Remember all those years ago when the Los Angeles Kings last won the Stanley Cup? Oh, nostalgia! Gas prices averaged around $3.44 per gallon around the nation. The Summer Olympics were about to go into full swing in London. Obama was President! The world was so different then. Breaking the streak of one consecutive year without winning the Cup is an important achievement meant to be celebrated.
All kidding aside—if you’re a Kings fan, it should be celebrated. It’s good to be the Kings but it’s great to be the 2014 Stanley Cup champs.
