Best Mascot Ever

Today there will be a parade in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the LA Kings’ 2014 Stanley Cup Championship! I love a parade… in LA in June!

Marking this occasion, I am saying a sad, sweet farewell to the 2013/2014 hockey season, and a big fat juicy hello to the newly crowned 2014 Stanley Cup Champions!

Who says LA isn’t a hockey town?

Tonight the LA Kings are the 2014 Stanley Cup Champions!

Friday the 13th has traditionally been a good day for me, but today is special beyond belief! This Kings’ fan is dizzy with joy and happiness.

Who says LA is not a hockey town?

I’m ready to see the LA Kings play in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final at Staples Center tonight! Go Kings Go!

In celebration of tonight’s playoff game, a look at this season’s NHL Stadium Series at Dodger Stadium in January. Seeing the LA Kings play hockey at Dodger Stadium, seeing KISS perform, and having not one, but two Dodger Dogs were highlights for me. Imagine being able to have a Dodger Dog in January, and seeing Gene Simmons’ face on the Jumbo-tron!

The Great One, Wayne Gretzky, presided over the puck drop. Fantastic!

Anže Kopitar. My favorite two-way forward. A three-time Bill Libby Memorial Award winner for team MVP, Kopi has spent his entire career with the LA Kings and has led the team in scoring for seven consecutive seasons – not bad for a centre.

Despite his power and size, he thrills fans with finesse and subtlety. Hat trick anyone?

Yup, there’s a lot to be said for a big man with soft hands.

LA Kings: Getting a Snap of the Game-Winning Goal

So much of life is being in the right place at the right time. This is also true in the life of a sports fan. I have been lucky enough to be at a game where something really special happened and I got to witness it. Or, I was simply in the the right spot to get a snap of the LA Kings game-winning goal just before it went in.

As sports fans, these are moments we live for.

And, yes, this went in.

Just giving a little help to my favorite hockey team at Staples Center in Los Angeles ;-). Among other players, pictured here are LA Kings captain, 2011 NHL Foundation Player Award winner, Dustin Brown, and the best hockey player in the NHL, 2012 Conn Symthe Trophy winner, goaltender Jonathan Quick.
