It Was 24 Years Ago Today…

No… Sgt Pepper didn’t teach the band to play… 24 years ago today people across the country stood up and screamed “LOS ANGELES HAS A HOCKEY TEAM?!?”

And my life was changed forever.

I have an autograph from Wayne Gretzky where he’s wearing the “A.”
I’m such a hipster.

Wayne Gretzky did so much for the sport of hockey in Los Angeles.

Well… except one thing.

Now, if you’ll excuse me… I will be watching NHL Network all day long.
