I am grateful that NBA action returns tomorrow night when my Sacramento Kings will once again be on the court. They will likely lose and DeMarcus Cousins will probably get a technical, but I am used to those things. It will still be good to have awesome dunks, alley oops and air balls back in my life.
The fact that I miss the Sacramento Kings, a truly mediocre team, after only a five day absence proves just how important sports have become in my daily routine. I am going to have to get actively into watching Major League Baseball this season, too, to help fill in the gap until football starts. I should be able to watch all of the regular season Oakland A’s games on my local sports cable channel so that will help. Plus it is usually easy to get my six year old excited about following a new sports team with me. Maybe we can even make the 90 minute drive to an A’s game this summer. That would be a fun family outing.
No outings tomorrow night, though. I will be glued to the TV watching my beloved yet beleaguered Kings struggle through another NBA night. I can’t wait.
