Kings Honored at White House

 

It was a big day for Los Angeles sports teams as the Stanley Cup Kings and MLS Champions Galaxy were honored today at 1:45 Eastern at the White House. 

The Kings were positioned to the President's right and the Galaxy on the left as Obama gave a quick recap of both teams championship runs last season. It's hard to tell how closely Obama follows hockey as he flipped through notes and read quotes by Jarrett Stoll and Captain Dustin Brown regarding their playoff run.

The President is an avid Chicago sports fan making today especially sweet for the Kings after last night's 5-4 victory over the Blackhawks. Obama mentioned that the players gave h...

The Kings currently sit ten points back of a suddenly struggling Ducks team with sixteen to play. With two of those remaining games coming against Anaheim, it’s not inconceivable to think that last year’s Stanley Cup Champio...
