Land of Fame

“I hopped off the plane at L.A.X
With a dream and my cardigan
Welcome to the land of fame excess (whoa), am I gonna fit in?” – Miley Cyrus
Kings
When it comes to sports, L.A. fans might be dissapointed in some areas this year, but hockey isn’t one of them! The Los Angeles Kings really stepped their game up and represented for their city by winning the Stanley Cup championship.
 According to Bleacher Report, “The Kings were sick of watching their fellow local teams have all these championship parades. The wait is over now. The Stanley Cup will spend the summer in Southern California for a long overdue tan. More importantly, this could be the start of a healthy relationship between hockey and Los Angeles. The city is the second-largest media market in America and they love winners. Now that the Kings are winners, the people of Los Angeles—who always have plenty of other options in their city than to sit and watch a hockey game—have a bond that can never be broken with their hockey team.” After winning this championship for the first time in 45 years, Anze Kopitar (forward for the Kings) said “It’s too much fun not to win it again, so let’s go get it.” It will be interesting to see how things play out for the L.A. Kings as well as the L.A. sports fans. The Kings certainly seem to fit in now!
