From the LA Kings:
Beginning this season the Los Angeles Kings will officially make the following changes as it pertains to team colors and uniforms, the team announced today:
—The Kings’ official team colors change to black, silver and white.
—The Kings’ primary home uniform switches to the black-silver-and-white uniform the club has worn as an alternate jersey the last two seasons.
—The Kings will wear a newly-created white version of this jersey for all road games this season.
Said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille: “There was an overwhelming sentiment from our fans and from our players that has led us to this change. Our fans really like the late 80s and early 90s era Kings uniforms which are very similar to this uniform. As a player, the colors give you an attitude and an edge. Dean Lombardi and I talked a lot about it with the players and they love it. We feel our fans believe in it as well.”
From the Iowa CHOPS:
Favre and the Iowa Chops do have something in common. They both have received a large amount of publicity the past couple weeks, but for completely different reasons. Favre wants to come out of retirement and play football, but Nitzel believes hockey may be the best sport for him this time around. “We can offer him plenty of bone-crushing hits, read-and-react plays, and thousands of fans cheering for him, so what’s not to like about that?” said Nitzel. “All we have to do is sharpen his skating skills and after that, his athletic instincts will take over and he’ll be one heck of a hockey player.”
Nitzel said the Iowa Chops have contacted and will be sending a contract to Brett Favre’s agent, James ‘Bus’ Cook Jr., in hopes that the quarterback will consider signing with the Iowa Chops. “We live in a beautiful, Midwestern city here in Des Moines and play in a state-of-the-art major league venue at Wells Fargo Arena, so that meets Brett’s criteria of places to play,” said Nitzel. “We wanted to be the first team to offer him something new and challenging, and I believe he will enjoy the thrill of raising the Calder Cup just as much as he did the Vince Lombardi Trophy back in 1997.”
