I know what you’re thinking: 15 kids? When do they get their own show on TLC?

    It would hurt more if New Jersey hadn’t won multiple cups in the last 15 years.

      How come every time someone from LA does something for the first time, they act like they invented it?

    Looks like an “At your service” ad directly below from the NHL to the Devils too

      Nice one.

      Oh that is just TOO FUNNY!!

      That picture must have been taken after she ate all 15 of them.

    This is incredible.

      Yeah, taking out an ad in the pennysavers is a real groundbreaking achievement.

      • drewsylvania - Jun 18, 2012 at 3:01 PM

        The ad itself: 5/10.

        The whole clipping: 10/10

      • danphipps01 - Jun 18, 2012 at 3:30 PM

        Yep. The joke itself is middling at best, but the picture as a whole? Gold.

    • drewsylvania - Jun 18, 2012 at 2:52 PM

      Indeed. Amusement value: off the charts.

    Just shows the LOW CLASS of LA fans!! I hate Sore Winners! Go back to your party with the midgets & other sideshow freaks!

      Someone is jealous.

    This is akin to a post from Raiders fans. They do something once and they feel like they have done forever. Kings have one title, devils have more. I would support this post more if it was talking about the domination the Kings laid down. I do not watch hockey regularly. The level of domination that occurred in games 1-3 and game 6 was impressive by any sports standards. Even more so as the beat the 1,2, and 3 seeds on the way to the Cup.

    and all the La haters come out of hiding… We WON… get over it… it’s funny end of story. STFU crybabys

    there’s something that people outside of SoCal, specifically LA, need to understand, LA is not where quiet or sensitive people live. Im not saying I would post this or that NJ fans should be happy about it, but take a drive on the 405 and you will see my point. Fans here take the crap thrown our way when our team(s) suck and for sure take our liberties when they win, trash talking and jabbing has and always will be a part of sports, everyone knows that, its what makes hockey so interesting and fun. So please stop acting like sensitive little children when something like this comes up and throw the rock back. La fans can take it.

    • whlskey - Jun 19, 2012 at 2:10 PM

      I’m gonna assume you mean all LA fans, except for Dodger fans, because apparently they couldn’t take or handle appropriately what Bryan Stow said to them.

  9. bleed4philly - Jun 18, 2012 at 11:06 PM

    Raiders/Dodgers/Kings/Lakers all have that same type of fan: sore winner

    • manchestermiracle - Jun 19, 2012 at 10:43 AM

      I can see where you wouldn’t understand what it’s like on the winning side, being from Philly and all….

    • govtminion - Jun 19, 2012 at 11:23 AM

      There are many things I would accuse Raiders fans of, but being ‘sore winners’ isn’t one of them.

      …nor ‘winners’ in general, of course. 😉
