Rumor has it there are a few names floating about for the franchise that is moving from Seattle to Choklahoma City.
Nothing against Gay people, but names Barons, Bison, Energy, Marshalls, Thunder, and ESPECIALLY WIND have to be the gayest set of names they could have come up with.
Barons: There ain't no Barons of ANYTHING in Oklahoma, gay.
Bison: Probably haven't been bison in OK since the White Man came in with guns, not too mention that that is the mascot for Howard University, which makes it really gay.
Energy: That's so WNBA I don't know what to say, the Energy industry is much more in Houston than in OK City, totally gay.
Marshalls: oh please, just another rip off from Texas' history, cowboys are getting gayer by the day, gay.
Thunder, that's just ridiculous, if you are going to name something after weather, make it something like Tornadoes or something, Thunder sounds like a nickname of a bear in Atlanta (not that I would know anything about that), gay.
And now Wind:
Wind. WIND! What is this, Captain Planet? Where did all these corny intangible object names come from. Why not just call yourselves the Flowergirls or Debutantes? That is just plain stupid and ultra-fem-WNBA. And don't tell me about some durn Wind Farms either, shouts out to T. Boone Pickens.
Oklahoma City needs to be recognized for what they are, a franchise stealer. You almost got New Orleans, and now you somehow got Seattle. What about the OK City Thugs. Or the OK City Swindlers, Carpetbaggers, or something really kickass, the OK City Five Fingers. That would actually sell some f8cking T-shirts baby.
With these corny choices, I would say OK City would be better off nixing the whole nickname idea altogether doing it like the soccer clubs, just call the team "BC Oklahoma City". Basketball Club of Oklahoma City. Or the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Basketball Club, Oklahoma City MBC. The nickname for the club will eventually evolve (maybe from a player or owner or the city), but would never be official. Kind of adds some allure to the whole thing. Or rip of San Fran and take out the whole Oklahoma part, and call it "The City". Come on OK City.
If you are going to with your energy industry, do a Jesse Jackson grab something with some nuts. You've got some petroleum up there, what about the OK City Oilmen, or OK City Black Gold? How about the OK City Roughnecks (although that's getting a little gay again). But I say go with something with some sexual connatations that still deals with petroleum, such as: OK City Drillers, Pipelayers, Penetrators, Plungers, Nightmen, Hands, or my favorite, the OK City Separators (process engineers in the house). The fans would love it.
