#PurpleAndBlackout - February 9th

Now, I don't have much of a platform, being just one diehard Kings fan, but I have an idea. And I would like to share it with all of you.

February 9th is #HereWeBuy Night. Our Sacramento Kings are going to play the Utah Jazz, to an audience consisting of NBATV and News10. And we're going to ROCK Sleep Train Arena to show WHY Sacramento deserves to keep the Kings. It has also been recently revealed that the Kings are going to sport retro uniforms from the mid-1990's, the half-purple, half-black checkerboarded side panel uniforms. Given this is a night about preserving the Sacramento Kings, I find it rather apropriate they will be wearing the alternate uniforms from when we rattled Seattle in 1996.

Now to my idea.

Does anyone remember the playoffs last year when the Oklahoma City Thunder fans did THIS?





I thought this was immensely cool. What if, WHAT IF, we could replicate this awesome display of unity and support from a fan base? All black in one section. All purple in the next. Black. Purple. Black. Purple. Just like the uniforms. The symbolism is perfect.

There are 48 sections at Sleep Train Arena. I would imagine roll call could go something like this:



Section 101 - BLACK

Section 102 - PURPLE

Section 103 - BLACK

Section 104 - PURPLE

Section 105 - BLACK

Section 106 - PURPLE

Section 107 - BLACK

Section 108 - PURPLE

Section 109 - BLACK
