Bay Area > LA.
I don’t care for the Los Angeles sports teams. I’m from the Bay Area. That’s where my allegiances are. Even though I live in Los Angeles, I stay true to my roots. If the Lakers lose, good. If the Kings lose, good. If the Angels lose, even better.
With the San Jose Sharks and the Golden State Warriors both in the playoffs facing their Southern California rivals, it’s harder for me to mind my own business about my team because I’m surrounded by these Los Angeles fans.
Even before the playoffs, I am constantly hearing about people talking about the Lakers. Then the Clippers talk started to rise some. I don’t care.
The Sharks are back in the playoffs and will take on the Kings. I went to Game 7 last year between these two and it was a heartbreaker. But I still believe in my Sharks.
They probably aren’t the best team and they haven’t played their best hockey yet. But when it comes to the playoffs, anything goes. Especially with this series against the rival Kings, it is expected to go the distance.
I hope I can get some time to go to one of these games. But with the Warriors-Clippers playoff meeting likely to take place also, I have to save up and figure out which series I want to go to more.
In all honesty, they probably didn’t know it and didn’t think much of it. But now that we know who created it and that he never got compensation, what is the best approach? It’s up to the artist on what they want to see with it, but I do wonder how many more of these cases happen that we just don’t pick up.
Goalie masks are unique in a way because they aren’t required to put just the team logos on it. They can be creative and artists can put whatever they want to the mask. In fact, sometimes the mask has nothing to do with the team, but the design reflects the player.
So with this, it might open up a new way of artist and players in approach to the goalie mask designs. These cases are rare so we might not see it much. But when it does happen, I hope the artist is contacted and properly compensated. They deserve that at least.
NHL ugly sweaters are here for you to buy!
Remember when the NFL ugly sweaters were introduced and it got a lot of attention? Well if you’re a hockey fan, these NHL sweaters might be a better fit for you.
Unfortunately, they only have the sweaters for the Bruins, Blackhawks, Rangers, Red Wings, Flyers and Penguins. It isn’t known if the rest of the league will be included and they are $59.99 each for pre-order.
What do you think? Check the rest of the sweaters right here.
Watch the above video from last night. Go ahead and cry. These things happen more often than not in sports but sometimes we don’t hear the stories. Caught up in athletes getting in DUIs and all the nonsense of contract negotiations and advertising, sometimes a good story like this is missed. So glad that this one has caught national attention.
I am digging this. The design is very accurate to what a Steelers helmet looks like. Aside from the Penguins logo, this is spot on.
I don’t even like either the Kings or Ducks. Both of them are the rivals. But as a hockey fan, attending the Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium was a must for me. I’ve always wanted to go to the Winter Classic games but since those games are never on the West Coast, this is the best option for me. It was actually a great cool night and the entire atmosphere was very unique.
I had arrived at around 5PM, a good 90 minutes before the ceremonies would begin. I got there early knowing that getting into the stadium closer to the start of the game would suck. When arrived there, I saw that there was a fan fest area in one of the parking lots. It didn’t look interesting, so I just went inside.
What was really unique about this stadium was the set up of the field for the game. They had a volleyball court, a stage for KISS and a mini rollerblade rink for kids. Those were all occupied before the game and during the intermissions.
There’s a lot of stuff going on around the rink.
