With all this chatter on the facebook about Days of Rage, camp 6, burning of tires and boycotts against the Weekly Volcano for spending your hard earned advertising dollars on illegal Clear Channel billboard rentals you'd think that the Mayor's Civility code of conduct was just another pointless symbolic gesture, a plea really, for us all to show our quality... good sportsmanship etc.  Well, ONE MAN has been living by example of the civility code: SAVE OUR SONICS GUY!  I've been studying his dos and don'ts online. Great tips for anyone pushing a cause to win friends and influence people.  

DID YOU KNOW: He hasn't given up on his dream. Right now he is working hard on a citizens initiative petition to get the current Washington State song (a real snoozer) changed to the old Super Sonics Sir Mix-A-Lot rap music song that I believe would be exceedingly progressive. Read about it here in the Weekly Volcano THEN boycott that treacherous weekly newspaper forever!

Nice job, Ryan. I love this dude. He keeps the faith like no one I've ever met. And he commits--all the way to downtown Freddy Brown sideburns.

He was hanging out just feet from us last night at The Red Hot! I felt cool just being near him.

These action figures make living in Tacoma worthwhile. Ok the double rainbows help too.

Farmers Market Season is coming up. Remember if you see this man, let him know you're boycotting Starbucks and ask to sign the petition !

Kris Brannon (the guy's actual name) owns a very entertaining comedy club downtown. It's the Comedy Underground, on 9th & "A" street. Helluva guy.

Thanks Anders! Somewhere I have a Jake Fey campaign mailer I saved because it had a picture of the Sonics Guy (Mr. Brannon).

we should probably build a new tacoma dome and buy a failing franchise of pro basketball bbefore seattle. tacoma sonics sounds okay.

in the meantime, we already have semi-pro. the tacoma tide also own a minor league basketball team. i have never seen them play as their season was about the same time as the soccer team last year.

"Tacoma Tacomics" pro basketball team has a nice ring to it.

Kris is both a hilarious comedian and a genius improver. He's an on-again, off-again member of The Tokens as he has time.

i guess that tide basketball will not happen this year.

The Sonics moving to Oklahoma was one of the highlights of the last 10 years.

I'm hoping for the Mariners, Seahawks and Sounders to follow suit.

i heard that the earth opened up during the last sounders match and murdered the whole team, and their fans. so we should be ok on that part.

for posterity: 

why don't we have any Tacoma Super Heroes?
