The Royal Half Up In Your Face!

Myself and Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy are on our way to Staples Center for the Los Angeles Kings home opener. But check out a couple of Royal Half news-worthy items before you sit down to watch the game tonight.

This was from last week, but the good folks at Fantasy Hockey Scouts asked for my thoughts on the upcoming season. Boy, I sure nailed that Scott Parse prediction, right? Yeah, I think last year was my fantasy prediction contract year.

The always hysterical Barry Melrose Rocks asked me to talk about why I hate all things Northern Californian. There is some great work here on teams you love to hate for both the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference.

And The Royal Half is going to be on the radio! Well, the internet radio. The guys over at Blue Line Hockey Chicago have asked me to be a guest around 5:40pm (Pacific Time) to chat about the Kings… while I’m at the home opener festivities! I’ll post the archive once it’s up but you can listen live at SportsTown Chicago.

And finally, just because. Indiana Matt has struck again.


It’s simple. Kill the Thrasher.
