Royal Relief Effort

The Kings and radio home KHTK 1140 AM have put together a neat auction to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Among the items up for auction:

-A one-hour practice session for your kid with the Coach Pete Carril. (Coachie may or may not make your little one cry during that time.)

-Dinner with Geoff Petrie and his wife Ann Marie.

-A round of golf with Rick Adelman. (We bet he uses the same five clubs throughout the entire afternoon.)

-A video game challenge with a Kings player. (We choose Kevin Martin and F1 2004.)

-Guest host spots on The Rise Guys, Sportsline 1140 and SportsTalk with Jim Kozimor.

-And our personal favorite ... courtside tickets to watch Kings v. Timberwolves on Dec. 4 with the Maloofs following dinner in the Maloof Suite prepared by the Maloofs' personal chef. Mmm.

All auctions start at $1,000. As of noon Tuesday, there's one bid total... on a 2006 Monarchs road game package. (Yolanda Griffith's stalker lit up when he saw this auction item.) We assume bids will come in soon for all the auctions, however.

(Also, check out KNBR 680 AM's relief auction if you're a fan of the surging Giants, A's, Raiders, Niners, Sharks, Warriors (ha ha), Earthquakes or Sabercats. Great auction items there, too. The one for the W's -- starting at $2,500 -- includes a luxury suite for 16, four parking passes, food and drink and a Baron Davis signed jersey.)

If you would like to donate but you can't drop a couple large on these fabulous prizes, you can always visit the American Red Cross. Their minimum donation is $1. Also, several Sacramento radio stations will be broadcasting live from Arden Fair Mall today and tomorrow to collect funds.

That Rick Adelman joke was beautiful. That's why I read this blog. I'd advise Yolanda's stalker to back off. I've seen her play, and she doesn't mess around. There was an 18 month period where should would have been the second toughest player on the KINGS (behind BoJax). The stalker is liable to get a beat down. Just sayin'.

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.
