Chicken-Fried News: Thunder themes



  • Bigstock

What’s better than an Oklahoma City Thunder game? A theme night game!

The Thunder recently announced its theme nights, and tickets are now on sale.

Theme nights include Native American Heritage Night on Nov. 8, Military Appreciation Night on Jan. 20, Black History Appreciation Night on Feb. 27 and Hispanic Heritage Night on March 9.

In addition, the Thunder celebrates its first season game at an Opening Night game Oct. 28 against the San Antonio Spurs and send off 2015 during Arts Council of Oklahoma City’s Opening Night along with the rest of the city on New Year’s Eve — because that’s not confusing at all.

Several NBA mascots will hang out with Thunder mascot Rumble the Bison at Mascot Mania on Feb. 19.

Thunder Alley will be open on Opening Night — the first game, not the New Year’s Eve one — as well as a few game nights in November, March and April. It will open three hours before game time and end when the game begins.

While the Thunder theme night list includes a lot of goodies, we here at Chicken-Fried News would like to add some more: Women’s Appreciation Night for female fans who show team support, Children’s Appreciation Night for kids who bring unbridled youthful excitement to games, Loud City Appreciation Night for the loudest and proudest fan section in the NBA and Fashion Night so we can emulate thread-conscious players like Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
