Golden State Warriors: Maybe you lost because Karma cam back to bite you.

Golden State Warriors.  This year's dream basketball team.  Lost.

And just maybe because Karma came back to bite you.

I moved from Nebraska to Northern California in 1994.  Interestingly enough, my first home was in Walnut Creek, where Golden State Warrior's Steph Curry and his family now live.  I moved to nearby (as in 1.5 miles away) Pleasant Hill, when I married my best husband in the world Jim in 1998.  And that's where we live today.  With Jim and wonderful dogs Sid and Lexi.

But this isn't about my best husband.  
Or Walnut Creek.  
Or Pleasant Hill.
Or the Golden State Warrior's Steph Curry.
Or the Golden State Warrior's Draymond Green.

It's about the Golden State Warriors.

And how they badly treat their fan base.

In the mid-1990's (when I was a single woman and living alone) I called the Warrior's Ticket Office to purchase one ... yes, one ... season seat and one season parking pass. Season.  As in not just for a few games, but for the season.   I was a basketball fan, loved the Warriors at that time, even though they sucked.  And by the way, during this time, I do mean the Warriors SUCKED.  As in big time.  As in seasons with .366 to .232 winnings.

I was one of the faithful.  Yet what did the Warriors' ticket office do with my request?

Denied.  Yup, denied. The then sucky team (really sucky, as in beyond sucky)  would not sell me one season ticket, and one season parking pass.  Said the season tickets had to go out in at least pairs.

I never forgave the Warriors for that.  Was it that I was a woman?  Or perhaps white?  Or from Walnut Creek and not Oakland?


I think that perhaps, 20 or so years later, Karma came back to bite them.

Memo to Golden State Warriors:  Don't mess with your fans.

 And don't mess with a woman who simply wanted ONE season ticket and ONE season parking pass.  Which you refused to sell.  Even after 20 or so years, karma may just have come back to bite you in the ass.

Perhaps in the future, your team might find something worthwhile to "LOCK IN" to.

As in true fans, who you otherwise kick to the curb.

Not surprised you lost tonight.  Hope you find your bearings sometime, after so many years.
