You know… I really appreciate the valuable feedback that my dedicated readers give me on a constant basis…

Well, thanks at least for the compliment at the end!

Actually, this reader brings up some great points. Don't forget, because of our partnership with the Los Angeles Kings this season… our Gameday Previews are exclusive to So we've had a little less content on The Royal Half this season than in the past.  I've created a sidebar on the right that links to all the Gameday posts at so you'll never miss a dumb joke or stupid screengrab. But I get it… you readers are frustrated. So instead of some lazy pod casts or a feature by another blogger that I think is funny… 

Let's give away some T-Shirts, huh boys?

The rules are simple… just guess the exact time and period that two-time Stanley Cup Champion, Dustin Penner, scores his 1st point of the season today against the St. Louis Blues… and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe.

@TheMouthLAKings takes a break from drinking to wear
his favorite shirt that is a conversation starter with the ladies. 

Now remember… hockey is played with a clock that counts down from 20:00… so your prediction for PennerPoint™ has to match the time from the official box score.

Using this screenshot, the goal is scored at 13:08 of the first period. NOT 6:52 of the first.

You can put your predictions in the comments below or reply to me on Twitter with #PennerPoint. You MUST use the hashtag #PennerPoint to be eligible. Good luck! Entries end at 5:00pm Pacific Time today!
