So now it looks like Oklahoma City may be furthering its quest to be the most hated team in the league by having a positively awful team name, "Thunder," that my wife so poignantly deemed as "something a guy would call his penis."
To help them then, I've come up with another team name for them that I think will fit the culture of OK and perhaps start a new trend in diversity.
I recommend the name: The Oklahoma City White People.
I figured since it's so popular to name teams after Native Americans, even when they use flagrant slurs like "Redskins," why not extend the fun to white people?
You know, they could have a guy in khaki shorts, loafers, and a pastel polo shirt as their mascot, and who wouldn't pay to see Chris Wilcox in a White People jersey?
I don't have Clay Bennett's e-mail but if any of you come across it, let me know. I'd love to run this idea by him. And, of course, if any one else has a good idea, I'd love to hear it. We can send one long e-mail to Clay.
