I miss the Sonics, man.
When I first moved to this city, it was the Seattle Supersonics that won my heart over.
Before that I never really cared about sports, or basketball, but the squad of guys they had were so lovable I became a huge fan. We never won a championship, but they can never take the memories I have of that team. Then they changed the name to the Sonics, and eventually they moved the team out of the city altogether. I guess Seattle WA isn’t really known as a great sports 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 problem I have is with the cannabis, because smoking dope on school grounds in Seattle is not cool. 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 cool when it comes to marijuana, but there are some hard limits around school campuses. I support and respect these laws, of course, but watching basketball is not as much fun without some cannabis being involved. Watching hoops on TV doesn’t have the same thrill, but without my Seattle Sonics that thrill is gone, anyway. Thankfully the cannabis dispensaries in Seattle are numerous, and stocked with the words best weed, so that helps to ease my pain.
