Yeah i never understood the SMACK TALK between these two fwy divided teams,
I still remember Jason's memorial service at Clark Stadium in Hermosa. It was amazing the amount of love. And they played Bro Hymn. Mydad is friends w/ Jason's dad who does his taxes. Jason's younger brother used to do mine.
I remember in high school (I went to RUHS) and on 4th of July PW always played a impromptu show. Word would spread down on the Strand and then it would end up being on like 8th St. and Monterrey in Hermosa. The cops would be there and just make sure it was safe. Some of the craziest but nicest mosh pits I've ever seen. This would have been between 92-96.
I had one stupid Ucks fan insult me at work a few years back (and in this instance it was manning a Salvation Army kettle) and wouldn't let up the personal insults and the ones about our beloved Kings... The one day I got even she had a smile on her face telling a few friends that she's going to night school...
Without missing a beat I imitated her inflection and yelled "WITH A FACE LIKE YOURS I WOULDN'T SHOW IT IN DAYLIGHT EITHER!!!"... Her friends were laughing so hard that I thought that they were about to need some medical assistance... They even dropped $20 each thanking me for the best laugh they had in years...while that Ucks fan just went away and for some strange reason stiffed me...
The insults stopped after that...
In my eyes, you can't be a fan of both teams. You are one or the other. Its like a UCLA fan liking USC. Good luck w/ that. It has nothing to do w/ "online personalities." Offline I despise them as well. If I moved right next to the Ponda I would hate them even more. Its not real feuding.
The fact is, its only a geographical rivalry. Nothing more. The Canucks, Sharks and Coyotes are much bigger rivals than the Ducks. If the teams play in the playoffs, GAME THE **** ON!
I'm ok w/ Teemu. But it was great seeing him get is panties all twisted after Doughty lite his ass up last night. You can't be a fan of both teams if you're a real fan. You just can't. Sorry. I can have respect for people/players and not like them. That's two totally different things. I have respect for Crosby's talent. But I think he's a total butthole.
