OKC Mayor ‘Pardons’ Fans For Leaving Thunder Game Early
OKLAHOMA CITY - Some Thunder fans decided that it was time leave after the team was down 25 points in the 3rd quarter during Game 5 Wednesday night.
Mayor David Holt, who is big Thunder fan, was on a rollercoaster of emotions himself!
He also called out fans who were leaving the game and tweeted they would be pardoned if they left a note on his desk at City Hall saying, “I will never give up again.”
Well, fans on Twitter obliged:
But one fan, who stayed the entire game, tweeted at Holt saying, “What do I get for staying is the real question?”
Holt answered, “Memories for a lifetime.”
After receiving several tweets, Mayor Holt got a little help from former Thunder player Enes Kanter to update fans on the pardons.
Last night, I offered pardons to Thunder fans who left last night's game in the third quarter, if they were properly apologetic and promised never to give up on our @okcthunder again.
