I had the opportunity to go to the Dodgers/Giants series finale yesterday at AT&T Park to cheer on my Dodgers! Unfortunately, they lost 4-3, but Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett tossed me a little souvenir during batting practice, It’s awesome!!!
Growing up, I had a HUGE crush on actress Jenny Lewis after seeing her in the 1989 movie “The Wizard”. She stopped acting during the 90′s and now sings in a band called Rilo Kiley. I’d never checked out their music until recently, and thought this was a cool record, give it a listen!
Before Mitch Richmond, Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins, The SKD, Slamson, The Maloofs, Sleep Train Arena, and talks of relocating to Anaheim, Virginia Beach, and Seattle, a group of players led by Reggie Theus, Eddie Johnson, Mark Olberding, Coach Phil Johnson, and Owner Greg Lukenbill played NBA basketball in a warehouse with seats and hoops called ARCO Arena I. Playing in front of a little over 10,000 rowdy Sacramentan’s, the Kings made the playoffs in their inaugural season. Below our some highlights from game 3 of their first round series against the eventual Western Conference Champion Houston Rockets in 1986, enjoy!!!
“42″ is in theatre’s today. The movie is a true story about baseball legend Jackie Robinson. Robinson was the first African-American player to sign a contract with Major League Baseball, breaking the race barrier that at the time only allowed for white players in the league. Robinson is not just a sports hero, but a hero for all of mankind, and I for one cannot wait to see this movie!
It was announced earlier this week that sometime next year, FILA plan to re-release the “KJ7″ shoes (shown above), which were of course worn by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson while he played in the NBA for the Phoenix Suns. KJ was the first player to endorse FILA shoes, however they weren’t the only shoes he endorsed. After his endorsement with FILA, he went on to endorse Converse, shown below is an actual converse poster autographed by him from my personal collection.
***Side note, I totally plan to buy a pair of the FILA’s when they’re re-released next year***
Mark Friedman, a local Sacramento developer who’s father Mort was instrumental in the development of the Arden Mall, has stepped forward to be part of the new Sacramento ownership group that wants to keep the Kings in Sacramento and help in the development of a new arena at the Downtown Plaza. Friedman, in a press conference early today, appeared thrilled to join the group saying “I believe in this community, and this project.”
