Kings are getting a Nationally Televised game on Dec 16th on ESPN

Via Orange Lazarus of StR, and the Kings press-release, the headline you just read is not a fluke.

Now, do I care? No, not really. It happened with the Bucks a week ago, and it’s clear that national networks do pay SOME attention.

On the other hand, I do like it more for the national fans who don’t live in Sacramento who complain the Kings aren’t on national TV enough. Here’s your opportunity.

Truth be told, I hate fans who complain about that shit anyway. If you don’t live in market, you won’t get that many games. And, while money is tight for most people around the world, it’s not like this argument wasn’t uttered in 2002 either. Some people just are uptight about spending money and are completely cheap. If you care enough, you’ll buy it. If you don’t, you won’t. While I have my complaints about Broadband as an entity, at least I bought it to watch the teams I want to watch play. And, it’s not like you pay that much for the service when you consider it’s for a whole season. If you pay 180 bucks for a season, you’re paying a dollar a day for the service. It’s actually less expensive than getting cable with local Kings coverage. The 180 bucks is for those who have League Pass on their TV. It’s less than that for Broadband.

At this point all it means is that the Kings are on ESPN for the first time since Ron Artest played in the 916. National recognition never hurts any franchise or city (as far as I can tell).

So, if you like a stocking stuffer here you go.
