Thought I Would Finally Get Around to This
So I've been posting a lot during the GDTs and other Home Ice threads, but thought I would introduce myself here.
Been a Kings fan since I was a kid, with too many bad memories of playoff series against the Avs. First game I went to was in the mid 90s at home against the Flames sitting right next to the ice and I was immediately hooked. Unfortunately, my dad isn't a big hockey fan (he is getting to be now) so I never really went to other games. I moved to NYC for undergrad and up to the Bay Area for law school.
Last summer, I had the amazing experience to be at Game 6 and the Cup clincher. Unreal game and was so happy to celebrate that with all the loyal fans of the franchise.
Living up here in the Bay Area makes it difficult to ever get back to LA for games so I mostly get the chance to watch the team from home on my couch.
Glad to have met some of you LGKers at the Wagon Wheel for Game 3 of the Guppies series. Thanks for having this community to talk about the best hockey team in the world.
Oh, and if anyone wants to talk soccer on the side, let me know.

Welcome! I too watch from home on my couch most of the time, and I don't live nearly as far from Staples as you do....but my wallet does.

Welcome! As another Bay area person I feel your distance pain. Watched the very end of the game from Sharks Ice in Oakland last night, they were not amused

I was at the Wagon Wheel before Game 3. It's always great to hang out with Kings fans in enemy territory.
