    Now I understand why Steve Blake was getting death threads... he was obviously seen wearing one of these shirts.

    But it sounds like such a sincere thank you.....

    Besides, if I was in OKC or an OKC fan, I would probably wear it. Obviously not in Seattle though unless I was accompanied by Phoenix Jones.

    Looks like it comes pre-stained with authentic Oklahoma B.O.

    I don't understand the hate towards the city of OKC. It's actually a lot like Portland in it's size

    That logo design just wouldn't work for OKC -- they only have one high-rise in that city.

    It's really not.

    The city is half the size and the urban density is about where Portland was in the late 60'/ early 70's.

    My Impression is that Portland is a more charming city, although I could be wrong since I've been to neither place.

    If I was going to start a business it would probably be elsewhere, but Portland and Seattle seem beautiful.

    It's not either. It's a pretty clean city. Portland was 1st, but OKC was 15th. It's a nice city....Flat as hell, yes, but not ugly

    The crowd in OKC freaks me out

    It's like they're all robots. They just stand there, clap their hands, and smile after anything goes well. And it's everyone.

    Looks so odd.

    That's a great shirt, ridiculous that they had to stop making it because some idiots sent death threats.

    I'm going to Seattle this weekend to visit my brother and his family. How do I get one of these shirts ASAP? We're going to Seattle Center on Sunday.

    Tell that to the throngs of posters lined up in The HCP's bedroom during road trips
