I have been meaning to introduce myself but I rarely stray away from Home Ice. I never got around to it. I guess it's better late than never. I have been an LGK nut since 2000 or 2001 but I couldn't remember the password. I couldn't really stay away so I made another one a few years ago.
I love this site simply because there are crazy Kings fans in here. I grew up in a basketball atmosphere. I grew up watching the Lakers and the Bulls. Hockey was foreign to me. My family and I migrated from Manila to LA around 1991. I didn't even know what hockey was. One day I saw a game on tv and I was glued. I thought it was the awesomest thing I ever
saw. I became a fan of Gretzky and the Kings ever since through the very, very bad times and the good. I tried playing but I'm a horrible ice skater. So I just stuck with street hockey. I often skated inside the house with my roller blades pretending I was on a breakaway and wristing a shot past a pretend goalie. I had to stop because my mother was furious that I made a couple holes in our walls. She find it odd that I was checking the walls as well. It's not very "lady like", she says. But I like it rough.
I love the Staples Center. But I miss the Forum sometimes. It was fun watching games there. I only have a few friends that are hockey nuts. So when I go here I feel at home.
My name is Roanne. People call me Ro. And the game is about to start...go KINGS!
