Apologies! I have been stupid busy with life—work, being sick (twice), prepping for potentially significant life changes (which has proven to be a lot more difficult than I had projected). I haven’t been able to catch broadcasts for hockey games I’m not in attendance, nonetheless keeping up-to-date via Twitter. Lately, when I get home, I crash like an old lady, or I’m working on freelance and personal projects until two in the morning. If I’m feeling burnt-out, I stream a PS4 game (as my friends…Continue Reading “Live with a Side of OMFG”

Micro-vacation to Vancouver… is right around the corner! I have one more Kings game I’m attending before I fly out. We’ll be playing against the Sabres. I mixed it up with the Blue Jackets game the weekend following my trip. Nonetheless, I have a very busy October followed by a pretty mellow November and December. It’ll be nice downtime while I ready myself for a much more hectic and vital 2nd-half of the season. I was looking at my calendar, and I realized that I…Continue Reading “12 Days ’Til Vancouver | Hockey You Get it”

Okay, so, I’m not feeling great, but I figured I’d blog something hockey-related. The Kings are currently on their Canadian road trip and… Today we lost against the Winnipeg Jets on their home turf. Right as I was about to start typing, this IG post popped up, and Tyler did a good job summarizing how I’ve felt about the team’s offensive issues thus far. Well, actually, defense too. We’re not doing so well keeping the puck out of our zone. "[Jack's] kept us in both…Continue Reading “Hockey Rambling | Regular NHL Season is On”

First and foremost… Yay, the Pens won their opening night against the Stanley Cup Champs! Amazing fucking job, Letang! My boi! Much respect to the Caps though, primarily Ovie. When you beat the defending Stanley Cup Champs in your home opener 💯 pic.twitter.com/EYjNwmHQtZ — Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) October 5, 2018 Now that’s out of the way, it’s sports season in Los Angeles. You know what that means? Tonight there was a Dodgers v Braves game at the Dodger Stadium, so naturally, my commute became super…Continue Reading “LA Sportsageddon 2019”

Interestingly, while I was preparing on what to pack for my trip up to Vancouver for the Nucks v Pens game, making my task lists and all that Type-A personality nonsense, it hit me:   Wait—I’m not traveling to a city in California. … I haven’t checked the weather up there. I should prooooobably do that.   … We aren’t in Kansas anymore, Toto. Ah, right. I actually need to wear boots and boot socks, stock up on layers, and all that waterproof goodness. A…Continue Reading “A Month Out”

I want to state this: going by yourself to a game isn’t weird. As long as you’re not the one being weird. Don’t be weird. Here I am buying a single-seat season ticket for the LA Kings and booking a trip to Vancouver alone, and the plans continue. I’m very much looking forward to meeting my section neighbors for the year. It’s not weird. Humans are social creatures, there’s the obvious expectation (or even obligation) to be non-stop extroverted. Surprise: we’re not all like that….Continue Reading “Going Solo to a Hockey (or any sport) Game”
