Suddenly I keep having these surreal moments at work of people walking up to talk all about the LA Kings. I mean, this does not happen in Los Angeles. Hockey fandom was something weird and unseemly best kept to oneself. Nobody ever spoke of it. But now this. People walk up to my desk and start gushing about Jonathan Quick and Justin Brown and the other guys (they only know Quick and Brown’s name) and try to talk hockey talk and suddenly I know what it’s like to be Lakers fan. It’s very unsettling.
