As you know I am Canadian.
Back home hockey is a religion. I am not kidding. We HAVE to love hockey.
And I do.
Growing up we had one TV in the house and on every Saturday night "La Soiree du Hockey" (Hockey Night in Canada) was what was on. The Montreal HABS was our team until we had our Quebec Nordiques join the league for several years.
Now that I live here, the home team are the Los Angeles Kings.
I went to see them a couple of times when Luc Robitaille was still playing.
I never thought of LA as a hockey town...I am pretty sure nobody did.
But tonight....tonight it sure is.
History has been made.
I love those kind of sports moments.
Big ones, with facts and first times
First Cup in 44 years.
First 8th seeded team to win the Stanley Cup.
I watched the game tonight with my kids.
Did you hear me scream??!!! :) It was a shower of goals!!!
Guess where my husband was during that game....in a sports bar...
in NEW JERSEY! HA HA!!
I called a few times.....it sounded like dead town there....I dared him to stand up on a chair and shout "Go Kings!" ..but he did not bite....booo hooo!
So Congrats to THE LOS ANGELES KINGS!!!
What a ride!
This guy was a superstar! (Jonathan Quick, Goalie)
Simon Gagne, a French Canadian like me.
He is actually from my hometown of Sainte-Foy!
and Luuuuuuuuuuuc!!!!! The great Luc Robitaille (another French Canadian) who is now
The Kings President.
Tomorrow I will go get the kids some Stanley Cup Champ t-shirts....they will be wearing that to arrive in Quebec next week!!! That is going to be funny!!!
