The Sacramento Kings could soon become the Seattle SuperSonics

  • $525M will be paid to the Kings’ current owners in a deal that would see 65% of the team’s ownership transferred to a group of investors fronted by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer. If the deal is approved, the investment group intends to move the team to Seattle, and rebrand them as the Seattle SuperSonics in time for the 2013-14 NBA Season. source

The story behind this tape:

I was working in the newsroom of Sacramento’s FOX affiliate on November 5, 2008 when this piece of videotape came in. The tape shows two men being married at the Sacramento county clerk’s office, only to have their ceremony interrupted by the county clerk who said that, due to the overwhelming number of votes in support of Proposition 8, the county was suspending marriages for same sex couples.

After watching this video on a tape deck in our newsroom, I decided to publish it to our website unedited. Four years later, it’s still there. It’s one of those rare pieces of videotape that tells the story without narration or commentary.

I figured it was worth sharing again today.

The silent embrace before the interview is just … so heavy.

New video: A passenger on-board Southwest Airlines flight 812 filmed what appeared to be a three-foot hole in the roof of the Boeing 737. The plane, en route to Sacramento from Phoenix, landed safely in Yuma, Arizona. A new plane is expected to take the 112 passengers to Sacramento later tonight.

Plane going down. Love you.
Text message sent to a Sacramento woman by her husband on-board a troubled Southwest Airlines plane. The Sacramento-bound plane landed safely a few minutes later in Yuma, Arizona. An eyewitness said a loud bang was heard in the cabin, which caused rapid decompression in the plane. A total of 118 passengers were on-board the plane. A separate flight will take them to Sacramento around 8:30pm Friday. (via producermatthew)
