The Giving Season

What a great weekend… to be in Big Bear. The weather was fantastic as was the skiing. What could possibly ruin this great time? Why Los Angeles Kings hockey, that’s what.

We are heading back to LA in a few hours. It seems like the Los Angeles Kings were in the holiday spirit over the weekend. The Buffalo Sabres gave the Kings a full out ass-whopping (I didn’t watch this game but sounds like I didn’t miss much). And yesterday the Kings almost gave their fans something to be excited about… before giving up 2 late goals and losing 6-4. (I did get to watch this one… on mute).

Oh and one final gift… it looks like Jason LaBarbera might have given up the starting goaltender position once more this year… this time to youngster Jonathan Quick.
