I don't know what's worse, having the Sonics leave Seattle, or having the Sonics stay and going to a game at this newly designed Emerald City Center
. This is far beyond worthy of an abbreviation, so WHAT THE FUCK! This has a retractable roof! Are you serious? Basketball is a winter sport. It rains about 1 out of 3 days in Seattle during the winter. Why would we have a retractable roof on a basketball/hockey arena? Literally the stupidest idea I've ever seen.
The idea is being pitched by former Sonics player Fred Brown of the 1979 NBA Championship team, and David Bean
, Senior Director of Public Relations at WONGDOODY. Dude, guys, WTF?
My favorite part is the quote in the Seattle P.I.
- "...a retractable-roof arena that could house basketball and hockey franchises in the middle of an Epcot-like exposition center." Epcot-like? OOOOOHH, Fun Forest part II!
And, it will only cost $1 billion. Only $1 billion!
