I fully expect every last one of you to laugh at me for this, but this story actually brought tears to my eyes. Los Angeles Kings: Stanley Cup champions? I don't really think it will happen, but if it did, I could die happy then and there. And you think I'm kidding.

The NHL season kicks off tonight. It's been a tough summer without hockey, but with my favorite sport returning tonight and league play in college football heating up, all is well in the sports world in my eyes.
