How to Squander Your Fans

Forgive me if I come off as angry, but, quite frankly, I'm pissed.

Thunder Rumblings, no longer sponsored by John Holt Chevrolet, has informed everybody that anybody with a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday appointment for tickets is SOL. Quite Frankly, this makes me incredibly angry.

I signed up for my tickets the DAY AFTER signups were taken. But, to "be fair", the team decided to randomly scramble the people who signed up from the beginning and some date like a month later. So, basically, some dude who didn't even know that the NBA wasn't coming to Oklahoma City until a month later might be enjoying his season tickets right now.

So basically, when I go to get my tickets on FRIDAY, I'm going to be stuck with a crappy 6 game plan somewhere at the top of section 301. Great. Thanks a lot, Thunder.

Of course, there's absolutely NOTHING I can do about this, and I am VERY spoiled. But I don't even know if my heart is going to be in this the rest of this season. I'm tired of stinky ownership. But of course, this is a fact of life, and I just have to deal with the fact that the NBA is a business.

My couch is a much better seat, anyway.

And when we have about 11 wins riding into the All-Star break, I can get my tickets for free.
