The Sacramento Kings will become the first pro sports team to accept BitCoin. Great news for all nine of their fans.

The franchise will accept the currency for merchandise and tickets starting March 1, and transactions will be processed through BitPay. It's sort of ridiculous and fitting that the Kings are the first team to start accepting BitCoin. And somewhat related, remember when there was a rumor that Steve Ballmer was going to buy the Kings? Well, that whole thing came and went, and now Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé has the bright idea to get the team in on the whole BitCoin scheme. Any publicity is good publicity. Unfortunately BitCoin does not buy you wins.
