I'm one of those people who save stuff. On big news days I save the newspapers and store ‘em in boxes. 9/11. The Iraq war. The OKC bombing. I could pull out the papers now stored away in my closet.
That's why I waited with anticipation to see the cover of today's Oklahoman. The NBA's arrival in OKC was sure to be printed on the front page with big bold letters. And I was right. "WE MADE IT" screams across the cover of today's edition of the Oklahoman.
I looked online for copies of the Seattle papers.
"A SAD DAY" on one.
"HOOPLESS" on another.
I just have one complaint. On this historic day for Oklahoma, I fear historians and our children's children will one day pull up the July 03, 2008 papers, scan the front page and realize what a big day this was for us. And at the very bottom, they'll also realize two of our residents had an unusual & disgusting love for dogs. Sigh.
Why couldn't the dog story be buried on page 2A? or the METRO section? Or.. in the classifieds? Please. Honestly, I don't care where you put it, just not on the front page. Not today.
P.S. - Isn't that a Tulsa story, anyway?
