the thought of them leaving makes my stomach turn...

Man, I wish that I was in Seattle when they won that title, dang!! Dude, I still read my Sports Illustrated, the one with Gus Williams on the cover driving around Wes Unsled. I think when we won the title back in '79, I really did not celebrate that much like you guys did. All I did was go outside and play basketball pretending to be Downtown Freddie Brown or Dennis Johnson. And I agree, the thought of them leaving the Seattle or Washington area, makes me feel ill.
