From the alt-weekly Sacramento News & Review...

...High above the stands of the Golden 1 Center hangs the city’s lone championship banner. It's a relic of the past, a bittersweet reminder of former glory days. Despite the center’s shiny visage, knowing the team that won that banner isn’t around to share the new arena is a hard pill to swallow.


Crying or Very sad

A nice take on the situation. One issue that Sacramento had, and still has, is the lack of corporate headquarters in the city, and thus a lack of potential luxury suite buyers.

Now maybe Golden1 has changed that a little, and maybe Golden1 can use the 17 summer dates a lot more than other places, but they're probably looking at losing $2 million a year in the early days, and the dismal Kings aren't exactly making the cash register chime.

Now if the Kings get good ...

Clay, I know you are a man of many talents, but I had no idea you did stand-up comedy as well! Wink
