Giving Thanks

I know this is sort of late to do this, but I've been really busy. Here are the sports things I'm thankful for this season:

1. The Kings being 7-8
2. My football team went 6-0 this year
3. Running the 5K for Run to Feed the Hungry
4. Basketball season starting at my school and my dad coaching my team
5. My new, cool basketball shoes

What are you thankful for?

Kings First win in 09-10

On Monday night, the Kings beat the Grizzlies in over time 127-116. Now they are 1-3. Kevin Martin led them to that win by scoring 48 points.

At the beginning of the game J.T. came to center court and at first I thought he was going to sing the national anthem, which would have been really funny. But instead he got us pumped up.

In the first quarter, they got themselves in a slump, but in the second quarter they really came alive. They tied it and then they led the Grizzlies, and then the Grizzlies tied it again, and that was pretty much the story of the game -- well, in regulation, of course.

During the timeouts, I really liked watching the break dance crew. I also liked the "Mystery Karaoke" with Jon Brockman and Spencer Hawes. It was really funny! And I saw some of the Grizzlies watching it, too, and they liked it.

Then in overtime, in the first two to three minutes, nobody really scored, but in the last two minutes, they Kings really came alive. Once the Kings had the game pretty much wrapped up, the Grizzlies hit two shots. In the last two minutes you could feel the vibration of people clapping and cheering. There was not one person sitting -- everyone was on their feet. In fact, I had to cover my ears, it was so loud!

It was a wonderful game and I was glad I was there to see it. Now let's get the next win on Wednesday v. Atlanta at home.

Goooo Kings!
