April 19, 2011: Oklahoma City

As the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Denver Nuggets prepare for their Game 2 match-up tomorrow night at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City, let's not forget that today is a very somber day for the people of OKC and the entire country. Today is the 16th anniversary of the horrific bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building where 168 people lost their lives on April 19, 1995. To all those who lost loved ones and to an entire city who's spirit was ripped apart on that dreadful day, our thoughts and prayers are still with you.

Today, it's great to see the city focused on something good (and not on the events of that dreadful day 16 years ago) as the No. 4 Thunder have a 1-0 lead on the No. 5 Nuggets and the OKC fans have reasons to be hopeful as their team is a legitimate championship contender.

GOOD LUCK to the Thunder the rest of the way.
