Hi, I read the boards every day (after I watch my daily morning clip of Malkin elbowing Getzlaf) and thought the time has come to join in and post.
I've been a Kings fan for most of my life. One of the first things I remember of the kings is "Saved by Vachon!" on the tv. Back then they played the games on regular tv and I'd watch with my Dad and Grandad.
Long story short, grew up, got married, had kids and started my first son in hockey. This was at the same time my hubby and I decided to join a roller hockey co-ed league. lots of fun, but after he received a broken collar bone and I had my ankle practically broken, we decided to just have the kids play. :-)
Really got into hockey then. I sometimes feel like I'm living this wonderful drama. Nothing better than talking about a game or change of lines, etc.
Favorite player - Kopi
Favorite players to hate - Getzlaf and Pronger
Ivanansman is my son's friend. (I think thats his name on this board)
Do NOT like Detroit fans who come to Staples and yell louder than us. Really bugs me!
I have two Kopi bobbleheads and a Kopi rookie card - so sweet.
Ok, thats it. I'll try to post now between work and writing but ONLY after I watch my Getzlaf clip.
ps. how come my avatar I picked did not show up?
