Last week marked the one year anniversary of the Oklahoma City Thunder leaving Seattle. To mark the occasion, KONG of Seattle thought it would be fun to interview someone from Channel 9 regarding the teams recent “struggles.” Who did Channel 9 choose to represent our city??? The morning traffic reporter.
Here’s a little advice for Channel 9. The next time a mean news lady from Seattle hits you all up for an interview regarding the Oklahoma City Thunder, pick somebody other than Doug Warner. We don’t care if you choose a loopy Dean Blevins on pain pills, just make sure Doug is not in the building.
I’ve watched this video three times and I still don’t know what Doug was trying to say. He mentioned a few random facts, but for the most part, he looked about as calm and collected as a Chesapeake employee getting called to the HR office on a Friday afternoon. Seriously, in the first 30 seconds of the clip, the mean lady mentions the Thunder’s phantom “struggles” about three different times. The only thing Doug could come up with in response was a pre-rehearsed “I’m 1,000 miles away, so your tomatoes won’t hit us!” comment. Hardy-f*cking-har.
Anyway, maybe the next time a Seattle news outlet asks Channel 9 for an interview, they’ll choose a more qualified individual. Maybe someone who not only knows what they are talking about, but someone who can charismatically be an ambassador for our city. Maybe someone who can not only state that the Thunder haven’t struggled, but someone who also isn’t afraid to stand up to some bitchy anchor from Seattle.
And maybe that someone will know a little bit about cumulonimbus clouds and the jet stream. I wonder who that someone would be”¦
