Welcome to North and South of Royal Brougham Kris “Sonics Guy” Brannon

This is Kris "Sonics Guy" Brannon. He's the man.

Last year my girlfriend and I went to the Taste of Tacoma before we moved to the city. The event features a ton of local eateries–in many cases the kinds of places that aren’t garden variety culturally–that bring their best food to share with the masses. It’s also a place for various vendors, street teams, and activists to peddle there wares. These kinds of events invariably play host to a team of marijuana petition activists.

But last year I left and ran into a large man, about six-foot-five (or so I remember) dressed in all green and gold, with a large afro with a gray streak, pushing I-1158. I wrote about it here. Kris Brannon, or Sonics guy, or Kris “Sonics Guy” Brannon as we’ll call him here, is one of the most visible grassroots supporters of Seattle basketball.

Sonics Guy has a facebook page, and a website that you should like/bookmark.

In the next day or two Kris will post his debut article for us. It’s fairly secretive in its formulation, to the point that I’m personally privy to only minor details. We’re very excited to have Kris here, and we look forward to seeing his opinions as any situations that involve the return of basketball to Seattle materialize.
