I was surfing a local sportstalk website when I found an L.A. Kings promotion which centered around retired King Luc Robitaille.
I see tickets to two games, hats, an opportunity to win dinner with Luc, blah, blah, blah.
Then I read a line, do a double take, and read it again.
Sure ’nuff it says what I thought it did: “Photo opportunity with Luc’s retirement jersey.”
Is that a modern day version of catching King Tutankhamun’s world tour? If you think about it, all you get with that is some rags that you have to trust has the young King inside. But at least you have the King inside.
Talk about empty benefits.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for retired Angels player Tim Salmon’s cleats to go on tour. That’s another shutterbug opp.
