I met up with my hermano and his friends at around 6th and Figueroa a couple hours before the parade started. A bunch of Kings fans were already lined up and as we walked down a couple blocks I started noticing jersey foul after jersey foul. Since there wasn't much else to photograph, besides bored-looking LAPD officers, I decided to photograph as many jersey fouls as possible as we made our trek down Fig to LA Live.
This first photo isn't exactly a jersey foul, but the first non-Kings jersey I spotted. Dude, seriously? A Blackhawks jersey? To a Kings Stanley Cup parade? Loser.
Again, this next one is not quite a jersey foul, but it did stop me in tracks.
Ok, so maybe I shouldn't have labeled this post "Jersey Fouls", but I had to stop and take a photo of this "vintage" jacket.
Ok folks, our first real jersey foul and there are two in one photo!! I was really excited to take this photo:
With this next photo, I assume the owner is referring to Kyle Clifford because he is kind of a beast, but I'm not 100% sure since I didn't have the courage to ask her since I was worried she would turn into an animal:
Michael Cammalleri wore #13 and I most definitely would not describe him as an animal.
Here's another two-fer, but one is a jersey foul and the other is a vintage jersey (although I admit I had to look it up).
Eddie Joyal was a member of the Los Angeles Kings between 1967 and 1972, so shame on me for not knowing my LA Kings history before I was born. But seriously, that's a pretty rare jersey to be seen in LA.
I don't know what's going on here. I assume it's a surname....or his girlfriend's name. Pretty lame without a doubt though.
I saw this "King's Cup" t-shirt a couple times and I'm convinced it's an apostrophe fail. Sure, you could say it's "Dwight King's Cup", but it's not the "King's Cup", it's the "Kings' Cup", as in the "Los Angeles Kings' Cup". I don't think this is an official NHL licensed merchandise:
Why would you wear this shirt?
The next two photos are of the same guy. First up is his tattoo on the back of his calf.
But nice purse, bro.
Good times, Kings fans! Thanks for keeping me entertained during the 2-hour plus wait for the parade. Let's do it again soon! :)
