The Sacramento Kings are back on the track to the league cellar, with one of the worst months imaginable. But there was a silver lining in Sacramento sports last week. I wrote a full column about Austin Collie’s efforts Sunday helping the Indianapolis Colts reach the Super Bowl, but he deserves mention in The Weekly Snitch, too.
El Dorado Hills native Austin Collie is going to the Super Bowl. After an amazing performance in Sunday’s AFC Championship game, he was a main reason the Indianapolis Colts got in the big game, but he now could be a big reason the Indianapolis Colts win it, too.

The excitement that surrounded the Kings earlier in the season is fading with every loss. With a 108-97 defeat at the hands of Atlanta, the Kings dropped their 12th game in the last 14. The Kings started well, racing to a 10-point lead in the first quarter. But the second half has become a problem for the team. Sacramento seemed to be a step slow to every loose ball, and Atlanta, paced by Jamal Crawford’s 20 points off the bench, cruised to victory.
When rookie Tyreke Evans joined the Kings earlier this year, a haunting past followed him to Sacramento, and yesterday it caught up with him again.
Fighting, bull riding and basketball dominated the sports scene in Sacramento recently. A mixture of the three in a Northern California city proved quite interesting.
