Like basically everyone else on the planet, I especially enjoy Seinfeld. I’m the guy that plans my day around its daily airing on TBS, even though I have all nine seasons on DVD and have seen every episode close to 400 times. I love the show. I love the characters, I love the storylines, I love the hidden humor and inside jokes within each episode.
But one thing has always bothered me a little: I only got to appreciate one season “live”. I was too young to be a fan when the show was in its prime and rolling out new episodes every week. I only really remember Season 9, and really, mostly just the last half of it. I actually kind of remember my dad telling me to watch the finale because it was supposed to be a big deal. I only now appreciate the show fully, over 10 years after it ended.
Granted, it was out of my hands, but I wish I could have absorbed those great seasons like a real fan.To have watched the brilliance of Season 6 and known to appreciate it right then and there would have been so much better than catching a re-run 15 years later.
So, how does this relate to the Oklahoma City Thunder? Well, the point I’m trying to make is that I think this is the time to appreciate the Thunder. This is the time to soak it all up. You don’t want to be me, 10 years from now looking back and wishing you had absorbed and understood everything you were witnessing with this young team. It won’t be like regretting you decided to have a bowl of cereal with that milk that expired two days ago, but you’ll wish you would have valued it a little more. You will. Keep Reading…
