It's been one of the biggest talking points in Oklahoma sports and events for the better part of a year, will vaccinations be required for (this)? Officials with the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team say yes.

Starting October 4th, if you're a fan planning on attending a home game at Bricktowns Paycom Arena to see the OKC Thunder play basketball, you will need to prove you're 100% vaccinated or provide a legitimate Covid-19 negative test result within the previous three days.

Is it a bummer? Sure... but at least those that choose to not accept the politically turmoiled vaccine will still have the opportunity to attend a home game and make noise up in Loud City. All you'll have to do is subject yourself to a Covid-19 test, which is far worse that just getting the vaccine.

Honestly, between the poke and the q-tip touching your brain, who wouldn't opt for the shot at this point? Have you had a test yet? It's the most awkward experience I think I've ever had. Was it painful? No. Was it too much to bare? No. But it was absolutely weird enough I hope I never have to experience it again. It was enough to convince me to make social distancing my new full-time thing. Can't lie, enjoying my space these days.

We all know how this is going to spread. First it started with public buildings owned by the city, then it became a handful of feigning events wanting to show how much they "care"... As unpopular a move as this will prove to be in a state with a mostly complacent public opinion of the "just a bad cold" virus, more and more are sure to follow. It's only a matter of time before even restaurants make it a prerequisite to enjoy a hit-or-miss meal in house.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
