#RESPECT

Reading Sactown Royalty and this post stood out to me. We need to remember what it is like to be there. Be proud of them as fellow fans and understand that the few idiots on either side are not reflective of two great fan bases. It continues to be important to me on a personal level to acknowledge their strong efforts even as I know the likelihood of their success. In some ways the low odds make it that must more commendable.
To everyone here: You guys rock.

Say what you want about the Kings, but man, our fans are freakin’ amazing. Here we are, in a terrible economy with a team that (to say it lightly) isn’t quite living up to expectations, and in the middle of a huge battle that could leave Sacramento without a major basketball team, for the second year in a row. Talk about a living nightmare. Despite all this, however, I come here to see fan after fan giving away tickets. Giving away tickets! Guys, I almost cried at the generosity I have been seeing.

What other fans would bend over backwards for each other, to see a team that lacks cohesion and talent, in a time where the future of the franchise and the future of some of our own houses are at stake? This ain’t no bandwagon, folks, this is the real deal. We are the best fans in the world.

I hope I will be able to attend that night to join the world’s best and most loyal fans, to support my team – our team, Sacramento’s team – on a game that isn’t even on national television anymore. We’ll show up in full force in our purple to declare our loyalty.

Even in the darkest of times, I realize just how awesome STR users and Sacramento Kings fans across the nation are. You guys are awesome.
