Haunted Skirvin Hotel fails to scare Miami Heat?

Well that’s a headline I thought I would never write!
First of all I want to let everyone know that I am not a big sports fan.  I never have been one either.  I’m not one to jump on the bandwagon because a team is doing very well in a season. But I do have respect for the Thunder. I did come across a headline on my phone where I get “paranormal news” and a very small blurb was posted in a Miami based newspaper. The Sun Sentential decided to take a poke that kind of got me a bit riled up. No, I am not running out to purchase an official Thunder-Up t-shirt but the short article did make me raise an eyebrow and be on the defensive.
Here is the original article
I’m not normally concerned with sports rivalry but I am getting rather annoyed with the national media making statements as to which they are so surprised that Oklahoma City is actually a real city! Why on earth would anyone in this day and age really assume we are sporting around covered wagons and living by lakes and rivers in tee-pee’s?  Oklahoma City may not be the most progressive city around but really we are not waking up each day to hunt for our food!

Miami Heat player Udonis Haslem told media “I’m a pretty good guy, man. I respect everybody’s space,”  “If that’s the ghost’s room and they come pop up on me like that and he says it’s his spot, he can have it. There’s plenty other rooms.”

Folks who have stayed at the Skirvin Hilton — you can check in any time you like but you can never leave — report all sorts of supernatural incidents. Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass insists on a nightlight when he stays there and Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson said his bathroom door slammed in the middle of the night.Source Washington Post
It’s nice to see the competition not be intimidated by a series of ghostly tales attached to the hotel like many others in the past.
