LOL from the article:
There was similar resistance when the Seatte SuperSonics changed their nickname to Thunder when the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, but now the nickname is widely accepted.
Um, no, the nickname is not widely accepted. It sucks. Their logo sucks, their name sucks, and their color scheme sucks.
Bombers, Marshals, Tornados, Outlaws; anything is better than the "Thunder."
