Cameraman For Good Day Sacramento Got The Story We All Needed This Week
It happened after last night’s game between the Sacramento Kings and the New Orleans Pelicans was postponed

Pat and I have known videographer Dave Grashof from Channel 13 and Good Day Sacramento for years. He’s been to the station for stories and, living in Roseville, his boys and mine attended Roseville High School together. I play basketball with him regularly (dude is good). He’s as kind and genuine as they come.
Occasionally on Good Day, rather than shoot a story for a reporter, Dave will do his own reporting, and today he filed one that all of us needed, especially during such a bizarre week. It speaks to the positive power athletes and sports can have, and to the dreams of anyone who’s ever loved a game and the men and women who play them.
It came out of Wednesday night’s postponed Kings game. If you didn’t hear, one of the referees scheduled to call the game at Golden 1 center had previously called a game with a player who was later diagnosed with Coronavirus (Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz). So, at the last minute, with thousands of fans ready to watch the Kings play the New Orleans Pelicans, the NBA postponed the game.
Among those fans was 11 year old Jace Martin. I’ll let Dave’s Twitter post take it from there.
