Excuse me?  What does this headline: Mets acquire Putz in 3-team, 12-player deal

So the Kings are shuffling off to Buffalo.   The Kings are only 3-6-0 on the road and need to pick it up.  They are one point out of the 8th spot so a win, even in OT/SO, will be great.   Go Kings Go

How about that?  The Kings are sticking around for the playoff race and current cling lightly to the 8th and final place with 4 other teams.   The Kings played an impressive game against San Jose but lost in the SO.  Wins against Wild and a few other teams were good.  Let’s hope for a win against the Rangers tonight.

Go Kings Go.

My question is what kids of mixed race went to this party?  I call BS on this statement.
