People who are into basketball go all out and purchase packaged season tickets to enjoy all the games in a particular season. For those who live in Sacramento, California, a team they might have bet on is The Kings and parched a packaged deal for the games ahead. Well, many did, but there was a time when the team seemed to be falling apart.
The Team Was Floundering
Many people started losing hope when a famous player from the team – Tyrese Haliburton, was traded and went to play for Indiana. And then the sour decisions kept coming and coming for The Kings, which made people skeptical that anything would come from the team. When they got into a losing streak, it left some people like J.J. Jose wondering whether to keep their tickets.
The Kings’ Fans Held Hope
J.J. was about to give up on the team, like many others who wanted to give up their tickets even though they’d had them for so long. But as J.J.’s brother told him – patience was necessary. He told him to keep hold of the tickets and that things would get better. Many followed the indirect advice and hoped that something good would happen for their team.
Having Hope Was Right
After a long time, people finally saw that buying season tickets for The Kings were justified. Things were starting to look up for the team. The coaches were invested in making something out of the players, and the players paid off that generosity and investment with better play, game after game. Arlene Munoz, a business student from Elk Grove who had purchased season tickets with her husband in 2019, had said that it was a risky investment, but she felt like there was a ray of hope. She says they’re in it for the long run and looking toward the future.
When you’ve invested your time in a particular team, isn’t it worth keeping hope that things will turn around, even if they seem lost? For many fans of The Kings, Sacramento’s basketball team seemed lost, and many were wondering whether or not to give up their packaged deals on season tickets, but something made them hold on. And they were right to believe. As it turns out, when you’re in it for the long run, you have to hope that the sun will come out again for that favorite team!
Could ‘The Mountain’ Be Chasing an NFL Dream?
There’s a high chance that you’re familiar with the man they call “The Mountain.” Standing at a whopping 6-foot-9 and weighing 450 pounds, you probably don’t need us to tell you why he’s been given such a nickname. Over the course of his career, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has become the World’s Strongest Man, a Hollywood actor, and all-around legend, but what you might not know is that he has also been approached by various sports leagues to join their ranks. This means that an NFL career could be on the cards…
A Man of Intense Strength
Even if you don’t follow him on social media and watch his record-breaking deadlifts on Instagram Live, you probably know who Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is. Often called “The Mountain” and “Thor,” this Icelandic beast made waves when he took on a major role in the Game of Thrones franchise. This helped him showcase his career as a man of intense strength, and he has since gone on to win countless accolades as one of the strongest men in the world.
Approached by the Best
Many people have noted that if The Mountain had been born in the United States that he would have immediately been directed into the world of NFL. Thanks to his size and his strength, he would have made a great addition to any football team. However, the Iceland native opted to head into the strongman world instead. He has had offers come his way, though. When he was a youngster he was offered the chance to become a professional basketball player, the WWE has tried to enlist him as one of their fighters, and he’s even had the Indianapolis Colts make a run for him in 2013. He turned down the NFL offer, but it seems as though you never know what’s on the table for this big guy.
Fingers crossed that the Mountain changes his mind.
