Kings Royal Experience - Broadcaster for a Night
Well, I just returned from the "Broadcaster for a night" experience.
Im going to tell you about every part of the night.
I knew the night was going to be special when the walk from the car to staples center included a scalper complementing my suit. I arrived and was whisked away to the bowels of staples center. I was taken to the area right outside the locker room and i watched avery and another player workout in the team gym (they asked me not to take pics of the players working out). Then as we walked through the tunnel to the Chick Hearn Press Room and was enjoying the sights of Peter Sykora stretching, Jeoffery Lupul and another oiler jogging around the tunnel, Also I saw Ryan Smith on the bike warming up for the game....hold on the pictures are coming.
Then I was taken to the Chick Hearn Press Room, and i got to have dinner with Patrick O'neal and Lindsay Soto (Even Hotter in person), it was a nice asian theme, and Ron hextall, bob miller, jim fox, daryl evans, and many other were on the next table getting ready. Also a whole table was filled with the nhl officials(goal judge, video goal judge, etc) Jim Hill was ofcaurse there. After dinner we went up to the Press Box...........
As i walked in Daryl and Nick were getting ready to do the pre-game run through, they welcomed me very nicely and were very open encouraged me to ask questions and to really get in close and watch how everything works...

If someone can get in there and get some replays on the board, they're my hero. I'd love to see more replays on the jumbotron.
