OKC 101

January 23rd, 2011

I attended my first-ever NBA basketball game. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I didn’t expect the Oklahoma City Thunder to take down the New York Knickerbockers (on the subject of knickers, it seemed that Ronny Turiaf, #14 for the Knicks, got his knickers in a twist by the end, but then again, he had just been served).

I got a few pictures, but the thunderbum shot wins the prize:

But the most amazing part was that this all happened in Oklahoma City. I grew up in OKC and sarcastically referred to it as Action City, but OKC is slowly growing into its own. With the MAPS endeavor, revitalization of Bricktown and its very-own NBA team, it’s become a legitimate place to live and do business. I feel that if OKC has a progressive (imagination-wise not necessarily politically) and budget-conscious mayor, she or he could make OKC into Action City one day. So, congratulations OKC and welcome to the game – now we’ll just have to do something about those backward politics… but that’s another story.

In conclusion, NY 98, OKC 101 – hey, it’s a definite start. And that final shot, glad I was there to witness it.
