Hockey Fest 09

by Anne

Several teams in the NHL have these big fan-related events to kick off the pre-season with the players, coaches, management, etc.

Of course, the Buffalo Sabres do not.

However, the Los Angeles Kings do!

Since I was not anywhere near California during these festivities, I only have a few pictures to piece together the magic.

I don't care how "real NHL player" he becomes over the next few seasons, he'll always be Dewey

Greener made multiple references in both his Hockey Fest commercials and in this talk back about how he's single.
Greener, calm thyself

Kopi can't believe whatever Greener is laughing at

Kopi is amused, Greener is chuckling, Wayne is enjoying
aaaaand Teddy is engrossed by his bottle of water.
He's a party animal.

My favorite part of this picture is Simmer making that adorable little girl wave
At least Teddy is paying attention.

He looks like he's writing a thoughtful letter on this puck

Pimp Daddy
Head Coach Terry Murray.

On a mostly unrelated note: When I was perusing the Hockey Fest galleries, I noticed the NHL 10 preview screen shots. For some reason two of the shots are the Kings playing the Sabres IN Buffalo and Staffy is close in on goal. All the other shots are Kings home game against Western Conf. opponents. It was odd:

Quickie is stacking the pads against Little Foot

"Derek Roy" is not a reasonable likeness.

Caroline spotted Nathan Gerbe at her place of employment. This means training camp is almost here!! September 12!!

Glossary... Sort of

  • "Ryan Miller Shutout" - A 58 minute, multi-goal shutout lead that is blown when Miller allows one meaningless goal
  • Britney or SabreBritney - Thomas Vanek
  • Butter Snaps - Carolina Hurricanes. Because Butter Snap pretzels, like the Carolina Hurricanes, are disgusting
  • Greener - MATT Greene (LAK)
  • JBG - Jolly Blonde Giant - Tyler Myers

Because it's never not funny

Completely adorable
