The Kings Did NOT Take the Blue Jackets Lightly
I ran into former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda before the game and I said, “Hey, Tommy” and he replied, “I’m Batman!”
So it didn’t surprise me when the first puck was dropped he shook Dustin Browns hand and then left Jack Johnson hanging. He even forgot to take the puck.
The Kings on the ice came out smoking like a rastafarian joint. They were on the puck like a pitbull is to a poodle. There were fists flying like a prison riot. There was tension like when your mother-in-law comes for a visit.
And the Kings scored first.
Thank you Drew Doughty.
Matt Greene was hitting everything in sight and taking a few himself. Most of us never really liked Matt Greene and could have thrown him away like leftover Chinese food. Until we realized just how valuable he is. Like toilet plunger valuable. He just doesn’t take any crap and I was glad to see him back.
Anyone else notice Greene had his “A” back and Richards didn’t?
Jonathan Quick is back as well. Thank God.
As I mentioned yesterday, Kyle Clifford hadn’t scored a goal or gotten into a fight since Bugs Bunny cartoons were still in theaters. I did see him and Jarred Boll trading salmon recipes and then he scored the go ahead goal. It was the first time a 3rd or 4th line player had scored in 6 games… At least that’s what I thoughtn I heard them say on the radio on the drive home.
The Kings record when going into the 3rd period with a lead is about as outstanding as Michael Phelps in a swimming pool but since just about every one of us saw that the Blues had won, Dallas had won and San Jose was beating the Wild like a redneck does to a swamp woman, you were sweating. You were biting your finely manicured nails.
Fuck you Brandon Dubisky, you Rangers reject – Match Penalty! Hope you’re suspended for the next game and Columbus loses because of it!
I finally got my Staples Center Game 6 melted ice water that had to be flown all the way to China just to be put into a plastic puck. Now, maybe there’s something lost in translation here but on the bottom of the holder it says: CERTIFICATION OF AUTHENTICITY. Am I wrong, or should it have read CERTIFICATE? I got number 237 of 4000 and it will be put in a storage box and stored in my garage for a few decades only to be reopened after my death when my children go, “what’s in this box?” and then they’ll sell it on eBay and buy drugs with the money.
What sucks about Dallas winning tonight is that they face the Blues tomorrow night and we have to root for them because if the Blues win, they’ll be just ONE POINT behind the Kings and San Jose. But this also means Dallas will have TIED Columbus for the 8th and final playoff spot going into their game against the Kings on Sunday. I’m glad I’m on a plane Sunday and I hope its one of those shitty old American Airlines planes that doesn’t have internet yet. Why, oh why can’t Hollywood make a fucking deal with Jet Blue or Virgin already!
Nice meeting you David and David’s girlfriend whose name escapes me. I think it’s Michelle. She was very pretty. But David, you say the “f” word way too much!
