LAPD on tactical alert.

It’s been reported that three white guys and two white Hispanics joined to do a wave.

Measures are being taken in the tense situation.

I’ll give it another 3 hrs or so before the alcohol and drugs kick into full mode and the riots begin.

Hope the shoe and electronics stores are boarded up solidly.

I’ll give the over/under of 4 1/2 on the number of cars that go up in flames tonight.

Would there be unrest in L.A. for the Kings victory? I thought only the Lakers get that attention from certain people prone to rioting??????

Hockey fans don’t resemble sons of Obama, if he had sons.

I wonder if this is the first time a major league franchise won the championship despite losing a majority of their regular season games.

If any you are affiliated with a church in Los Angeles, I have an idea for a church sign this Sunday:

THE LEADER OF THE KINGS HAS DEFEATED THE DEVILS!

Owing to the Canadian roots of Ice Hockey, they do favor National Health Care....

I actually turned the Radio off... It was everywhere.

Who? What?

Have not a clue nor do I want to ... but it was on every channel.

Must be someone that cares ... kinda like an Obama Speech, I do the same thing, just turn the Radio OFF.

TT

No team named the ‘devils’ should win anything.

Not my sport but I'm happy for the folks who follow ice hockey....congratulations, Kings!

Vin Scully had a good one last night....commenting on the Dodgers/Angels game.

"Well tonight we have both Angels and Devils in town".

Great for the Kings.

Now if we could only keep a football team.

I’ve decided to do my sports fandom based on what city will produce the best riot.

But I can’t tell if that’s because of a win or loss, LOL

That 5 minute power play was devastating.

What made the Devils guy think he was gonna get by with that terrible hit?

Great news!

The only sport I’ve ever cared about is Angels baseball, so I can appreciate waiting for the championship for many decades. Congrats to the Kings and their fans!

That might explain why the Kings won.
