If you listen closely, you can hear the distinct sounds of a cowbell during Saturday night's NBA playoff game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets. Right behind the Thunder bench, in plain view of the cameras, sits a group of Seattle Sonics fans, including a few members of the Sonicsgate crew. And as a show of support for the Sacramento Kings, and the relocation saga the fans there are going through, Sonicsgate brought along a cowbell.
But not just any cowbell: A Sonicsgate-themed cowbell. Check out the picture, tweeted by Sonicsgate.
Also note the awesome signs, including the always fun "Seattle Drafted Durant." Wearing the old-school Sonics gear and repping Seattle, Sonicsgate is in Denver to keep the team alive, and in the minds of those watching at home. Judging by the seats they acquired and the visibility they have on the national broadcast, I'd say it's working.
But, of course, we could always use more cowbell.
