Re Arena design: Sacramento tries so hard to be hip and sophisticated. But the roof top lighting design proposed for the downtown stadium is right out of Barnum and Bailey. The description notes that the system will flash purple lights on the stadium roof to indicate when noteworthy events happen inside.
I guess the upside of the concept is that since the stadium will serve as the home court for the Kings, the bulbs will not need to be replaced that often.
