I don’t get it. I don’t get how those who follow our L.A. Kings, who eat, breathe and occasionally shit this hockey team on an obsessive but otherwise healthy basis have time to invest into other sports?
I of course cater this question to true L.A. Kings die-hards but here is the deal – I know you do. I know that many of you actually and intensely follow baseball (I can name five teams – Dodgers, Angels, Yankees, Red Sox and….shit, make that four teams), football (Raiders, Rams, Titans?), basketball (my 10% interest became zero when Magic Johnson and Larry Bird stopped playing) and you sprinkle in college sports on top of it.
I mean, how? How the fuck is this possible? When do you have time to do this? I know every player on the L.A. Kings, present and pretty much past going back about 30 years, if someone talks about a specific play that happened during the regular season of a semi-meaningful game, I can probably tell you the players who were on the ice, the period and time left on the clock, I can practically give you a play-by-play of every playoff game, I know the X’s and O’s pretty damn well, I saturate myself in everything and all of it when I am watching it because it is my unfettered passion…so how in the hell can you find the time and energy to bring that passion to more than one sport or, for your truly insane, several.
And fantasy leagues!?
On top of keeping up with all of these sports, some of you nuts actually participate in fantasy sports on top of it!
This is insanity and don’t say “Linsanity” because it took a fucking YEAR for me to figure out what people were talking about and I thought a large portion of the population had some bizarre LISP I had NEVER previously heard about until I learned it was all about a big Asian BASKETBALL PLAYER!!
I listen to fellow Kings fans talking about the Dodgers doing this, a random basketball team doing that, how USC’s big football dick stuck it in to some mid west college’s ass and on and on and I just shake my head and ask myself, “is this seriously the same guy who was holding a conversation with me about the ’87 team and how Bobby Carpenter would have fared in today’s NHL?!” Was he faking it!? WERE YOU FAKING IT!?
So I come to you and would like to know your secrets…and also, for curiosity sake, answer this fucking poll, will you please?
