ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
 
There has been one voice conspicuously absent from this Los Angeles Kings-St. Louis Blues 1st round playoff series.
 
 
Sup.
 
That's right, St. Louis Blues SuperFan™ Jon Hamm has been all but silent during this playoff series. In fact, on April 29th, the eve before the start of this Blues-Kings matchup... Jon Hamm appeared on The Daily Show and talked about... the St. Louis Cardinals?

Even with the Blues up 2-0 in this series just a few days ago, Jon Hamm was nowhere to be found. And after Monday night's game, in which the LA Kings tied the series at 2-2... I have to imagine Jon Hamm reacted something like this:
 
 
So The Royal Half Investigative Team™ did some research... and we found out that during this 1st Round Series, St. Louis Blues SuperFan™ Jon Hamm... went to the one place in the world that could care less about hockey.
 
 
Close.
 
 
Nailed it.
 
That's right, Jon Hamm is in India. Filming a movie about... wait for it.... baseball.
 
Yeah, right... like they have Twitter in India.
Or even cameraphones for that matter.
 
 
Well, I'm sure that where ever in the world Jon Hamm is... he's supporting his hometown team that he loves so much, right? RIGHT?!?
 
Whoops.
 
Let's take a closer look, shall we?
 
 
Hmm... still not seeing it.
 
 
Closer still.
 
 
I wish there was some way to visually represent what St. Louis Blues fans are feeling right now.
 
 
That's right... St. Louis Blues SuperFan™ Jon Hamm traveled halfway around the world to show his support for the worst LA-based sports team that was in the playoffs. I'm just glad that the Los Angeles Kings don't have to deal with bandwagon celebrity fans like the St. Louis Blues have to.
