I like after the games I go by where the players come out and I have friends from the radio stations and they cover the kings Deuce  MoMo and Sports and Jason Ross they work at the sports talk radio station and my friend  Richard works kings games at the arena. I wait to get autographs from players and coaches  and I wait to say hi to my friends Deuce MoMo and Jason Ross and Richard  then I walk them all to safety to their cars and make sure they made it safe to their car . they are my good friends

I got to play basketball and shoot some hoops at Arco Arena on the kings court. Mike Tavares started the grass roots movement group crown downtown which helped the kings get their new arena and they went to city council meetings and also helped save the kings and not move Crown downtown showed that the Sacramento kings had a lot of fan support they went to NBA league meeting and told owners not to vote for relocation .  The Sacramento Kings organization let the fans play on the court. it was pretty fun this is  me and my friend Mike Tavares
