This coming Friday you can have a chance to get a picture with The Cup. Rich Hammond at the Kings Insider Blog has the information.
The trophy, along with Bailey and the Kings’ Ice Crew, will be at a Sports Chalet store in West Los Angeles (11801 West Olympic Blvd.) on Friday from 6-7 p.m. It’s a free event, but you must bring your own camera, and there is only one photo per person.Go to this link for more information.
An hour doesn't seem like a lot of time to handle all photo request. If the line is too long I wouldn't worry. I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to get close to The Cup.
And yes, the photo above is of me with the Cup. This was taken at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto some 8-9 years ago. I was in town for a wedding and made sure to take in a Blue Jays game and this Hall. As I look back at this picture I notice that I look rather stiff. It's like I was afraid to get near it, let alone touch it. Next time around I plan to get real close and smile real big.
