    Default Any Kings fans in Arizona who play hockey?

    I tried this before last year and crickets could be heard. lol Let's try again. I live in Tempe and would really like to get back into playing again. I'm ready to go, just looking for some like-minded people. Thanks!

    No offense, but .... you don't need Kings fans for this. Anybody who likes hockey will do. Laundry, schmaundry.

    What's wrong with joining a team at the local rink? Or just playing pickup?

    Yeah, what a dick. . . they want to gather King's fans to play on a team together. SHUT UP and stop working towards a better time.
    I'm normally in total agreement with you BBO but today you are wrong.

    Two rinks near Tempe, pretty sure you will find Kings fans.

    No, I am 100% right.

    I don't begrudge the OP for trying to form an all-KF team in AZ if he thinks it'll be a neater experience. Someday he'll discover otherwise. Whether that day is tomorrow or 20 years from now hardly matters.

    I'm just saying I've played with ....

    * Kings fans
    * fans of many of the other 29 teams
    * people who couldn't give a hoot about the NHL

    .... and the distribution of various personalities (good, bad, and whatever spectrum of relevent adjectives you want) is more or less the same among all three groups.

    People with purple-colored glasses might think that being able to trade locker-room quips about TM's stoic expression or DD's doughnut consumption will enhance their own hockey-playing experience, but they'd be wrong.

    Playing hockey -- with people of character & work ethic -- totally pwns bull****ting about a particular NHL franchise. And anyone who thinks that character & work ethic are the exclusive province of Kings fans is a fool.

    Jesus ****ing Christ. Excuse the **** out of me for trying to meet some cool people beforehand. I only played one season before and had someone invite me to play on their team. I thought I would be nice and see if anyone nearby wanted to do the same or was looking. I'm not looking for strictly Kings fans, as I know this site is frequented by fans of many teams. Just trying to do my best to network. Sorry I ****ing asked. I'll just go to the rink and ask random strangers. They'll probably be nicer than here at least.

    Sorry for whatever I contributed to the confusion, but ....

    You said you were looking for "like-minded people" on an LA Kings fan board. Is it really so wrong to assume you were searching for Kings fans to play hockey with?

    Lesson Learned: be more clear about what characteristics you're looking for in a player ....

    .... do/don't care about NHL-laundry-worship?
    .... do/don't care about ribald language in the locker room? (sensitive types need not apply)
    .... what range of skill level(s) are you looking for?
    .... need defenseman? forwards? goalies? all positions?
    .... looking to organize a regular private pickup game or form a team for league play?
    .... must be willing to buy post-game beer every ___ games?
    , etc., etc.,


    Wouldn't you agree that these are a bit more descriptive than "like-minded people"?

    BTW, we're plenty nice here (the "cool people" part? not so much). Don't go judgin' all cause of me.

    Anybody else here, and we'd think this was sarcasm.

    But w/ JW, it's all genuine.

    You weren't kidding, were you, John?

    BBO you are still wrong. Sure his original post was vague, but you sure took that ball and ran with it. And ran with it, and ran with it.

    No where in his post did he imply ANYTHING you took from it.

    Let's all just lay off and let the 2-3 Kings fans that play hockey in the valley of the sun skate together and whatnot.

    Lithium,
    My cousin just moved back out that way (she might be in Tempe, went back to grad school but I don't remember which one), she just picked up hockey a couple years ago and is a King fan. I'll see if she's close enough and is looking for a team.
