Memorable moments....

An old friend of the family got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. If anyone knows Stu Nahan, you know he's a total celebrity out here. For those of you who don't know him, he's been on the sports scene forever. He's a huge hockey fan (Kings fan), baseball fan etc. He's done radio and TV for so many years that he just knows EVERYONE! He's done movies (he's the announcer in the Rocky movies, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and more).

I love to read his little one page update in the Kings programs 'Stu Says' just to see what Stu will say about my team. He pretty much calls it like it is.

So, today, he got a star. We hiked up to Hollywood to see the ceremony which was very well done. Luc Robitaille was there. Pat Sajak was there. A lot of people were there to honor Stu.

I took this opportunity to get some contract negotiations in for the kid. Flash forward to 2026, I can hear it now......

"With their first round pick in the 2026 draft, the Los Angeles Kings chose..... (first name???) Weinstock." Thats right. My little hockey player drafted in 2026. :) I couldn't help myself.

Lots of funny stories and good memories.
