PHILADELPHIA FLYERS VS JEFF CARTER POINTS UPDATE:

 

 

 

LooKING Back:

It turns out the only thing worse than the way the LA Kings played last Saturday against the Nashville Predators was the traffic in Los Angeles as Kings fans made their way to the LA Zoo for Meet The Players night. Thankfully, this isn't the first time Jim Fox has battled LA traffic.

And besides... it wasn't just Jim Fox that had trouble getting to the Zoo on Tuesday night. It was the entire team.

Thankfully, the LA Kings Players arrived at the Zoo and within a few minutes everything was back to normal.

FIRST!

Gorilla Salad, forever.

 

LA TOURISM BOARD:

It's been anything but an upbeat season for the Buffalo Sabres. From the announcement of their brand-new 3rd Jersey, to their goalie attempting to fight a former LA King in pre-season, to their best player getting traded... it's been tough to be a fan of the Sabres in 2013.

That should tell you everything you need to know.

The Sabres come into tonight's game at Staples Center with a 3-13-1 record for a total of 7 points in 17 games. 7 points. 7 points. So we here at The Royal Half went on a mission to find...

5 THINGS THAT HAVE MORE POINTS THAN THE BUFFALO SABRES!!!

  1. Neville Longbottom

Neville Longbottom is a character from the Harry Potter series that is shy, clumsy and introverted. Throughout the books, he was constantly being told by his peers that he wasn't good enough. He's pretty much the Buffalo Sabres of the Harry Potter books.

Best. Sabres 3rd Jerseys. Ever.

And even though Neville Longbottom was a big loser for most of his life...

...he earned 10 points for standing up to his friends, when he tried to stop them from leaving the Gryffindor common room after hours.

And that's 3 more points than the Buffalo Sabres have.

    2. Lindsay Lohan's Drivers License

Via The Express Lane....

Driving Under the Influence: 4 Points (2 for each time caught)

Reckless Driving : 2 Points

Hit and Run (In California and New York): 2 Points

At Fault Collision: 1 Point

Driving on a Suspended License: 2 Points

Running a Red Light: 1 Point

Lying to a Police Officer: Misdemeanor (No driving record points)

Total points: 12

Buffalo Sabres: 7

  3. The Edmonton Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers are in complete turmoil. There are trade winds blowing left and right and fans are fed up with the Oilers culture of losing.

But they still have 3 more points than the Sabres.

  4. Reggie Miller 8 in 8.9 Seconds

In 1995, Reggie Miller had what some people have called one of of the most amazing playoff performances ever.

When he scored 8 points in 8.9 seconds.

The Buffalo Sabres have 7 points in 37 days.

    5. Five Wings from Buffalo Wild Wings on Weight Watchers

How is this not the Sabres 3rd Jersey?

That's right, 5 wings from Buffalo Wild Wings will cost you 15 points on Weight Watchers. As opposed to 1 wing from Buffalo that will cost you $27,000,000 over 6 years.
