I got to thinking where this might have come from... Might be this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_City_Blue_Devils

Obviously they can't go with Blue Devils, so did they just shorten it to Blue?

Oklahoma City's jazz root are long gone, the Deep Deuce district adjacent to Bricktown has long since deteriorated before being recycled and gentrified... so I don't know if this is an attempt to renew the jazz roots or if their just going off the deep end.

Edit: No, I didn't see this post before writing this... I've been at the Red Bull Air Races at TMS all weekend and just getting caught up...

I could understand naming the team after a color if the Thunder had been around for decades and had a really unique color like FSU's garnet, but OKC's been around for less then a decade and use a color (light blue) that's used by three other teams, so it doesn't work at all. OKC Blue: We're a basketball team, not the cops!
