There has been a lot of talk the past week or so about how the Los Angeles Kings are not getting the respect that they deserve from the Mainstream Media. So instead of fighting that perception… we here at The Royal Half have decided to embrace it!

Inspired by the multiple media gaffes during the LA Kings 2012 Stanley Cup run… we are going to start collecting those face-palming moments from the LA Kings quest for the 2014 Stanley Cup. The list below starts with the most recent, so if you see a local news anchor mispronounce a players name… or a newspaper that has the wrong teams playing or a t-shirt that is featuring the wrong logo… be sure to Tweet or email them to us!

It’s something we like to call….

Mainstream Media Mishaps™!!!
