Off The Post: Super Bowl Edition

by Deborah Lew / Los Angeles Kings
Editor’s Note: Throughout the season, staff writer Deborah Lew will boldly seek to satisfy the burning curiosity of fans by using current events and thought-provoking creativity to get a comprehensive off-the-ice look at the boys who’ve captured our hearts and our attention span 82+ nights every year. Each edition will feature two questions: 1) The “Shot,” which will relate to the player giving the answer; and 2) The “Pass,” which will ask the player to name a teammate. Keep checking back for new exciting editions of “Off the Post!”

Fill up your coolers, unpack that new flat screen and ready your cash and betting squares – the biggest American sporting event of the year is just around the corner…and the Kings are perfectly fine with the fact that it has nothing to do with them or their professional sport.

Super Bowl XLVI will be watched by the Kings, likely at some restaurant in Tampa Bay, where the team will enjoy a day off after flying across the country to play two back-to-back games. 

Regardless of their home country, the players have developed an interest in American football, as evidenced by the fact that not one of them showed any hesitation when asked about their Super Bowl pick.
