    Default Rookie status to the max

    Greetings, royal fans! I feel like a fish outta water since I'm new to the forums and really to hockey, in general. I've gone to a few Kings games with my sisters over the last 3 years, but I basically just went to watch people bash one another against the boards. Now I'm officially hooked and trying to watch every game I can on FSW, screaming like a crazy person when we're scored against and an even crazier person when we take a win. I still gotta learn all the rules, but I'm definitely getting the hang of the various penalties and offenses from watching broadcasts. Obviously, I have no cool Kings stories for you (sorry!), but I did stand in line 5 hours with my little sis 2 weeks ago to see Quick, Carcillo, and Voynov live and up close. I screamed "CARBOMB" at Carcillo, which probably made me look like a nutjob, but what can I say, I love the guy's punch-ups. Ummm, I'm just rambling at this point so I'll shut up now. Happy to be on the boards and GO KINGS GO!

    Thanks, mugs and jammer! I've been lurking the last few days while waiting to get posting access and I gotta say the passion and laughs fly fast and hard around here. I'm the last person to ever be interested in sports so this blossoming love affair with the Kings has really taken me be surprise! It's cool to see so many longtime, diehard fans. Looking forward to joining your ranks!

    Welcome fellow n00b! I fully and completely understand the way in which the sport of hockey, and especially the Kings, works it's way inside you and takes hold.

    The sport is becoming pretty addictive and now I'm finally starting to grasp why so many other people grow so attached to this or that team.

    I gotta check vBookie out already and see wht all the fuss is about. Hopefully, the cool kids won't shun this obvious newbie!

    welcome from a fellow crazy screaming person who was also somewhere in line with you at Burbank. I just changed my signature down below this morning, but I was the person who had the pic of Carcillo's first goal as a King down there until today.

    And we don't allow any "cool kids" in vBookie
    GO KINGS GO!

    They welcomed me with open arms. I can guarantee they will welcome you as well.

    Word of advice: be careful when you give out Karma. Make sure it's positive Karma, unless they really, really...and I mean REALLY...deserve it.
