Once in a lifetime!

I was offered one of those once in a lifetime opportunites yesterday. My Kings season ticket rep emailed me a chance to be ON the ice during the Luc Robitaille jersey retirement ceremony Saturday night. I guess they were looking for some long time fans to create a 'paparazzi' around him.
Luc Robitaille - the Kings highest scoring left winger and the highest scoring left winger of all time.

He is one of those old time players that will do anything for the sport and its fans. He loves LA and the people here and we love him.

Last season, to get fans back after the lockout, the Kings ticket promotion was 1 autographed Luc Robitaille jersey for every account. I didn't know about this until I had begged my husband for DAYS trying to get him to let me get season tickets. I'm glad he did. I got this jersey.

At Meet the Players last year, I stood in Luc's booth just to get a picture with him and to thank him for signing several thousand jerseys for the fans. I think I was the first person to thank him as he seemed surprised that I stood in line for two hours just to thank him. I could have been hopping from line to line getting other autographs, but I chose his line. I also had him sign his player page in the scrapbook I made for the team. His wife was all excited about the book and thought it was a good idea.

So, if you are a hockey fan, a Kings fan or a Luc fan, find a station carrying the game on Saturday at 7:30 pm PST. Look for me and cheer for Luc. And in true scrapper fashion, I will be on the ice with my camera snapping pictures of this event. They are 'making' me bring a camera. :)


  1. Wow - what a great experience to look forward to. You gotta post some Layouts of this soon, OK?
