It really is a great Kings SCF issue - the best piece ever from the LAT. It's even on slightly thicker paper than the usual newsprint.

You'll be glad you did.

Had a great time at the rally today. Some thoughts:

-I LOVE Sutter. The crowd went crazy when he started doing fist pumps. Him and Quick probably got the biggest cheers of anyone. Darryl also had a huge smile on his face during the parade...it was great to see.

-Dean and Luc had to hold back tears a few times. Even Quick looked a little chocked up when Bob started reading off his accomplishments and the crowd was going wild.

-Luc reading that email from Marcel Dionne was probably the most emotional part of the whole event.

-I could've done without the politicians. Ugh.

-Was kind of dissapointed by the lack of former Kings players there.

My cell was dying, so I couldn't get many pics, but this is what I got:

Thanks again to the few Hfers who helped make this day so exciting and special. Came home with all kinds of goodies and I still can't stop smiling. My voice is gone. My whole night will be watching the coverage and enjoying the boards.

Actually, allow me to correct that, my whole summer will be about celebrating this I'm sure. It's still needs to kick in all the way. It's so surreal the way I always knew this was our year and I can't freakin believe it's actually happening for us at the same time.

LA Kings will always be my team for life. And they have the best fans in the world. They, and we, deserve this Championship. Can't wait to see the banner go up next season.

Go Kings Go! Party up for a coulple weeks then start resting up for the repeat!

What a great day! So many highlights and things that have already been said.

I want to give a big thanks to Alisa for the tickets for Legion and myself today. We both had a F-ing awesome time today!!!!!! (Just to keep in the same verbiage as our Kings)

My trip to the parade and rally didn't exactly go as planned. Our plane made an emergency landing in Lubbock because a woman passed out during the flight. They were able to revive her just before we landed and EMTs took her off the plane. Then we found out that Lubbock doesn't serve AA 737 planes and they had to fly in an inspector from Dallas.

After a three hour delay, we were back in the air headed to LAX. My wife and I walked into the Staples Center area just before noon. By the time we found an area to stand, the buses were just starting on the parade route. It was awesome to watch, but I wasn't able to get the pictures that I wanted because of the mass of humanity in front of me. I will post some shots when I get back home on Sunday.

Because we arrived so late, I wasn't able to meet up with anyone from here, maybe at a frozen fury game or some time next season.

Really enjoyed the whole event and I'm glad that I flew out here for it. The rally was ****ing awesome. They almost didn't let me in with my camera, but a supervisor let me bring it in. I'll post pictures on Sunday. Too bad I was sitting behind the players, but it was still worth it.

Love everyone here and hope to come back next June so that we can all do this again.



Go Kings Go! We Got The Cup!

If you watch the replay, when they show the buses turning you can look behind them at the next bus and see everyone ducking from the wire and then looking back at it.

When they were still kinda setting up before the players came on the ice, Sutter came out first. Without even thinking about it I stood up and screamed "I love you Sutter!" and he fully aimed his soon to be famous fist pump right towards me (I was 5 rows back). Gave me tingles.

After seeing him so reserved and composed during the run it's nice to see him let go and smile and celebrate. He deserves this as much as every single player.

Also, not sure if it was mentioned, but pretty awesome of staples center to do half price on all food and drinks. Helped make the day even more fun.

Great to learn you at least made it down there Sydor25 !
I'm still old fashioned and only use my cell phone to make PHONE CALLS ... go figure
But I was asking around if others in the crowd near me were HF'ers and had iPhones or what not and could log in to see IF you had made it ... when I left in the morning you had just posted about the emergency landing, and I was like Awwww **** what a bummer.

Anyways ... yes let's do this **** again NEXT YEAR ! We WANT the Cup ... AGAIN ! We WANT the Cup ... AGAIN ! We WANT the Cup ... AGAIN !

Also I gotta be there to see the Banner go up, let's pack Staples ... before all the wannabe bandwagon fans start buying tickets

I don't either. Just an amazing expierence at staples. Something I will obviously never forget. It really hit me when I was able to sneek in the 100s section to catch bob miller calling the last two minutes of the game
