Aussie Open

I was up late last night/early this morning watching the Austrailian Open men's final. I stayed up until the beginning of the second set.
Now I'm watching the third set.
Problem with watching a DVR'd sports event is trying to avoid Twitter, Facebook and Tumbler.
I made the mistake of looking up vintage tennis pictures on Tumbler. As I was scrolling through the pictures, I saw pictures of Djokovic raising the championship trophy.
Oh well, I'm watching some great, inspiring tennis. I think it's time to get my tennis racquets out.
Until next time, thanks for reading!

Twenty One Owners Is Going To Add Up To One Big Problem

So Mayor Johnson found two big whales and 19 millionaires to buy the Kings and keep them in Sacramento.
I don't see this working out. A lot of egos are going to want credit for helping out.
Then this group still has to find a way to get a new arena built. The plan is to demolish a downtown mall and build on the site. That will take years to get done. The area where the current mall is has NO parking. I'm sure a parking structure will pop up somewhere close by.
I wish this group luck. They are going to need it.

I Got The Ravens Right

Well the Super Bowl opponents are set. The local San Francisco 49ers againts the Baltimore Ravens. Back in August I said it would be a Seahawks/Ravens Super Bowl.
The Seahawks were a few seconds and two long passes from Matt Ryan to making it to the NFC Championship game. I think Seattle is an up and comer.
So now the big story is that two brothers will be coaching againts each other in the Super Bowl.
I'm picking San Francisco to win the Super Bowl. The quest for six will be lead by #7 Colin Kaepernick, the new number one man in The Bay.

The Kings Can Stay, The Maloofs Can Take A Hike

Well it seems as if our local basketball club, the team that made Sacramento a major league city, might be moving to Seattle.
The Sacramento Kings are very close to signing a deal to have the team sold to a group of Seattle investors. The team will begin play in Seattle next season.
But wait!!! The mayor of Sacramento and the Maloofs found a potential local buyer to keep the team in Sacramento.
Now the soap opera begins. Will the Kings move or stay? Will the Maloofs drag this out as long as they can? Stay tuned!
