LOS ANGELES — A couple of days have passed since the Los Angeles Kings celebrated their 2014 Stanley Cup Championship with their fans during a parade down Figueroa Street in Downtown Los Angeles, turning west onto Chick Hearn Court, between Staples Center and L.A. Live, followed by a rally inside Staples Center.

Now that the initial excitement has died down just a bit, a look back at the rally indicates that it was more than a celebration. To be sure, the Kings celebrated their victory and expressed their gratitude. But they also used the event to send a few messages as well.

After the Hall-of-Fame “Voice of the Kings,” Bob Miller opened the festivities, Eric Garcetti, Mayor, City of Los Angeles, got the rally off to a raucous start with a surprising conclusion to his remarks.

LOS ANGELES — On March 14, 2013, the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), the international real estate, retail, and entertainment conglomerate that owns the Los Angeles Kings, dropped a bombshell when they announced that they were no longer up for sale.

But what many considered to be a bombshell with an even greater payload was a part of that same announcement: that Tim Leiweke, the President and Chief Executive Officer of AEG since 1996, would be, “…leaving the company by mutual agreement.”

That Leiweke left AEG amicably is highly unlikely, but that is for another story. In any event, prior to his departure, he had been the front man, the face, the pitch man—he was AEG, as far as so many were concerned, especially since Philip Anschutz has been extremely reclusive while at the top of his AEG empire.

LOS ANGELES — The celebratory atmosphere surrounding the 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings took longer to subside than it normally would have for a Stanley Cup Champion, thanks to the delayed start to the new season, courtesy of the latest National Hockey League lockout.

But that atmosphere was back on March 26, when the Kings and the LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer were honored at the White House for their championship seasons by the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

After entering the East Room at the White House, accompanied by Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, and Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, President Obama opened the festivities by recognizing the LA Galaxy, who have won back-to-back MLS Cup Championships.
