The Kings Win the 2012 Stanley Cup

The Los Angeles Kings have won the 2012 Stanley Cup; the first time they have accomplished this since the franchise was founded way back in 1967. I decided to head over to Staples Center after I was convinced that I could not jinx their chances, and even though New Jersey scored about two minutes after I headed out, it was not enough to stop the Kings as they skated on to a 6-1 victory.

While I was relatively confident there would be no issues with crowd control, I parked about a good half-mile away (behind LAPD’s staging area) which turned out to be a pretty good thing. As I was walking towards the Staples Center, I noticed the Excalibur Restaurant had a sign out front advertising craft beer, so I stopped in and watched the end of the game with a few dozen enthusiastic fans. When the game ended, I made the short walk to Staples and joined the thousands that were celebrating. It is a good night to be an LA Kings fan. Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and their fans on a great season.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band at Staples Center

I had the opportunity to see Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band at Staples Center last night. It was a great concert. I have been a Bob Seger fan since Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man, which was around 1969. I have seen close to 100 live acts, but for some reason I never made it to a Seger concert. To say that I was looking forward to last night would be an understatement.

The song I was looking forward to hearing performed live was Turn the Page. He waited until almost the end to play it, so I was getting a little anxious when he started playing songs by Little Richard and Tina Turner. However, he played the songs I wanted to hear and came back for two encores, so it was a great night as far as I was concerned. Continue reading

Holiday Fair at Staples Center

When we went to Staples last night, I got spun around and ended up parking by LA Live on 11th Street. To my surprise, they had the street blocked off and an old style carnival set up. I presumed it was some kind of Christmas carnival, but no one that worked there really knew what was going on. Even the security personnel said they had never seen anything like this before and that it had no name that they knew of. Google was of little help, so I think we will call it the GotBaddog Staples Holiday Fair until someone comes up with a better name. These photos are of a few of the rides. I am not sure how long it will be there, so pack up the kids before it is too late. Continue reading
