Yeah, save it. I know.

“It will never happen.”

“How will we be? Dead.”

I get it. BUT- this is just a fun exercise. After watching the Eagles win their first Super Bowl ever, I did what every other red-blooded American does after the Super Bowl: tune in for the inevitable destruction in the title city. Every time I watch these scenes unfold, my mind wonders into the unknown: What would Sacramento’s celebration be like the night the Kings won the NBA Finals?

My wording was unfortunate, yes I’m aware we have the Republic, Monarchs, Surge, and Knights to thank (someone will undoubtedly remind me of another I’m forgetting). With apologies to all those clubs, especially my beloved Republic, nothing will come close to a Kings championship for this town. In light of Philly fans climbing greased traffic poles, burning things, and eating horse poo (seriously, gross), many of you responded with the craziness that may or may not ensue when everyone spilled out onto David J. Stern Walk…..

Definitely a lot of nude bicycle accidents.

True. Things were LIT at Fannie Anne’s.

A lot of people apparently can’t wait to take off their clothes for a Kings title. I get it.

Broseph: Those dollar movies at Birdcage were a great deal. Anyone remember the Madison Square cheapie theater where Garcia’s and Home Depot is now?

We shall rebuild….

As will I, fam. As will I.

Finally, there’s always “that guy”. Never fails:

A living, breathing, Sacramento Republic fan. Wishing the Kings had moved to Seattle. Boo this man. No accounting for some people’s taste, which is probably why I still have a radio show.

Is It Ok To Believe?

The Kings have won 9 of 13. They also have 3 very winnable matchups in their next 4, which would put them on a 12-5 tear. Add in that they’re just 4 games out of the playoffs, and there’s real reason to be excited. Or is there?
