Anthem Singer Takes Knee At New Kings Arena

The Sacramento Kings played their first game at their brand new arena, the Golden 1 Center, on Monday night. Like any arena opening, the whole night was meant to symbolize a leap into the future, into a new era for the Kings. But right off the bat, we got a reminder of the present times in which we’re living when the singer of the national anthem nodded to Colin Kaepernick by taking a knee.

The singer, Leah Tysse, happily took ownership of the gesture in a tweet later on:
