Dear Los Angeles Kings Marketing Department,
I'm sorry for everything I've said over the past 3 years. What you put together last night at the Los Angeles Kings first home playoff game in 8 years was simply perfect. I apologize for being such an asshole, especially this past season. Go Kings Go!
The Royal Half
Sure, I might have seen Kings playoff hockey in person on Saturday in Vancouver. But seeing the Kings first playoff game in Los Angeles in 8 years is something that Kings fans have been waiting for… well... for 8 years. And when I first arrived at the arena I have to admit, I was a little concerned that the Kings Marketing Department wasn't going to rise to the challenge.
All right. Balloons!
I'll take "Things that look wrong for $1000", Alex.
And inside the arena, there was a soft attempt at adding some spice... using bunting!
That or a Harry Potter convention at Staples the night before got really crazy.
But then, Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy and I made our way up to our seats… for the first time past April 15th in 8 years… and I saw the sign.
And I knew this was gonna be awesome... but I had no idea it'd be THIS awesome.
Holy Shit that was awesome.
Kings 5, Canucks 3
See how the first Kings playoff game in 8 years unfolded.... after the jump!
