I have been a Kings fan since the 1990s, decades before SJ or the Ducks. I am not about to change teams just because Ducks moved into what was Kings country. The problem is everywhere in South OC, its Ducks gear, nothing for Kings in stores, etc. (so I buy online, no big deal) but the real issue is while wearing anything Kings (I do proudly) I have had businesses refuse to serve me, solely because I am a Kings fan...I'm not kidding. So many times I have told people the same story, I'm not changing teams because Ducks moved into what was Kings territory. (Ducks need to move to SF or SD).
Recently, I had some goofy owner of a store (older woman) make derogatory remarks about the Kings jacket I had on "oh, you can't wear that in here," and state "we (pointed to her husband) are Duck fans" before I said a word...like a give a you know...I never said a word, I was waiting as my wife was shopping. The owner said she did not like Kings fans and repeated that she wanted me to take my jacket off, lol, I had a Kings shirt on underneath. Without saying a word, you could see the hate in her eyes. lol I told my wife (who was getting ready to make a few purchases) don't buy anything, and we walked out.
SO PLEASE WEAR KINGS GEAR AND GO IN THE STORE. Wild Bird Unlimited in Mission Viejo (5 Fwy at Alicia - right off the freeway in front of LA Fitness) wearing Kings gear and see what the owners wife (mega Duck fan who has no doubt never even put a pair of skates on) will say when she realizes that in sheer numbers there are a lot more Kings fans in CA then she thinks:
