ABC Wednesday -- H is for Haunted Historical Hilton Hotel

Behold, the Hilton Skirvin Hotel, downtown Oklahoma City.

Earlier this year, when the New York Knicks played the OKC Thunder here in Oklahoma City. The Knicks lost the game, and some of the players claimed that it was because they couldn't sleep as their hotel (the Skirvin) was haunted. More on the story can be found here.

Really? But I do believe in haunted places.

H for Hairdo

It may be haunted but it's also very elegant!

And the Knicks, I'm afraid, are not a very good team. Any excuse for their lousy play...

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you! - Ramblin' with Roger

I don't know if it is really haunted or not. I do know that I grew up in this town, and I never heard of the Skirvin being haunted until the Knicks lost that game and blamed it on the ghosts.

Now there are people saying "oh yeah, it's always been haunted".

I guess the ghosts are Thunder fans. Such an unfair advantage.... :-)

It's a beautiful hotel. And I like the excuse. I'm going to add it to my list of excuses to use when trying to get out of sticky situations. I think it goes right under "the dog ate my paper."
