Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

no that is an issue of pronunciation, this is an issue of spelling and grammar... two completely different issues that have nothing at all in common. lame lame lame comparison dude.

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.
Well I'll be darned, looks like The Thunder might have a theme song.

"To unveil the logo, six children joined players Desmond Mason and Damien Wilkins to pull down a curtain as the AC/DC song “Thunderstruck” blared over the loudspeaker. What was revealed was a large blue banner with the logo in the middle, and splashes of yellow at the top and reddish-orange at the bottom."

Yet another idea stolen from Seattle. You take a 42 year old franchise, relocate it, make the logo generic, name the team after another team's mascot, and steal their theme song from JJ Putz.

Generic logo? I think not. What team has a mascot named Thunder? Steal a theme song? First, just because they made a lot of people deaf with that crapola "song," that does not make it the theme. Plus, no one "stole" anything. What makes you think they did?

Generic logo, very much so. This team is called the Oklahoma City Warriors' Mascot. The idea for Thunderstruck as a theme song is very familiar in Seattle. Safeco would play that whenever JJ Putz came in. And I think you just insulted AC/DC's Thunderstruck, which would make your post a failure and a laughing stock.

No, wait. We're still laughing at the Warriors' Mascot logo. You're off the hook.

Re: OKC might not be called Thunder

So can the tag line for the Oklahoma City Thunder officially be "Ugliest Logo Ever"?

Believe me. There have been worse. Just look at the one the Thunder left in Seattle.

They also used the GSW and Denver colors. Not only is this the ugliest logo of any expansion team in the past decade, it's also derivative.

Oh no, but being one of the largest markets and richest cities in the United States will get us a team sooner or later. On the other hand, a bad team, a bad coach, and a ugly-as-**** logo will get you about 20 wins and whole lotta frustration.

Now whaddya gonna say? "At least we have a team," in a girly voice, "at least we get to watch them play." Let me tell you something. Watching the Thunder will be like spotting a real good lookin stripper from a distance. Then when you actually get the lapdance, you realize she only looks good from the distance, in the dark. But ****, the ***** is already on you. You gotta pay her. And now you're regretting you picked this ho instead of the other Asian one, and now you're wishing you didn't buy those season tickets and you're trying to hawk em off to all your buddies for a quarter of the price. They don't want them either.

At least "we" have a team, and "we" care about it. That's more than I can say about Washington state.
