If this was 2012, Friday’s game 5 would be game 6 – coming off a road loss where we hit posts and, though we played damn well, the other team somehow won.
Every game this series has been the same. Slow starts in the first period built up to L.A.’s dominance. As for Friday, what are we to believe may happen?
Do you know?
That’s not our job. Our job is to chant, yell and scream support, to make Staples Center loud and wild, an assault on the senses, where our warriors beam with pride at the savage adoration and we drown the other team in irrelevance.
Scream like Surly. Chant like him. Pick a fight or two with opposing fans like me.
No matter what your style, raise the volume because I want and expect the energy within Staples Center to be palpable.
You don’t do it for yourself. You do it for something greater.
Do not forget for what we play.
The Cup raised over head symbolizes it.
The rings engrave it.
That which we wear reminds us of it.
But it is far greater than all of that.
It is not for ego, or bragging rights. It cannot be erased. It will not be forgotten.
It is glory.
Let Friday be glorious for our L.A. Kings, fans and each of us bear witness.
