    i remember back in the transistor radio days hearing them buzz vinny at every home game
    whenever the dodgers reached the postseason back then we'd mute the tv and listen to vin while we watched
    same with chickie and laker games
    kings didn't make the post back then so...

    Listening to every pitch of Sandy's perfect game on the old transistor. Maybe the highlight of my time as a Dodger fan. The best pitcher they ever had at his best and the best PBP guy ever at the top of his game. Gives me chills thinking about it.

    i have vague memories of sandy but i was really young so
    but i remember listening to drysdale's scoreless inning streak
    i remember the last out...
    "a high pop up
    he's 80 feet from the record
    parker's... got it!"

    chills for me as well

    Remember how the streak was extended because the home plate umpire said Giant catcher Dick Dietz didn't try to avoid a pitch that hit him? Ballsy call that is rarely made.

    i remember that well
    deitz was furious
    not sure but i think the ump was either wendlestet or dutch rennert
    vinny "(wendelstet/rennert) saying 'it hit the bat' "

    also regarding dd
    his call of gibby's was the best of all
    i remember initally thinking it was going to be an out
    franklin stubbs crushing one a couple innings earlier that i thought was gone, but died on the track
    the call sounds like dd thought gibby's ball was going to do the same
    and then the genuine excitement in his voice as he realizes it's gone

    Draft strategy has to start shifting to the offensive side. Last 2 drafts used the teams 1st pick on big defensemen. Seems like every draft we buy big guys not fast elusive scorers I get it though there have to be guys available but come on now like you say score some goals!!! I'm calling for Daryl to go.

    I guess I am naive but I thought every player loved Daryl.

    Had to happen.

    Those two helped bring the Kings two more Cup wins then I ever thought I'd see in my lifetime, but there's been too much of a falloff since '14.

    That said, thank you Darryl and Dean.

    Blake named GM and Luc is club president.

    Not so sure about this. Former King greats Dave Taylor and Rogie Vachon failed in the front office.
