PLAYERS: Tom Hanks
TEAMS: Los Angeles Kings
This is much cuter than the time Madonna was featured on the Kiss Cam and she made out with her over-inflated sense of self worth. The Los Angeles Kings are just one of many pro teams that employ the Kiss Cam during breaks in the action, probably because it’s cheap, fun, and the fans seem to get a kick out of it.  So it only makes sense that when a Hollywood power couple like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are taking in a Kings game, you better make sure you feature them on the Kiss Cam. And they did, at the 53-second mark… You have to love the reaction by Wilson, acting like being shown on the Kiss Cam is the greater than any movie role she’s ever had. Hanks is pretty cool as well, going all in with his kiss, then mouthing the words “smoking hot” as he gestures toward his wife.  See, they’re just like us…only rich, famous and way more attractive.

Video: Tom Hanks, wife on LA Kings kiss cam

One of the highlights of every game in Los Angeles seems to be the kiss-cam. I blame this on the fans, of course… but I digress. At a recent Kings game Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were unable to escape the grasp of the kiss-cam. It happens just after the 50 second mark of the below video. Will Ferrell still owns the LA kiss-cam with THIS GEM. via Puck Daddy Article...

Tom Hanks gets caught on LA Kings kiss cam (Video)

One of the greatest inventions of modern professional sports has to be "kiss cam" which shows off unsuspecting fans and forces them to kiss. During Saturday's LA Kings/Anaheim Ducks tilt, the kiss cam found actor Tom Hanks in the crowd and he decided to pucker up with wife, Rita Wilson:

Lowest Scoring Team

For most of the season the Los Angeles Kings have been the lowest scoring team in the league.  Likely that is what motivated them to trade for Jeff Carter.  Recently they have lost their position as the lowest scoring team in the league.  The Minnesota Wild has even fewer goals per game.  LA has 2.12 goals per game (that is a reduction in their scoring rate since I first wrote...
