I won't bother going into much detail about how poorly the Kings played. Suffice to say, it was uninspired. My only regret, is that we never really got to hear the hometown Kings crowd roar. If they only scored once, I'd be a much happier camper.
Now, on to my photos from Dodger Stadium. Click any pic to embiggen.
These next few photos are from the pregame festivities in the parking lot.
I saw this guy just hanging around. Is this guy trying out to be the Kings mascot. Thankfully, we already have one.
Some Kings Ice Girls.
This might have been the coolest thing at the pregame festival. I saw it too late, and didn't want to wait in line for it since I was heading my way to my seat.
Just a beautiful sight. Notice the construction. They are far from finishing the upgrades.
I am now in my seat. I'm up in the Top Deck, and the views are absolutely incredible. I was worried I'd be too far away to see anything.
Nope, far from it.
My view was just fine. I kept telling my season ticket buddy that we aren't that far from where our Kings seats are. We even might be a little closer. He told me I was crazy.
Here, the tykes are on the floor hockey field for warm-ups.
Then, the big kids go out for their pregame warm-ups.
Soon afterwards, KISS comes out to both entertain and amuse the crowd. So much smoke!
The USC Marching Band serenades the players as they walk to the ice.
The National Anthem.
Here's a pic of the second period puck drop.
And, it's over. The Kings lose 3 to 0. Strangely, I am both disappointed and pleasantly surprised.
What a great evening; as conflicting as it was.
