Seattle Supersonics Have Children's Book to Explain Never-Ending Depression
Seattle Supersonics fans have a fantastic way to get through the years of not having an NBA franchise, and quite the teaching tool for kids who aren't quite depressed enough about the past departure.
SportsGrid reports on a story that will make you both sad and happy. Consider it the sweet and sour nugget of the news day.
It seems there is a children's book floating around this grand landscape known as the Internet, and it's titled "Mommy, What's a Seattle Supersonic?"
I can almost see a five-year-old asking this of poor mom as the second straight month of rain continues to pour outside. Depression, it seems, can be quite beautiful.
The book by Andrew Gall can be had by going over to iTunes and downloading it for free.
For you Seattle faithful still feeling burned by the team leaving to Oklahoma City, rebranding as the Thunder and subsequently becoming one of the best squads in the NBA, make sure to download this lovely book and feel the pain wash away with every virtual page.
Here are some snippets.
Of course, this children's book isn't the bedtime tale you would tell your kids, but as Dan Fogarty of SportsGrid states, "is instead an ironic coping mechanism for the zombified masses still in shock over the Sonics’ departure."
Hell, who am I to judge?
Bust this baby out on your iPad when junior failed to eat his peas with dinner. The story of the Supersonics leaving and becoming a formidable force in Oklahoma City is so scary, his nightmares will teach him a lesson he will not soon forget.
Finally, something good came out of the Supersonics' demise.
