A puckish sense of humor

The next step for an NBA-less Seattle, says Costa:

Instead of embarking on a mad dash for another shot at big-league hoops, the Emerald City should take its parting gift, and promptly graft it onto the next National Hockey League team that wants to move into KeyArena.

Why not? Hockey is a missing link for the Pacific Northwest’s sports scene (the cross-border Vancouver Canucks notwithstanding). Reviving the Seattle SuperSonics as an NHL team would nicely fill the void. That green-and-gold color scheme would look great fitted with skates and hockey sticks. The Sonics logo would have to be reworked a little, but it can’t be too hard to airbrush that basketball into a puck.

Now I’m worried. This is starting to sound almost logical.

    Remember the days when we Oklahoma Citizens were all stoked about the possibility of an NHL team? It all seems so cute and far away now.

    That green-and-gold color scheme DOES look good fitted with skates and hockey sticks. They’re called the Dallas Stars!!! :)

    You should be worried, if my crackpot schemes start sounding logical. But we are talking about Seattle — I think they’ll cotton to it.

    Yeah, the Stars have the green-and-gold, but the Sonics have brighter shades of both. It’d work.
