*Note: This was originally intended to be a question for the Mail Sac, but my imagination and words got the better of me.
With the recent talk of pop culture trends in recent Mail Sac discussions, a thought dawned on me for an StR inspired contribution to our new Kings and (proposed) arena. What we, the Kings, and the city of Sacramento need is an official StR/Kings themed band. Think the Chicago Bulls Stampede, but with more electricity, hair and crotch bulges. Think Flying-V guitars, Marshall stacks, and foil wrapped zucchinis.
I'm shocked and inspired by the number of musical appreciations and talents our great site has. Is it not time to take things to another level? To turn things up to 11? I want an official StR Rock Band! We need guys and gals that aren't afraid to drink beer from cans, live on tacos, and haul their own gear.
What shall we call this centaur of inspiration? The Zillerbots? Sactown Rockalty? Yul Brynner and the Kings and I?
Where do they play?
How about starting at tailgate parties before Kings games. Then they could graduate up to StR member parties, Kings sponsored events, halftime entertainment....and finally opening the new arena downtown!
This could happen. Just think of the legions of fans (or groupies) that this band would draw. Imagine rocking out with Polotown (when she comes to visit) or ElRonToro, while holding a cold beer in one hand and a fist raised high in the other!
This should happen. If StR is now graduating to live podcasts, and a rumored Section214 variety hour filmed from Ziller's blogging basement, and official house band is a must. Make it happen. Get involved.
Now who's ready to ROCK & ROLL?
