Sacramento food blog Munchie Musings held an online auction on Friday and Saturday to raise donations for the nonprofit ShelterBox, which will send aid and supplies to tsunami and earthquake- devastated Japan.

In a slack game of basketball at Power Balance Pavilion, the Sacramento Kings lost to the Philadelphia 76ers Friday night, falling behind from the very to beginning to lose 80-102. Within minutes of the opening toss-up it was obvious the Kings couldn't hit their stride as they moved the ball around with sloppy passes. It didn't take long for head coach Pete Westphal to call a timeout and break the Sixers’ small lead of 12-9. From that moment on, the Sixers were ahead the entire game. Though the Kings weren't that far behind at the end of the first quarter, the Sixers pulled even farther ahead fairly swiftly and kept it that way. The Kings had their moments in the second quarter.
