In June the Los Angeles Kings won their second championship in three years. We all forced ourselves to smile for Jeff Schultz, then we laughed our most miserable laughs when we saw Schultz’s day with the Stanley Cup. Like look at this picture. Sarge is trolling us.
On Tuesday the final chapter of Sarge’s heroic tale of buyout to champion was written when a commenter from Japers Rink posted a photo of the newly engraved cup.
We had reported over the summer that the Kings had put in a special waiver to the NHL to get the ineligible Mr. Nasty on the NHL’s most revered trophy. Well, here that is. Soak it in for a minute.
And let’s zoom too. Zooming is good.
When I think of the Stanley Cup, I think of Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Jean Beliveau, Scott Niedermayer, and Patrick Roy.
Now all I can think about is Jeff Schultz’s big stupid monotone giraffe face.
