L.A. Kings Hockey Season Redux: Newbie No More Part 4

July 11, 2012


When Darryl Sutter, the Kings’ new coach arrived, the whole season seemed to start over again. This was something that long-time Kings’ fans could understand. This had been their experience for over 40 years, they told me. They hoped to hold on to at least get a berth in the playoffs. Just before the end […]

2012 L.A. Kings Hockey Season Redux: Newbie No More Part 3

June 29, 2012


I remember the first time I saw Jonathan Quick without his helmet on, I thought, “Is he twelve?” lol. I was SHOCKED that this big burly goalie who covered the entire net without breaking a sweat was so young! After a shootout in early November in a game with the Penguins, after making save after […]

The 2012 L.A. Kings Hockey Season Redux: Newbie No More Part 2

June 22, 2012


The 2012 hockey season began early in October. As a newbie, the first thing I did was learn  a few of the players’ names on my team. Sis, the long-time Kings fans, told me who looked promising for the season: Kopitar, Richards, Brown, Gagne, Justin Williams (who we agreed is a fine-looking man) and Dustin […]

Newbie No More, Now a Los Angeles Kings Fan for Life

June 16, 2012


For me, this season with the Los Angeles Kings hockey teams started with Ilya Kovalchuk. It ended with the Stanley Cup. When I decided to jump on the Kings’ bandwagon at the beginning of the season, I had no idea where it would lead. I just wanted to support my long-suffering sister who loved the […]

Los Angeles Kings Hockey 2011-2012: Another NOOB Report

November 17, 2011


We are 18 games into the L.A. Kings hockey season, and I have a few comments about the game last night against the Anaheim Ducks, and well, a couple of other important items. As a newbie (NOOB), I take my chances commenting on such things, but I’ll be brave. Here goes anyway. First, the game […]

L.A. Kings Hockey Noob Report: Questions, questions, questions

October 26, 2011


After the game tonight, I wondered who the Los Angeles Kings are playing next.  I looked it up on my handy L.A. Times Schedule and saw it was “PHO.”  I thought, “Who the hell is “PHO?”    I looked at some of the other team name  abbreviations on the calendar I held in my hand.  “COL” […]

L.A. Kings 2011-2012: Finally Home! The Noob Report

October 19, 2011


The L.A. Kings played their opening game at home here in Los Angeles last night, and how sweet it was to watch them easily beat the St. Louis Blues 5-0.   Home sweet home.   Ahhh, there’s nothing like it.  After bouncing around Europe for the first two games, and then forced to play east coast […]

The L.A. Kings 2011-2012: Observations of a Hockey Noob

October 14, 2011


So far into this very young season, the L.A. Kings have won one game and lost two. I’ve been reading up on the team and the consensus is they have not yet lived up to their potential, given all we’ve been hearing about how “strong” and “deep” their team is this year. In last night’s […]

The L.A. Kings 2011-2012 Season Begins: Confessions of a Hockey Noob

October 7, 2011


As the L.A. Kings 2011-2012 hockey season begins in earnest, I find myself completely overwhelmed with the excitement of it all.  Which is probably why my sister, a Los Angeles Kings super-fan, called me a noob. I think she meant newbie, but it’s there’s something more appropriate about noob.  I’ve got Andre Kopitar mixed up […]
