    Default Better Late Than Never

    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!

    Thanks Jammer! Fortunately, my relatives are around Manila. But I do have friends who have relatives in that area who are still missing. It's awful.

    I haven't skated in a long time. But I'll pick it up again!

    Hey there, Ro! Cool to see another Filipino Kings fan round these parts. I'm born and raised in L.A., but most of my extended fam is back in Cebu. Thankfully, they're all safe and sound. Glad to see your own fam wasn't directly affected by Haiyan/Yolanda! Sorry to hear some friends of yours weren't as lucky. It's terrifying to see how devastated the Phils have been in the past few weeks.

    Glad to hear you family made it through safe as well. Cebu got the earthquake whammy not too long ago also.

    Thank you, jammer. I'm extremely lucky that nothing happened to my fam through those two major disasters. I really feel awful for the countless others who can't say the same.

    You had me at "I like it rough." ... but then lost me at "I miss the Forum sometimes."
