    Default Saying hi

    Hi everyone. Nice to see a vibrant online community about the Kings.

    My name's Marcus, I'm from LA but go to school at Northeastern in Boston. As such, I've had to deal with BU and BC beating up on our team for two seasons already (and several decades before my arrival), and I'm still having a hard time reconciling my general hatred of goon Brian Boyle with his new team association. In time, I suspect, I will forget the monstrous checks he put on my beloved Huskies and focus on hating BU for winning the Beanpot every year.

    Anyways, I started caring about hockey once I moved over to the east coast. I grew up a soccer player and fan, and hockey takes some of the better attributes of soccer and puts them into a much more action-packed game. My alliance rests with the Kings thanks to my hometown, although you'll find me in Angels red thanks to my general distaste of Red Sox fans. I needed a local team that played them. I hate the Ducks. I generally dislike everything about Anaheim that is not directly related to the Halos. The Boston Bruins suck in a lovable kind of way.

    So that's basically my life story. Good to be here. With any luck (and probably new ownership) I hope to see the Kings (captained by Anze, perhaps?) lift the Cup in a few years time.

    Go Kings!

    Welcome! If I don't get into USC, then I'm going to go to BU. How is the transition from California to Boston?

    Actually, not as bad as you might be thinking. Buy a good winter coat and you won't even notice the cold by the time January rolls around. Culturally, it's very different, although all the major differences are now muddled in my mind after living there for a couple years. Regardless, the transition isn't bad, but coming back for summer feels so much nicer after a couple months of temperatures below 40.

    Below 40? Damn, that's cold. My dream was to always have an ice rink in my backyard, so I can play hockey whenever I want. Are there a lot of open ponds in the winter?

    Haha, below 40 isn't cold. Once it gets into the teens is when it starts to suck. Honestly, when it starts to get warm again in February/March you'll be running around in shorts and a t-shirt when it's 45.

    I'm not too sure about ponds. There's a public skating rink in the Boston Common but it's understandably full of people and really unsuitable for anything even sorta hockey-related. At Northeastern, they open Matthews Arena for open-skate for two hours a day during the week, and you can also join a club hockey team and play every day.
