Above and Beyond

Today is Wayne Gretzky's birthday. It's always a special day in The Royal Half Household because if it wasn't for Wayne Gretzky… there would be no Royal Half. And today KingsVision has given us the greatest gift of all!

Wayne Gretzky's Above and Beyond was daily viewing when I was a kid. I'm dead serious. I watched that tape on a loop. In fact, I still have it today in my VHS hockey library.

Now all I need is a VHS player.
Mainly so I can watch the Guns N' Roses videos.

Spend your Saturday relaxing and watching the Above and Beyond video. It should bring back some great LA Kings memories. You know… when they didn't win the Stanley Cup. Remember those days??? Nope, me either.

Also, don't forget that the TRH GAMEDAY previews are now being featured at LAKings.com. We've made it to our fourth game! And I'm pretty sure the preview of the LA Kings vs the Phoenix Coyotes will be the one that will get us kicked off forever. Check it out here.
