Most of you probably know that we’re huge hockey fans. I love my Los Angeles Kings, and have ever since I was a little girl. My sweetheart on the other hand likes “that new team” in Vegas.
Back in the ’70s, my dad would take us to the Fabulous Forum to see them play. Rogie Vachon and the Triple Crown Line were my childhood favorites. Tickets were so cheap, we’d go a couple nights a week to see them play.
I never did see Wayne Gretzky play, and it was only in 2017 that I finally went to a game at Staples Center. I’ve got Robin to thank for that. We saw back to back LA Kings/Las Vegas Golden Knights games, one in LA and the other in Vegas. The Kings beat the Knights both games. I was worried that he wouldn’t take me to another game at that point! The Knights made up for it in the playoffs though. I’ll leave it at that.
Anyways, my hockey apparel inventory seems to have grown in the past year or so – yay me! My Jonathan Quick #32 jersey is a cherished item in my closet. Most of the LA Kings live not too far from where I grew up. I keep joking that I’m going to track Quickie down in the South Bay and get him to sign my jersey.
Did I mention that I love my LA Kings? Between Fanatics and Fans Edge, we’ve found some great deals on hockey apparel. Sochi even has an LA Kings dog collar – it’s great quality and cheaper than the collars at the local pet store. Go figure. (Go Kings!) She needs the matching dog leash to go with it now. Sochi’s a Kings fan you know… just don’t tell her daddy.
Check out some of this awesome hockey stuff! My next purchase is going to be a Dustin Brown jersey. 🙂
And by the way, I do cheer for the Vegas Golden Knights on occasion too. I’m a huge fan of “cousin” Marc-Andre Fleury!
