Ducks In the Playoffs

With our fellow bloggers to the north wondering what’s going on with the Kings, us Ducks fans down south are getting ready for the NHL playoffs at the pond.

Back in 2003, I got lucky and went to game two of the Stanley Cup at the Pond. For the year Anaheim was a sports Mecca, we had the World Series and the Stanly Cup and I checked off a couple “To Do” list items by attending Game One of the World Series and Game Two of the Stanley Cup. The buzz and the excitement is at least back on the other side of Katella.

On Wednesday morning, Kevin and Bean had Jean Sebastian Gugiure and Kevin ribbed Bean for being a King’s fan. I never though that would happen all of the time I have lived in Southern California. The Kings have the history with Gretzky and Robitaille. The Ducks had Paul Kariya, they brought back Teemu Selanne, united the Niedermayers, and have a new front office staff and owner who care about the city of Anaheim and have instilled a winning attitude in their players. This is no longer the “Mickey Mouse” operation that it used to be under Disney’s ownership. Gugiure even mentioned that the team may unveil a new logo and jersey colors in June. (Anyone know what they look like?)

Tomorrow the Ducks open the playoffs on the road at Calgary, which will no doubt be a tough road trip.
