The next installment of the hockeysee brings me to Los Angeles, the city of angels. To see the Kings, who (of course) won the Cup the year I went. Because I’m that good.
Being that the arena is one of the most used in the country, I hadn’t expected much in the way of team signage (unlike my last stop in Nashville, which is pretty much NHL only). The team did get around this in an interesting fashion, with projectors.
However, in a nutshell, I was pleasantly surprised by the Kings and the Staples center. While the media in LA would be roundly criticized for its “coverage” of the Kings, there were a great many die hard fans, including the man with my favorite jersey of all time.
Next up, I head to Anaheim for a matinee and finish the Predators swing.
