The Kings were tough last night against the Magic. They played their hearts out and came up a little short. It’s the story of the season. Well, not the big story, which is that they’re probably on their way out. I can’t help but watch these games with sadness, with regret… that smart people couldn’t find a way to keep our team here. I agree with Marcos Breton, that this should have all been worked out before the eleventh hour. Yeah, it’s complicated, but I know how Kansas City fans must have felt when their Kings left town. But at least they still have the Royals and the Chiefs. And now Kansas City does have a new basketball arena… and they still can’t get an NBA team. Right now, Hartford, Connecticut is the largest media market without a major sports franchise. So I guess we’ll take over that distinction. Dubious. With all due respect, we’re about to become Modesto. Oh, and I hear that LA fans are dying to have the Kings. Right. That interest level is on fire… right after the Lakers, Dodgers, Angels, Clippers, Trojans, Bruins, Ducks, Pluto, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Knott’s Berry Farm and Charlie Sheen. Then the Kings. Yeah, you’ll be big news in LA. Hilarious. Up here in Palookaville? We’ll live. But it won’t be the same.
