My favorite team winning the greatest trophy in sports and reliving it again 7 months later got me and my wife balling as well.

seriously, being there seemed like a mini frozen fury. i'm telling ya, after that banner went up, nobody cared. they could have had Amputee Bantam Hockey teams play at that point.

i've said the top 3 moments of my life are these--getting married, giving birth and watching the kings win it before my eyes. seeing scenes such as the ones where they jump off the bench and skate towards quick, brown hoisting the cup, etc gives me the same exact feeling of emotional joy i get when i recall how awesome it was to give birth (seriously, it was so not scary like i thought i always thought it would be) and what a great day i had at my wedding.
