STM Profile - The Cody Family
For the Cody family, being sports fans runs in their blood. Claude Cody was raised in a very sports-oriented family. He was a high school coach for over 20 years, and his father coached, as well. Naturally, Claude was drawn to the Thunder when the team first arrived in Oklahoma City in 2008. He started coming to games as a share partner on season tickets, but by 2011, he became a full Season Ticket Member on his own.
Claude began bringing his wife Barbara and their daughter Paula to games when he got full season tickets, and the whole family has become hooked on Thunder Basketball. Unless they have an emergency such as a hospital visit, the Codys make the 30-minute drive from Tuttle to attend every home game.
The Cody family loves the game atmosphere inside Chesapeake Energy Arena and enjoys the top-notch treatment they receive. Paula enjoys walking around and greeting employees throughout the arena. She has become a friend to many Thunder staff members, who enjoying seeing her at each home game.
We hope to keep seeing the Cody family throughout the NBA Playoffs and again next season! GO Thunder!
