ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
2 to go.
After 2 games in this series, everyone is talking about a flat, impenetrable surface seen around Los Angeles and Orange County.
Hmm... not quite. But close.
No, with the LA Kings up 2-0 on their nowhere near crosstown rivals Anaheim Ducks... the only thing people are talking about is... billboards?
That's right, someone has anonymously paid for a couple billboards that depict a dead duck and "Go Kings Go." And one is even right on the border of Los Angeles and Orange County. We here at The Royal Half don't know who this mysterious person is... but we have obtained a few more photos of some new billboards that have gone up around town.
Hmm... I might have some idea who paid for this one.
It also looks like other professional sports teams have become involved in this cross-town rivalry.
Well, that's just confusing.
That's more like it.
And finally, I'm ready to come clean. I, The Royal Half, have paid for one of these billboards that you might have seen around Los Angeles and Orange County.
