GO KINGS GO!!!!
Tonight is GAME 4, and I can hardly contain my joy. We are up 3 game to 0. Three games to zero!!!! WooHoo!!! I can barely contain myself.
Okay... I know I shouldn't put the cart before the horse. So, take a deep breadth, stay calm and don't celebrate before it's time. You don't win anything for 3 wins. It takes 4 to finish the series, and as I've heard numerous times, "the 4th one is the hardest."
Wooooo! I've been telling myself that nearly every hour since Monday evening. Really. I feel like that character on SNL who stares in the mirror saying, " I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me." I need that constant reassurance that this is no time to party, and the Kings still have a long way to go.
Anyway, I was at Game 3 on Monday and only took a couple of photos. I was planning on taking more, but that went out the window as soon as I got to my seats. After all, it was game time and it is my responsibility to get geared up ready to root for my boys. There is no time to point and shoot. There is only time to watch and cheer.
I'll try to take more photos tonight, if I can. I expect it to be louder than Monday, and if things go our way I suspect I'll be hanging around downtown LA for hours. BTW, if you happen to be at the game feel free to come on over to Section 315. I'm the short, goatee bearded, Filipino dude just a few rows above the concourse opening. You can't miss me.
Here is a view of the LA Live concourse in front of the Staples Center. There were a ton of people there. Below is the pristine ice with the Stanley Cup Final painted on it.
One little bit of news, Upper Deck will be giving out 20,000 sets of 6 LA Kings Stanley Cup Finals hockey cards. Everyone gets one. Below is an example of one of the cards in the set.
