LOS ANGELES — Since Philip Anschutz became the majority owner of the Los Angeles Kings back in October 1995, the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), the entertainment conglomerate-portion of Anschutz’ empire that the Kings now fall under, has been viewed by a large swath of fans with disdain, deep-seated mistrust, and even blatant hatred.

In fact, so vehement was the distrust that it might have made people wonder if the face of AEG, Kings Chief Executive Officer and Governor Tim Leiweke, wears body armor.

Some of the distrust was rooted in the Kings’ long history of mediocrity, or worse, not to mention trade and amateur draft histories that, except for a handful of notable exceptions, were so riddled with huge blunders that they could be the punch line for many jokes.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — As it has been for the players, coaches, management, and staff of the Los Angeles Kings, this summer has also been one celebration with the Stanley Cup after another for the team’s broadcasters, including television color commentator Jim Fox.

“It has been crazy, crazy, crazy,” Fox told Frozen Royalty during an exclusive interview. “Crazy-good, though. Everything has been great. Most everything has been around the Stanley Cup. I think I’ve had two days off since the beginning of the playoffs, but as I look back on it, it’s been tons of fun.” Read more of this post

LOS ANGELES — Since the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in the 45-year history of the franchise on June 11, 2012, the storied trophy has been on a whirlwind tour.

From Kings team/staff parties that same night, to the Championship Parade and Rally on June 14, to Las Vegas, Venice Beach, back to Las Vegas for the National Hockey League Awards, to Pittsburgh for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, back to Southern California’s Hermosa Beach, a party hosted by Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller…you get the idea.

The Stanley Cup will continue to have a heavy travel schedule for the rest of the summer. But odds are that it will not have a more meaningful stop than it did on June 28, when it lifted the Read more of this post
