Blind Kings fan here
I guess it is about time I joined this forum. My name's Josh de Lioncourt. I've been a hockey fan for about 25 years now, and a hard core Kings fan for about 20 of those. I'm a huge fan of Nick Nixon on the Kings radio network, who is hands down the best play-by-play announcer in hockey history. No ther is able to give such a clear picture of the action to someone who can't see it.
To a much lesser extent, I'm also a Penguins and Blues fan.
I first got interested in Hockey when I was 8-years-old or so, because MacGyver was a fan. I loved that show...still do really. Richard Dean Anderson, who played the title role, was a tremendous hockey fan, and they incorperated that into MacGyver's character on the show. He even had a Kings jersey. It wasn't long after that i was hooked.
In non-hockey interests, I help run a web site for blind users of Apple products The Mac-cessibility Network (Apple makes all of its products, Macs, iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc usable by the blind and visually impaired, unlike just about any other company). I also co-host Masters Cast - The First He-Man and She-Ra Podcast a podcast devoted to Masters of the UNiverse, of which I am a huge fan. And I have a band. You can check out our EP on iTunes under the band name Stage 19.
I am an avid reader, music lover, and Kings fan for life.
Thanks for reading! This community should be fun to participate in.

Welcome to LGK!!
Nick is the best! I like how he always tells which way the Kings are skating so you can picture it in your mind.
"The Kings are skating from right to left."
Have you ever gone to a game?
