After months - nay, Years! - of agonizing over will they/won't they stay in Sacramento, my brain is still running in OCD mode (Obsessive Cowbell Disorder) on All Things Kings. One symptom of my OCD is thinking up ideas for the future home of the Sacramento Kings or for Kings NBA 3.0.
For example - I did not know the rich history of this team until I read James Ham's wonderful story on Cowbell Kingdom "From Rochester to Sacramento with love." Whoa! This team is one of the original 9 teams that eventually formed the NBA, along with the Knicks, Celtics, Warriors, Lakers, Pistons, Hawks, Wizards (Bullets) and '76ers (Nationals). Talk about a pedigree! And The Rifleman's Chuck Connors was once a player for this franchise. Hot dang! That gives me an idea for the new arena... but where do I post that idea?
I post it here. Yay!
Yes, I admit this is a self-serving tool - a spot to download ideas so I can get them out of my head and make space for other things to obsess about (like editing this post).
I'm so grateful for our new owners and for the fact that we have a future with the Kings in Sacramento. But I've also been hopped up on anxiety juice so long that I need a place to talk about how exciting it is to have said future.
If anyone else wants to join in posting ideas - from the fabulous to the mundane - I welcome the company. Kings fans are the best fans in the world (Vivek said so!), with passion and creativity that are second to none. So if you've got an idea, let it fly.
It's Mission Possible time, yo!
