October 12: The lights go dark at the Staples Center. The video screen replays the last moments of the Kings' Stanley Cup victory over New Jersey (called by Bob Miller and Jim Fox, of course). After a few shots of the celebration, the crowd is stunned into silence by the face of Dodgers legend Sandy Koufax. "I'm proud to see LA's hockey team join the list of this city's champions," he says in a video message. Then, we switch to a grinning Kobe Bryant, who adds, "It's about time."

The crowd goes absolutely berserk, and the banner is raised. When the lights come back on, it's noticed that night's visitors, the Rangers, came out to watch the ceremony. "I wanted them to see what it's like," John Tortorella says.


love that part
