I miss the Sonics so bad.
When I first moved to this city, it was the Seattle Supersonics that won my heart over… Before that I never actually cared about sports, or basketball, but the squad of guys they had were so great I became a huge fan.
We never won a big game, but they can never take the memories I have of that team. Then they changed the name to the Sonics, and eventually they switched the team out of the city altogether. I know Seattle WA isn’t actually known as a good basketball city, but man do I miss going to the arena to see some hoops. Fortunately there are a lot of college teams around here I can go see, because Seattle does have a lot of schools. The biggest concern I have is with cannabis, because smoking dope on school grounds in Seattle is not okay. In the parking lot of the major sports arenas there is always a lot of tailgating, and in Seattle tailgating means cannabis will be present. For such a big city, Seattle is remarkably neat when it comes to marijuana, but there are some difficult limits around school campuses. I support and respect these laws, of course, but enjoying hoops is not as much fun without some cannabis being involved. Watching basketball on cable doesn’t have the same thrill, but without our Seattle Sonics that thrill is gone, anyway. Thankfully the cannabis dispensaries in Seattle are numerous, and stocked with the words best cannabis, so that helps to ease our pain.
