LOS ANGELES -- Tracey Kenney and Merry Cheers took a selfie standing in front of a barren plaza at L.A. Live, across from Staples Center. They were among hundreds of disappointed Kings fans pouring out of bars and restaurants at the sports and entertainment district Wednesday night.
"We just took a picture of ourselves with this emptiness in the back, showing how we feel in our heart," Cheers said. "An empty party zone reflects the emptiness in our hearts. This is a total 180 [degree turn] of how we were going to be right now. But we're rooting for it.
"We have hope knowing that they're going to bring it back home."
