Look Back In Humor, Part Six - Runup to the Initial Vote

So here we go down the home stretch. We're coming up to the first Big Vote, and some folks had the temerity to accuse StR of presenting only one side (the pro-Sacramento) side of the picture. This led Greg to pen a rather lengthy, but immaculately sourced, article in which we on StR were able to face the things that work against us, as well as for us.

This led to some chiding of Greg by Heuristic Lineup...

Loud Sac Purp gave us a wall of text and a new name for a new disease...

Later that day, our friends up north on SR got themselves into another self-induced tizzy because they thought that KJ was calling out their fanbase for not supporting their team, and they went as far as demanding an apology from KJ. Ziller basically said "fuck that noise", temporarily relaxed the instaban for talking about SR, and let the commentariat take it from there. And so we did. First up, otis and 214...

Then 214 all by hisself...

...djrick tried to make a constructive comment. A68 (and others) had different ideas...

This thread seemed to settle right into 214's wheelhouse...

Mitch calls out the SeaTards on their obvious hypocrisy...

...and otis magnified that hypocrisy when a SeaTroll tried to derive equivalency to both sites...

...and Ichristmas delivered the coup-de-grace...

...twice.

Juan Primo gives us the evolution of the SeaTroll thought process...

Deleran on how one can lie without coming out and telling a lie...

A Blazer fan came in and tried to comment on the whole situation. He chose...poorly.

ASSN...

HarveyRant...

Ziller rates the SR guys...

10KingsFan10...

Finally, Carmichael Dave had had enough, and unleashed the Kraken right on Brian Robinson's head...

For those of you scoring at home, that's one article and commentary thread with 16 comments that warrant recall.

So "sources" later told Ailene that Kings sales and ticket staffing should make plans for being in Sacramento for the 2013-14 season. When ElRon told us he was on a plane and had heard the Seattle arena financing was worse, the StR hive mind got to work - and Aykis took home the hive prize with this one...

The DTP arena renderings come out, and a StR meme is born courtesy of folsomfella...Ladies and Gentlemen - Fappy Duck!

Of course, yokosolo had some concerns about the arena design...

During the whole process, we learned to trust some Twitter sources, and to make fun of others. One of the former group would be Tim Montemayor, mainly because as a talk radio host/reporter based out of San Francisco, he had more than a little patina of neutrality, unlike some other "reporters" we could mention (*cough*CD5*cough*). On the 24th of April, Monty got to tweeting, and a whole bunch of people got to commenting about the prospect of Seattle waiting another year and Sacramento keeping the Kings...

Mtmoore (twice):

Squid725:

Somebody needed a Snickers bar...

...and 214 needed to wield his trusty machete.

At long last, the word comes down that the combined relocation and financial committee would meet on the upcoming Monday, April 29th, and pass its recommendation on to the remainder of the BOG. Finally, we see the end of the tunnel. Or was it a roller coaster?

A thank you from a lurker...

Hang on tight, y'all!

Swists puts out the warning to cities if things go poorly for Sac...

Rdma7x...

Father Time gives us the Sutterville Address...

Ziller then explores the upcoming offseason under everybody's second-worst-case scenario - the Kings remaining under Maloof ownership in Sacramento. Paging Mr. Prowse...

Sims gets out his copy of the DSM-IV and makes a discovery...

At last, April 29th comes around, and Ziller scares the crap out of everybody with his "goodbye to all this" thread. Turns out he was just saying goodbye to all the twists and turns of the ownership saga, a view with which many of us are in 100% agreement. Like DubTC...

C-Dave jumps in to let Omikron have a little bit of razz, and Omikron gives back in equal measure...

A non-native gets in the game...

214 passes along his thanks...

Kfipp rambles a bit...

DaRooster gets his Highlander on...

Just Because...

Apropos of nothing, STF dropped in another masterful Tim Duncan GIF

Fireplug getting seriously Old Skool...

So we sit and wait for news, when clues start coming out at around 2 pm on the 29th of April, and then a cryptic tweet came out from C-Dave...

Best. Red. Banner. EVAR!!!

Even Grumpy Cat was impressed.

Bruski sums it up:

NBA makes it official...

Epic GIF Thread? Epic GIF thread. Too many to parse out here, but the stills are still outstanding...

Cabz

Kromeace for two...

Boogie-reke with the meme-tastic KJ dunk GIF for 63 recs...

Go here if you want your browser to blow up with all the GIFfy goodness put together by Schnuppermeister, but beware - it's 54 GIFs in one comment.

Fappy Duck makes a return for 49 recs for folsomfella

Flight KJ with some messages for the former owners and a former player...

UniversalGuru comes in to offer some heartfelt congrats...

Zenballer...

214 still needs some convincing...

A confession...

Omikron...

CloudSix...

A Clips fan hopes he doesn't break the rules on StR...

Even Hafner came in to offer a few words. Hopefully he didn't get Instabanned at SR...

An unbiased view of things...

A bit of love for our former center/forward...

Scirocco's sister trolls hard...

...and Carpeteria gives us the gal that made it all possible:

On that note, we close out that particular article, but do go by and look at all of the GIF work - it's worth the time.

So here we are - two weeks away from the Formal Vote, with the initial committee vote in our pockets. What could possibly happen? Well, the answers to that - and more - will be found in our next installment of Look Back In Humor.
