Memorable Kings v. Lakers Near Death Game!

On April 6th, 2008, my two best friends and I went to the Sacramento Kings vs. the Los Angeles Lakers game.  My friend Tim and I are both hardcore Kings fans, while my friend Amit is a Lakers fan living in Sacramento.  When we arrived, we looked at our tickets and headed to our seats.  To our great luck, we were in the middle of the Lakers fan section.  We were embarrassed with a 92-114 loss but I was still determined to have as much fun as I could.  We desperately wanted to see a Kings player drive away so we waited by the player parking garage and waited.  As we waited, Tim started screaming at the Lakers fans nearby, nearly starting a fight between some old lady die-hard Kings fan and a face painted Lakers fan.  We finally went to our car after 15 minutes and gave up all hope of seeing a Kings Player drive away.  As we started driving out of the stadium, I started yelling “Go Kings” as loud as I could at each passing car.  A few people stared at me in confusion, a few people laughed, and a few people ignored me, but I was having too much fun screaming for my team.  As we drove up on this nice looking car with a dread head sitting in the driver seat, I told Tim that I was going to scream but he warned me that I was going to get shot, but I still screamed “Go Kings” at the driver while Tim sped up to get away from the car.  The car sped up to catch up and I got scared and began to slouch down to avoid eye contact.  At the next red light, the car is stopped next to us and the guy said “What the F*** Did You Say to Me?”  All of a sudden, Tim yells, “MIKKI!” I turn around and look and it is the Kings’  7 foot tall 223 pound starting Forward.   I am shocked and I say quietly, “What?”  He repeats his question in an angry tone.  I tell him, “Go Kings!”  He gives me a thumb up and says “Yeaahhh,” and drives away.  As Amit, Tim, and I are talking about our recent encounter with one of our favorite Kings players, John salmons is driving next to us.  We wave to him and he waved back as we drove beside him until we got home.  We got to see our beloved Kings and it was a game that I will never forget.
