As a life-long Kings fan (purple and gold, baby! Triple Crown Line FTW!) I’m used to my boys sitting at or near last place. But it absolutely guts me that most of this season they have been sitting at or near last place . . . behind the goddamn Mighty Ducks. In fact, in tonights game against the goddamn Mighty Ducks, the Kings are reduced to being a “spoiler,” because even in the NHL where more teams make the playoffs than actually start the regular season, the Kings suck so hard they don’t have a chance at the post season this year.
But you know what really grinds my gears? DirecTV is carrying the game on an HD sports channel, but it’s blacked out, forcing me to watch it on Fox Sports West in crappy old not-HD. I understand blackout rules, but shouldn’t HD be exempt? Fox Sports West claims that it’s presented in HD, but I know HD when I see it; I’ve watched lots of HD. HD is a friend of mine, and you, Fox Sports West on DirecTV, are no HD broadcast.
