ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
 
The NHL Playoffs are fantastic because it seems like each year something new emerges out of nowhere that fans adore and cheer for. During this 2013 post-season, that special new something has never been so easy to spot.
 

 

 
 
The Animated GIF!!!
 
For people who don't know (my parents)... an animated GIF, or Graphics Interchange Format, is an image format used on the World Wide Web that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987. You all remember CompuServe, right?
 
 
Boy the internet sure hasn't changed one bit, has it?
 
Still confused? Watch this video to learn more:
 
 
Seriously, how is there not a restaurant in Silicon Valley called The Address Bar?
 
It's no secret that the popularity of GIFs are on the rise. And nowhere is that more evident than in the world of nerd hockey bloggers. SB Nation does a GIF Recap each night of the playoffs.  CBS's Eye on Hockey does a GIF of the Night. And when Sidney Crosby blew past two former LA Kings defensemen last night... within minutes The Pensblog had it up on the internet as a GIF.
 
 
Miss you, Tom Hickey.
 
Sometimes GIFs are really funny...
 


 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
...but sometimes they remind us of a dark time in our lives.
 

 
 
Presenting.... the Top 5 GIFs of the Kings-Blues Series So Far!!!
 

 
 
1) JONATHAN QUICK
 

 
 
2) DREW DOUGHTY AND DAVID PERRON
 

 

3) BARRET JACKMAN
 
 
 
2) JADEN SCHWARTZ'S UNBREAKABLE STICK
 
 
 
1) JUSTIN WILLIAMS BEING JUSTIN WILLIAMS
 

 
This is also Justin Williams' reaction to being interviewed by Mark Spector.
 
GIFs are so much fun that sometimes they just make me want to dance.
 
 
I can think of one person that might disapprove of Darryl Sutter's behavior.
