Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

I like Barons a lot more than any of the other names. It just sounds good. Not really worried about teams in other places having the same names; hell, there's multiple pro sports teams called the Giants and Kings, and no one seems to care.

Thunder is terrible. Sounds like a netball team.

What is "netball?" Also. Before you cast judgement on a name like Thunder, think of the marketing potential. It's not like those hick names that the majority of the country will make "Okie" jokes out of.

Those actually look pretty nice. I think the Barons would be the best name for the team, because Thunder does sound like a WNBA team name.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

Since they intend on going with an electric related theme, why not go with an electrical equipment based name?

The Oklahoma City Diodes
The Oklahoma City Reclosers
The Oklahoma City Capacitors
The Oklahoma City Transformers
The Oklahoma City Generators
The Oklahoma City Batteries
The Oklahoma City Resistors
The Oklahoma City Substations

or my personal favorite

The Oklahoma City Ground Loop Isolators

Personally, I hate plural names because they are too common. Why not the Oklahoma City Isotope?

most people that live in oklahoma or the great plains in general are happy with the rural element of their homeland, and think that people who make hick jokes are sad sacks who don't know what the **** they are talking about. then there are the people who live in fourth rate cities like OKC or Tulsa or Omaha and make hick jokes because they think they are cosmopolitan or some ****. but they just hate themselves. **** them. their opinion should be ignored.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

J-Mac (my wife aka Busty Rhymes) and I are liking the Mustangs and the Cyclones.

However, if they go with the Thunder, they absolutely need to use "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC as their theme song. Think about it. Its time to introduce the hometeam, the Oklahoma City Thunder. The arena goes dark, the sounds of thunder reverberate throughout the arena, psuedo lighting flashes, and Angus starts out on his guitar in Thunderstruck. There would be no better intro song top to get the fans into the game. Can you imagine 20,000 fans shouting "THUNDER!"? This song is hard rockin' and infectious. It would strike fear into the hearts of the opposing team. If you are not familar with this song, you need to give it a listen.
