any day now."

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.http://www.theonion.com/content/themes/onion/assets/terminator.gif

That is kind of a day long and a dollar short since the Thunder have won 6 of their last 11 games including a buzzer beater last night at Golden State...

I didn't write the f**king thing. I'm simply pointing out that it is there.
