As is tradition here at Battle of California whenever two teams from the best state in the union face off against each other, today's game posts have a theme behind them. Today's discusses some team players with fun names.
How cute. Just another example of how the LA Kings have to copy every damn thing the Anaheim Ducks do.
First Anaheim won the Cup, then LA won the Cup. Anaheim acquired a defenseman named after a perennial Simspons background character in Ben Lovejoy, LA signed Jamie McBain. Come up with your own strategy, Los Angeles!
At any rate, Reverend Lovejoy is a much better Simpsons character anyway.
Plus, you know, him having the whole power of God thing to back him up is pretty impressive.
What's McBain got going for him? Oh, that one overused meme? Cool story, bro.
Plus, McBain is supposed to be a bad-ass action hero, but that's kind of horseshit. You want action?
That's fucking action. McBain is just a character played by actor Ranier Wolfcastle, he's never had to do anything heroic, with his cush Hollywood job. Lovejoy is out saving lives.
So yeah, Lovejoy forever.
Kings (8 - 7) @ Ducks (10 - 6)

Half of Anaheim's team is either sick with ebola, or broken in some other way. Stupid LA wins 3-1.
