Earlier today the Kings quietly announced that they have scheduled a press luncheon with Mike Richards for July 27th. So mark your google calendars or your Icals or whatever else you use to make up for a lack of memory for next Wednesday at 1pm to watch the live portion of Richards’ first bona fide media scrum with the Kings.

It’s about time. While we certainly don’t insist that Richards disrupt his summer plans to rush out here, we are glad to finally see our new boy donning the sweater. Speaking of which, though I like the black jerseys, I’m a little perturbed that I can not technically say that Richards will don the crown at the luncheon. What do I say other jersey or sweater? Don the plate? Take the black? I really have to stop reading Game of Thrones.
