As we reported on Friday, Starbucks CEO Howard "The Coward" Schultz's poorly attended book signing at Costco in Issaquah turned shameful when he had anyone wearing Seattle SuperSonics gear thrown out of the store so they couldn't say mean things to him. SonicsGate film producer Adam Brown was there, and on Dave "Softy" Mahler's radio show on KJR on Monday, Brown promised Schultz that he'll be in for more of the same at any other local public events he slithers into.
Brown, who said he'd planned only to give a copy of his film SonicsGate to Schultz at Costco on Friday and to ask him to finally say something about his decision to sell the team to Oklahoma, also said that there is one thing Schultz could say to make things better.
"I'll tell you one thing that he would say that would make it all better, Softy," Brown says. "He could say I'm building Starbucks Arena in Bellevue or the city of Seattle and I'm gonna bring back an NBA team. That's the only way I would ever set foot in a Starbucks, Seattle's Best Coffee, or any other Schultz-owned business again."
Of course, that's like preaching to the choir for Softy.
"I guess [Schultz is] OK with living with the fact that he's the most hated man in the city of Seattle," said the radio host. "[He's OK with] living with the fact that he's the biggest sports villain this city has ever seen."
As for what to expect in the future. Brown offered this taste:
"Schultz is just a coward," he said. "What's he going to do, just never set foot publicly in Seattle again? Because every time he does, Sonics fans are going to come."
