It Sounds Vaguely Dominatrix-y

The Kings' new slogan is allegedly PRIDE=PASSION=POWER. I didn't like last year's slogan and I'm not a huge fan of this year's either. Since school is starting around the country, I thought I'd help students get back into the swing of things by presenting a multiple choice question.

1) The Kings' new slogan sounds like:

a) The slogan of a Tony Robbins' self-help seminar in Wichita, Kansas

b) Words that flash during a promo for General Hospital, set in between:
1) Sonny trying to show Nicholas a world without violence
2) A passionate embrace between Carly and Jax
3) Sam McCall's final conflict with Diego Alcazar, AKA the text message killer

c) A Black Panther slogan

c) Something Luc Robitaille came up with and no one had the heart to tell him it was stupid

Besides, I'm not sure if I want the team confusing their pride with passion. I can only imagine the uproar when Derek Armstrong celebrates a come-from-behind victory against the Red Wings by french kissing Michal Handzus. Then sodomizing him to show him who's boss.

Hm, was some other team already using the slogan "Fuck you salary floor!"?

Why don't they just say what it is.

"L.A. Kings, We're Still Rebuilding!"

It's close to a line from "Cool Runnings," only they should've use that one instead: "I see pride, I see power, I see a bad ass mother who don't take no crap from no one."

So Kings fans, it may be speculation time.

Does this sound like a move Dean Lombardi would make? As of now, it's unconfirmed and an unnamed team, but at least it's something happening in August.

Hmm, maybe never mind. Apparently the Kings don't have their own 3rd round pick for next year (strangely it was given away in the Cloutier-from-Vancouver trade oh so many moons ago).

Via Mirtle:

Off the top of my head, teams that could potentially pull this off include St. Louis, Toronto, Montreal, Columbus, the Islanders, Phoenix and Atlanta. The Kings would need to reacquire their third-round pick to take part.

Carry on, PassionPride.

Yeah, I looked it up and it goes like this:

-Kings trade 3rd to Vancouver for Dan Cloutier

-Vancouver trades Kings' 3rd for Steve Bernier

Funny how Dan Cloutier keeps coming back.

Luc Robitaille = Black Panther?!? Crap, that doesn't sound so good.

Of course, it explains why the salary floor is so far away: the Kings front office is otherwise occupied...

Nah, it's not that bad. Just needs a cool font.

Dear Webmaster,

Hi, my name is Jon and I work for an online promotion company. I am interested in buying text ad space on your site (http://battleofcalifornia.blogspot.com/) for one of my clients - a well established, online gaming company.

Please let me know if you are interested, and I will send you more details.


I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jon Peter

Hehe, Peter.

Three beautiful things about Jon Peter's request for advertising:

a) Oblivious to the fact that we have zero advertising on this site.

b) He picks the Dominatrix post as one that's worth talking about ads.

c) Probably best, he offers zero ways to contact him. He doesn't mention his site name or URL (rather he offers our own), but does somehow look forward to hearing from us.

Uh, don't hold your breath, J. Peter(man).

Now this is a seriously bad place to leave this comment, but Selanne's coming back. He just told a Finnish newspaper that it's taking so long only because the Ducks have to make room for him under the cap. He says that it should be cleared by training camp (Sept. 11)

He has been practising hard, is in top shape and returns to America on Sunday.

Totally useful link in Finnish:

Great news, Marl! It's a totally great place to break the news.

Finntastic!

Hockey teams have slogans?Hmmm only in LA.

Sleek: Sure it was a great place as in BoC, but I'm not so sure about this Dominatrix post ;)

I prefer Tampa Bay's "Safe is Death."

Or Edmonton's "Eight Place or Bust."

Or Montreal's "Nineteen Sixty-Seven, Motherfuckers. Take That."
