Our Northwest

Seattle vs. Sacramento, as seen from LA

Friday, January 25, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

Amid hometown news reports of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings possibly moving to Seattle – the gleeful Northwest angle, and the “don’t count your chickens” Sacramento approach – comes an interesting perspective from Southern California.
   A Jan. 22 Los Angeles Times story depicts Seattle this way: “It’s not nice to gloat, and Seattle is a town that spends an inordinate amount of civic time figuring out how to do the right thing, even while continuing to keep resentful score against those who don’t.”
   The story quotes the producer of the “Sonicsgate” documentary, who said, “The cruel irony of this entire situation is that the only way to get a team back in Seattle is to break the hearts of fans in another city.” Read the full LA Times story.
