No, not really.
I didn’t train at all for the LA Kings 5K, which is exactly why I am hurting all over right now. Most of you are smart enough not to follow my example, but just to be clear… I WAS STUPID. I SHOULD HAVE TRAINED.
Anyway, for not being prepared and for this being my first 5k, I think I did OK. I finished in about 28 minutes, which averages to 9 min pace. Obviously, I wasn’t even close to winning the race, but I know that with the right training, I can definitely improve my time for my next 5k.
That’s Henry crossing the finish line. He really didn’t want to run, but I made him 🙂
Why hello, Luongo. So nice of you to show up at an LA Kings event.
This little kid was just a taste of what I would see later that afternoon at the Kings vs Canucks game: A sea of fucking blue jerseys. Where the hell did all these Canucks fans come from???? I’d say that Staples was filled with 70/30 Canucks! Bullshit.
You know what else was bullshit? The officiating. Bad calls on both sides. But the non-call that led to D. Sedin goal pissed me off the most, obviously, since it was the game winning goal. The Kings really couldn’t recover from that, especially Doughty, who just completely went bat shit crazy and got a stupid diving penalty. Good thing the Canucks PP was just as horrible as the Kings PP or else the final score would have been a lot different.
It was a physical game right from the start. Both teams were playing like they had tiger blood and Adonis DNA. Well… except for H. Sedin, who pouted like a little baby after a high stick from Doughty. Look Henrik, suck it up until you’ve had a few pucks to the face like your brother and your old friend Willie Mitchell. They kept replaying this bit on the jumbotron, in slow motion! I totally wish I took a picture. Damnit.

re: the bogus california state “use” tax, it is bullshit. pure bullshit! i was working on my taxes this year and there was crap all over the place asking if i had made any on-line purchases where sales tax hadn’t been collected. the answer was NO. lol. good luck to them trying to track all of the on-line purchases on planet earth. good luck with that.
and please tell me you don’t work for the state board of equalization and/or the irs and that i am going to be your personal project. eeek!
Does anyone have a link to the picture of Henrik pouting? It was one of the greatest things of all time and I would love to show it to the Canucks fans that think their team ISN’T a bunch of pussies
I’ve searched around for a picture!! No luck 😦
