  19. Robert Torres says:

    Hey Mayor,

    I’ve been a loyal reader of yours for quite some time. The amount of content you had during the lockout was above and above what anyone else had. I greatly appreciate your efforts and look forward to all that you do.


  20. Hockey is back! Looking forward to several Doughty bans for his Jays lids. With all of their offseason moves and the NHL season running later into baseball season, he’s bound to be more annoying about his beloved Jays.

  21. Jessica Flarida says:

    Jonathan Quick!!!

  22. Miriam Veloz says:

    I’d love to take my lil girl Bella (2 yrs old) so she can meet Doughty! Go kings Go! We are the defending Stanley Cup Champs! Boy it feels good to say that

  23. Can’t wait to get back inside SC! There is nothing like pulling back the curtain, getting that first view of our ice and taking in a big breath and smelling the ice for the first time. And this year, I’ll be smelling the ice of our Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings!

  24. I want to meet Jonathan Bernier(*^_^*)
    GO Kings GO! Go Mayor Go!

  25. martin sobelman says:

    Coming fromback a Reigncouple season ticketticket holder. I would just simply love to go.

    John I truly feel you are the best sports blogger, no one reports on the LA Kings best and you keep your readers informed and up to date on what’s going on with our favorite players! During the lockout I really enjoyed reading and viewing your interviews it was awesome, the best is yet to come! Thank You, Diane

  28. My son says he really wants to meet Brownie and Penner

  29. Would love to meet Drew Doughty!
    Thanks for this opportunity! 🙂

  30. My son and I would enjoy meeting Quick. He just started skating and wants to play goalie.
    Thanks Mayor

  31. Last year I got to meet Mike Richards. I had my Richards Flyers Winter Classic jersey hidden inside my Richards Kings jersey. I asked if he still signed Flyers stuff and he said, “of course” when I said to look inside he laughed and said, “stealth style!” but Bailey spotted it and tried to steal it. Mike helped me out though. In response to your question of who I’d most like to meet question I’d say Jeff Carter because I’ve already met Richie. I’ve followed the Kings and Flyers for so long that last year seeing those guys back on the same team and seeing them win the cup together was extra awesome.

  32. Jason Sylvester says:

    Jonathan Quick

  33. Kat Posell says:

    I would like to meet Dustin Penner. He went through a lot of adversity in his personal life but came back stronger than ever.

  34. Christina Gonzalez says:

    Stoll! He’s the backbone of our D and always throwing his body around to kill a power play!

  46. josh montes says:

    a few minutes before the game 4 vs. new jersey, my sister and I spotted Kyle Clifford walking down figueroa st. with his mother and girlfriend. Not one person noticed him out of uniform, my sister and I were too shy to go up and ask for a picture. I ran up next to him and gave him knuckles, and he smirked back. We finished walking down figueroa st. behind him. It would be an honor to meet him and share the story again!

He’s a class act, a funny guy (his tweets are great!) and has the potentional to be a reliable top six forward. How he responded to his multiple off ice controversies last season was great and classy as well. To meet Dustin Penner would be a great experience.
