Caution: Bandwagon Overload

Don't go near ARCO Arena Tuesday. Should the Sacramento Monarchs lose their bid to win the WNBA Championship, one hell of a bandwagon might burst.

We're all for our female counterparts playing ball and doing it well. We're not going to lie to you though: We watched all of 45 seconds of Sunday's game, found out the Monarchs won via the swaying bandwagon at the Bleacher Mob and know the possibly clinching game is Tuesday only because Mrs. SKB has a friend taking her kids to the contest.

We won't be parading through Old Sacramento when/if the Monarchs claim the title, we won't be watching the game Tuesday and we probably won't raise our eyelids when the next WNBA season starts.

This trend line from IceRocket shows the teeming bandwagon at work. The Kings have had steady blogospheric coverage throughout the summer (we'll take some of the blame), while the Monarchs got nothing until their playoff run.

So, enjoy yourself, Sacramentan bandwagoneers. True Monarchs fans - congratulations and have fun with it, by all means! And to the organization and team - awesome job and way to go.

To Kings fans that can't be bothered - the preseason is three weeks away.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
