Kings Fan in West Michigan
Greetings, Kings fans! New to the site here and new to being a Kings fan. But let me explain...
So I never really followed hockey too much in the years prior to last. And since my Trail Blazers weren't in the NBA playoffs, I decided to just pick a team to root for for the NHL playoffs. I figured it would be fun to have a rooting interest. So I was glancing through the standings, and saw the Kings sitting there in the 8th spot. So I chose to watch them for the playoffs. Not sure why they stood out, but I guess I just like teams from Los Angeles. I couldn't even name a single player! So anyways, my first Kings game was Game 1 against the Canucks, and I watched every game of the postseason. I couldn't believe it that the team I picked went 16-4 in the playoffs AND WON THE CUP. Anyways Kings fans, I was just wondering if that makes me a bandwagon fan? I mean I never even really followed hockey at all until last season! Living in Michigan is tough because of A) Red Wings fans and B) Kings games dont get on TV much but I watch them at all possible times. My favorite player is Jeff Freakin' Carter.
Next year I'm going to Staples for my first Kings game.
Go Kings Go!
