The Thunder Rolls in OKC!

By
Real Estate Agent with not active

Now it's official. Oklahoma City's NBA team is nicknamed the Thunder. I like it--for one thing it's unique among team nicknames. The only other team I know of that makes use of "thunder" in a nickname  happens to be connected to a school I attended, the Marshall University Thundering Herd" which I think is  one of the all-time great team names (except when your team stinks--when I was at Marshall we were known as the blundering herd and that was one of the nicer names we were called).

I'm still trying to figure out what a  Thunder mascot looks like but there are lots of great possibilities with this name---the team will play Thunderball in the Thunderdome and the fans will all be wearing their Thunderwear. Don't laugh, I've already seen their apparel referred to as that. Now the only problem with this is if the team isn't any good just substitute "blunder" for "thunder." Remember, I've already had practice doing that.

One thing y'all need to know--Oklahoma City is on a roll. The Thunder is our first major league sports team (OU is in Norman, not OKC--the players don't get paid but the team is definitely major league), the Bricktown entertainment district is going great, Devon Energy has announced plans to build OKC's largest building with construction set to start next year, the downtown area is thriving and new downtown housing is hot. Oklahoma City is also home not only to Devon, but Chesapeake Energy, Sand Ridge Energy, and Sonic Drive-ins are headquartered here as well. Our housing and job market is good--this is truly a great time for this city.

Thanks for letting me brag a bit and "Let the Thunder roll!"

Hello steve...I heard they will also be playing some of their games in Tulsa.  THunder is a good name, I never heard thunder so loud until I moved to oklahoma.  The mascot will probably be a bolt of lighting....or how about a horse named thunder...

Paul....yes I think they will be playing some games in Tulsa. Some people think the mascot may be a buffalo but I don't know. I do know everyone here is really excited about this.

Yes, its a big step for Oklahoma and it will be good for the area as well.  A buffalo sounds interesting.
