OKLAHOMA CITY – As thousands of Oklahomans are cheering on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Playoffs, there may be a few other fans who are rarely seen or heard.

The mysteries surrounding the Skirvin Hotel have been talked about for years as many people claim the 103-year-old hotel is haunted.

In recent years, many opponents of the Thunder have said they had trouble sleeping in the hotel because of one not-so-quiet fan.
