Living in the East Bay, Oakland specifically, there is nothing that comes close to the experience of going to a Warriors game at the Oracle Arena AKA the ‘Roaracle’. Oakland is home. The Oracle is in the backyard, BART is the gateway. Oracle Arena is a playground, that’s where the Splash Brothers play. Curry and Klay making it rain. Cali is in a drought, but the Oracle forecast is beyond a chance of showers.
Hop on the BART, riding amongst fellow Golden State fans heading towards the Oracle. See those read letters? They read ORACLE. The excited crowd exits off BART and crosses the pedestrian bridge. A bridge of yellow and blue. Anticipation and tension can be felt. The energy is palpable. The crowd walks through the doors of Oracle Arena with an unrivaled liveliness. The build up, that’s the potential energy. Curry will turn the net into water. Splash.
