Are you a Sacramento Kings fan? Ha, no, shut up, you're not. They're half a game ahead of last place in the West, 2-8 in their last 10, headed for the lottery again. They're probably leaving town. Who would ever want to go to a Kings game?
Old stoners, apparently, or so think the Kings. A reader passed along an ad for the following ticket package available for tonight's game against the Thunder:
Long Live The Dead
Dead Head Pack
April 20, 2012
Carolyn Garcia, "Mountain Girl"
Susana Millman, Grateful Dead Photographer
Dennis McNally, author of A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead
and Bill Walton, NBA Hall of Famer
Proceeds benefit the Rex Foundation. Packs start at $49.50 (includes ticket, t-shirt, and meet & greet).
The thing is, they had the first annual iteration of this event last February, on the ninth. No synergy there. So they boldly shifted it to 4/20 this year. Keep on truckin', Sacramento.
