Here in Boston the only way to go to a signing is to buy a ticket to a collector's event and wait in line for an athlete that was paid big bucks to show up. Now I know the reverse side of that is Boston wins a bit more than the Kings, but still a worth while time for you and your son. This story brings home the value that a sports franchise can have in it's community. For your sake I hope they don't go to Seattle (though I do want the Super Sonics back).

It handcuffed the team for a couple of seasons, but it saved the old ownership about a million bucks on their way out the door. They had already sold he team and did the move to lower the salary figures they were responsible for in over their last few months.

So if any Houston fans want to trade a Patterson for a Robinson - let me know!
