Probably won't be able to go, but Jimmy's one of the best sports writers in the area that I've met and written for. He's perfect for the workshop.
Anyone who is interested in sports writing should go to this workshop.
The trade is now official.
The Kings did a great job the past 8 days upgrading the frontcourt. The team went from having Spencer Hawes as its only true center to trading him for a proven defender in Dalembert and drafting Cousins and Whiteside. Add Landry, JT and Brockman, the frontcourt could be very good next season.
Hawes showcased his potential as a shooter, passer and rebounder his sophomore season. I think the main thing he was missing this season was heart this season.
He's has very advanced post moves and I hope he pans out in the league.
There's absolutely nothing like seeing a baseball manager getting ejected. Haven't seen one live but I did see a Oklahoma Redhawks player get ejected near the end of Game 4 of the 2008 PCL Championship, the night the River Cats took the series.
Great write-up Lindol. Hopefully, Culpepper really is 100% again. I remember when he was with the Raiders for a year he had 2 rushing TDs and 2 passing TDs in the same game, earning him Player of the Week honors. Hope he does well here in Sac.
Great article. I always wanted to tour underground Sac. The tour definitely sounds like a unique experience.
Thanks. Can't ignore a fence right across the street from where I work when it was slated to open yesterday.
Here at SacPress now. What a difference 5 days makes. Place looks completely different from when I last saw it. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Good story Agnus. Good running into you out there today since KCRA is right across the street. I hope the kids enjoy their new playground.
Tretheway said he wrote the names down so he could remember who allegedly pressured him, but why did he say all six pressured him and then he says only Steve Ayers pressured him? If he pulls those names shouldn't he have accused Ayers only, the first time?
As councilman you never want to be in that kind of situation, publicly accusing six local businesspeople of pressuring you for support of the mayor and then withdrawing five of those names. You say who pressured you the first time so you don't have to pull out names later on.
And if the mayor is responsible on his part, he shouldn't have done what he did. Nothing has been proven on either side yet. It's a serious situation and should be resolved soon. In the end, the one who's guilty should have know that they're in public office and what started as something bad in the end just makes you look worse.
Great vid. You had a great view of the cyclists.
To answer your question, the players, coaches, the organization and the fans of the team who packed that 18th & L block party care.
Glad to hear you're not distracted by sports since you took the time comment on a sports article.
Lance probably paid for the police force. Who knew he was so sensitive over one stolen bike last year? I wouldn't know since I was there more as a spectator and a helping hand for KCRA rather than a journalist, but that's a very good question to ask SacPD and CHP.
I understand why they have so much of the force out there. So many people to keep under control in and around the sport's biggest event on this continent not only downtown, but around the whole route from here to Nevada City. So many of those cyclists could get hurt if even one spectator tries to do something crazy and causes the peloton (pack of cyclists) to crash. Only two were injured on the final laps going around the Capitol.
According to the ATOC, the whole tour brought in 2 million spectators last year and $100 million to the cities that hosted it. I imagine Sacto. got a good chunk of change out of this as well.
Always a possibility to pick up one of them up for the NBA Las Vegas Summer League like they did with undrafted Wesley Matthews.
Played for the Kings last summer but was injured for some of the time. Ends up getting picked up by the Jazz and he became a starter for that team.
That was T-Mobile Director of Marketing Alisa Arner. She was just there to rep T-Mobile and present the award.
Thanks Marty, and good seeing you again today.
I'd like to thank everyone who kept their comments positive and on the story I wrote. You guys are the reason why I love to write and I'm glad you enjoyed the good news that came out of our own backyard.
Even though the RekeROY campaign is officially over, I hope you guys enjoy my future work here on SP. So to end the campaign on a good note I just posted a story about Reke getting his trophy at the press conference and the celebration rally that followed it.
Hope you like it as much as you did this one and thanks again everyone.
Much appreciated. There's a press conference at the practice facility tomorrow around noon. It's not confirmed but what I read on Sactown Royalty is that there's a rally in the works at Arden Fair Mall at 6:30 pm same day, according to the SacBee.
I'll be at the presser and planning on attending the rally if there is one.
By the way, you still have the pics from the Rockets game? There's a guy who writes for SLAM Magazine who wants a picture of him that I took with your camera. Email me back about it.
Look, I'm not going to waste too much time.
First off, Michael Morris, a good friend of mine from school, didn't respond to you. Being a member of the media, you get to go to games for free, meaning I spent $0 for anything there. Sac City, what you expected Sac State, UC Davis?
I said that SP isn't a pawn for KJ and you did. "I commend SP for its mission, but they need to be more careful about acting as the face of the mayor and his suckups by challenging the veracity and purpose of stories leaked or brought by them..."
That is you, right?
You also commented on Mike's Kings story when it mentioned nothing about a supporting a new arena or how winning a game would help them get an arena. Just a Kings win. "One win ain't gonna get 'em that there arena."
That's you too, right? You seem to like to bring up the arena issue when the Kings are involved in a story. That's proven in Mike's story and your first comment above in this article. Am I wrong anywhere. Point it out.
What you call tripe is really truth and I don't need Google to look up the 669 comments you wrote on this site to prove my point.
I've read what you've wrote. You insult readers and writers who have a different opinion than you and take away from the article that was written. I don't care how many comments you have all over the Internet the past 10 years. It still adds up to no articles.
You haven't even proved that I'm wrong in what I say with anything other than what you write. Back it up, show some facts. Type in whatever you want after this. I'll read it, but I'm done talking.
