For the folks who use Yelp, it's not surprising that some reviews aren't exactly glowing of certain establishments. However, this review about a fan trying to get a haircut cuts right to the core of Seattle's love-hate (mostly hate) relationship with that team in Oklahoma currently in the NBA Finals.

Let's read the harrowing tale of a man named Rich who attempted to get a haircut at The Roosevelt Barbershop in Seattle and according to this Yelp review, he shouldn't have mentioned anything about OKC Thunder:
I'm sitting there reading an old ESPN magazine when John starts ranting about how 63 percent of people polled in Seattle are supporters of the NBA Thunder team and the rest are not, something to this extent.  He goes on to call anybody in Seattle who supports this team complete idiots and wonders where they are; he's never met them etc.  
I mention to him casually, as in, casual barbershop sport talk manner, that I am Thunder fan and have been a fan of Kevin Durant since he played in Seattle.  I go on to ask him how the Thunder owner stealing the Super Sonics from us relates to rooting for Kevin Durant and other former Sonics players.  John says, "There's the door."  And gives me a rude, I just ate a piece of sh*t for breakfast look. 
I mention that he's not the person appointed to cut my hair and he's taking this thing super seriously. He says, "yes I am taking this super seriously."  At this point, a solid "WTF" is going through my head.  There's at least 8 people in the shop and it's dead quiet, my barber obviously isn't backing me up even though this asshole is about to cost him business of a loyal customer of almost 2 years so I go up to John, look him in his face and say, "Alright then."  I go to Niko, " alright then Niko"..."Alright then, Rich".  And then I'm out, never to return
