So I go away for a couple days to enjoy some excellent skiing and what do I miss?

The single greatest moment of LA Kings-based homo-eroticism since this.

TOP 3 TWEETS I WOULD HAVE WRITTEN HAD I SEEN THIS INSTEAD OF SKIING

1) With the way that Darryl Sutter literally manhandles the players on the bench,
why is anyone surprised that Drew Doughty grabbed Jarret Stoll's **** after a goal?

2) I know that Darryl Sutter wanted to create a new identity for the Kings,
but Drew Doughty grabbing Jarret Stoll's **** after a goal may not be it.

3) Obviously, Terry Murray was a homophobe.

This has been an amazing year at The Royal Half. We've had over 300,000 page views the past 12 months, which I think is nearly 299,999 more page views than we've had the last 3 years. Thanks to all of the great fans that comment, tweet, send me emails with awesome photos and videos, or those that just lurk and laugh or curse. Happy New Year to you all and Go Kings Go!!!
