Learning about 2013-14 Kings ... and Cricket


The list of activities scheduled for Wednesday's pre-game FanFest includes everything from a Purple Carpet stroll by NBA Commissioner David Stern, among others, and a cricket demonstration - that is not a typo - set near the Southeast side of Sleep Train Arena at approximately 5 p.m.

The participants include Kings majority owner and India native Vivek Ranadive, minority owners Shaquille O'Neal and Roger Craig, along with team advisor Chris Mullin. What else can I telll you? Before engaging in some light reading about India's most popular sport earlier this evening, everything I knew about India's most popular sport (very little) was gleaned from watching episodes of "Downton Abbey."

Just for fun: The sport known as "the gentleman's game" is played with a bat and a ball, and with 11 players per team on a 22-yard long pitch. Can't wait to see Shaq in that outfit, either.
