Anze Kopitar Enjoys a True Breakfast of Champions

When Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings made his NHL debut in 2006, he was the first player from Slovenia to play in the league.

Kopitar made history again on Friday when the Stanley Cup made its first trip to Slovenia as the star winger returned to his home country.

And yes, that’s Kopitar enjoying cereal from the Stanley Cup.

Breakfast of champions.

Steve Nash Traded to the LA Kings?

How big is hockey in Canada?

So big that Toronto’s CablePulse24 was under the impression that Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash was getting traded to the Los Angeles Kings — not the Los Angeles Lakers.

For the record, Nash will play alongside Kobe Bryant — not Anze Kopitar.

Newborn Steals Show During LAT Stanley Cup Visit

Lord’s Stanley Cup made a stop at the Los Angeles Times office on Thursday and this adorable newborn stole the show.

Let’s hope it didn’t leave a little surprise for the Cup handlers.

LA Kings Fan Takes Out Ad in The Star-Ledger

Just in case you forgot who won the Stanley Cup last week, a bold Los Angeles Kings fan took out this classified ad in The Star-Ledger in New Jersey.

This is what happens when you have a 45-year drought. You do stuff like this.

One Last Kings Goof from the Local Media

The Lakers parade?

Really?

Force of habit?

This marks the end of an embarrassing few weeks from the local TV media.

You have four months to study up on hockey before the 2012-13 season starts in October.

Jonathan Quick Fires F-Bombs Past the Censor Goalie

I had the pleasure of attending the Los Angeles Kings rally this afternoon at Staples Center where a highly intoxicated Jonathan Quick gave an epic speech that featured multiple F-bombs.

Clearly nobody learned from Dustin Brown‘s potty mouth from Monday night, eh?

Poor KCAL, who happened to cut live just prior to Quick’s outburst.

(Insert the standard “if you’re offended” apology here.)

Vin Scully Calls in to Surprise Bob Miller on ESPN 710

For years, Los Angeles Kings broadcaster Bob Miller was the odd man out when it came to championship rings compared to his peers in Chick Hearn (nine) and Vin Scully (six).

That’s why Scully made sure he publicly congratulated his close friend by calling into ESPN 710 on Tuesday and welcoming him to the championship ring club.

And if you wondered how Miller would have called the final seconds of Game 6, ESPN’s Arash Markazi has the audio:

Bob Miller Gets His Hands on the Stanley Cup

In his 39th season as the “Voice of the Kings,” Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller finally got the chance to lift the Stanley Cup.

Captain Dustin Brown presented the 73-year-old with the trophy at the postgame party.

NBC Sports Flubs LA Kings Merchandise Email

Silly of me to think that after winning the 2012 Stanley Cup, the Los Angeles Kings would actually be referred to as the Los Angeles Kings.

Nope.

The latest flub during this two-month playoff run comes to us from NBC Sports, which sent out their Stanley Cup merchandise email with the subject line of “Mavs Win!”

Cut. Copy. Paste. Fail.

Dustin Brown Wins Stanley Cup, Drops F-Bomb

Ahhh, the joys of live television.

Fresh off a 6-1 victory and the first Stanley Cup in the 45-year history of the Los Angeles Kings, captain Dustin Brown dropped an F-bomb in his postgame interview with NBC’s Pierre McGuire.

It’s a miracle this kind of thing doesn’t happen more often. Seriously.

More LA Kings coverage to come on FishbowlLA leading up to Thursday’s parade and championship rally.
