Unfortunately, we had to euthanasia Tioga, our kitty with cancer today. She was doing very well for a number of months but then just went down hill in less than a week. I was with her when she passed and she purred until the very end. She was 13 years old and will be missed.
The Kings held their annual Meet the Players day. Annette and I went out there and meet two players, Patrick O’Sulivan and Brian Boyle. Boyle was extremely engaging after the first few minutes. I’m not sure he knew what to expect. By the time I got to talk to him, he was friendly, signed my jersey, and chat for a couple of seconds. I now have his Manchester jersey *minors* signed.
Since Annette was already in line for Sully, I ended up waiting at the front of the line. I happen to strike up a conversation with Sully’s girlfriend. Very nice woman and Sully will be lucky if she says yes when he proposes. They’ve known each other since they were 16 years old! I asked her what was different about Patrick in NHL v juniors she said that he was known as Hat Trick Patrick in juniors while in NHL he plays more defensively.
We went to the game last night. Prior to the game Alex O. had been my favorite player. After watching him dishing out questionable hits last night including one hit to the head on Dustin Brown I’m reconsidering.
Thankfully, neither player was hurt and the Kings won. The Kings are playing .500 and are keeping themselves in the middle of the pack. With the front loaded home schedule, it is hard to tell how the team will play in March with just a handful of home games. For now, one game at a time.
The Kings went to Anaheim and lost 2-0 to the Ducks. SInce I was at the Last Comic Standing World Tour, I tivoed the game and watched some of it but not all of it. It seemed to be another good effort but they couldn’t score. I don’t thing the Kings could score in a cat house right now.
Alex O. and the Capitals will be in town on Thursday. Looking forward to seeing my favorite player in person ofr the first time. Hope Alex gets a hatter and the Kings score a 4-3 win.
