Kings Fans Paint Sacramento Purple With Solidarity

Kings' fans launched the one-day "Here We Purple" campaign yesterday by wearing royal purple.      

Renee is a Kings' fan from Rancho Cordova.  She was wearing a Kings' jersey and a Kings' hat outside one of Mayor Johnson's meetings with the delegates.  Her dog Roxie was also dressed in the team's colors.    

"This is her purple bandana and visor.  It's actually more for breast cancer awareness but it's purple and we're going for it and she's trying to support the Kings too." 

Scott Herrigstad was also wearing a Kings' jersey.    
"Two weeks ago it was so dismal that I started a website just to feel positive and promote being positive about things and now there's a lot to be positive about.  I'd say our chances have definitely swung in our favor," Herrigstad said.
Herrigstad says the NBA's visit to Sacramento and news about the Kings' preparing tickets for next season has made him hopeful for the future of the Kings in Sacramento.
