First of all, my condolences to all the Sonics die-hards out there.. Here's my post a while back on the Supes imminent departure... and ETE has full coverage here...
I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this: Paul Allen is secretly smiling somewhere. Why?
1. The potential fan base of the Portland Blazers just massively increased.
2. The money people might have spent on the Sonics? Perhaps they'll spend that dough on the Seahawks and/or Seattle Sounders FC.
3. And oh yeah, he's probably smiling anyway because he's an effing Billionaire.
The Seahawks are the last, best hope for sporting joy in my home state for the near future... Bring it home, guys.
