Firstly, I would like to give a big thanks to Rink Rat for helping me get my account squared away. I have been trying for over a year to get it online ... so again, Rink Rat, Thanks!
About me ...
I have been a Kings Fan since the Forum days and lived through years of glory, pain and jubilation. I also had to suffer through the Ducks winning the Cup first as my brother is a Ducks fan. My dad had season seats at the Forum and I saw many great games there. I remember watching Gretzky when I was little and not fully understanding the type of special player he was. I also remember many times McSorley dropping the gloves before the puck even dropped. I remember Kelly Hrudey blocking a shot with his face mask and requiring stitches and a new mask because the old one was dented. I was also at the Forum with my dad when the Kings won game 6 against Toronto of the Conference Championship when the Kings went to the Cup Finals. I have so many fond memories of the forum from when I was a kid ... Unfortunately, I remain the lone holdout in my family as they all root for the Ducks now.
I don't get out to as many games now as I would like, but I follow the Kings on TV and radio as much as I can. As my user name implies, I live in Duck Country but I stay true to my roots. I love hockey and I love the Kings. I have cried 6 times in my adult life ... 3 times when I laid my grandparents to rest, once when I got married, once when my daughter was born and when The Kings won the Stanley Cup.
Favorite Kings Players of all time ...
(In no particular order)
Teams I hate ...
Im sure there is more that I forgot to mention ... As I remember I will update. Thanks for reading!
