Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

The Kings have the coolest home in the NBA

Before becoming the Sacramento Kings, the team was known as the Rochester Royals. Located in Sacramento since 1985, the team moved to their new home, Golden 1 Center, in 2016. And it's not your typical sports arena! As the most technologically advanced arena in the NBA, Golden 1 Center hosts a number of different performances throughout the off-season. Although Sacramento has fairly good weather, the area is powered differently than most arenas in the NBA world. The Golden 1 Center is entirely solar-powered.

Additionally, the arena hosts a farm-to-court food initiative allowing fans to choose from locally grown, gourmet food while watching the game. While you can still grab a hot dog and a beer, the arena's commitment to being environmentally sustainable has been an important part of the team's philosophy. Since the Kings were voted to stay in Sacramento in 2013, they aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
