250,000 Kings Fans Attend Victory Parade — compare that to the Ducks, who had

…nothing, because they didn’t have a victory parade in 2007. They had 25,000 people in a parking lot.

    I heard that the Ducks actually had 15,000 people at that parking lot thing, which is less than a Honda Center sellout.  I also read that they opted against having a parade because they felt there wouldn’t be enough interest.  That’s absolutely pathetic.

    I heard they didn’t have a parade to avoid traffic problems.  I guess Los Angeles, one of the worst traffic cities in the world, felt like a little traffic was worth it to throw a ridiculous party for their many many fans.

    Maybe we could have had our parade past Honda center?

    As one of the core “Forum 12,000″ (really 8,500 by my reckoning) I was quite taken back by the size of the turnout. 

    Its not a matter of validation, a turnout this size is way beyond that point, it is the pleasure a parent feels when seeing an oft wayward child discover him or herself and grows to find happiness and success in life. 

    For all the Vancouver, Detroit and NYC fans who show up for games at Staples. “Welcome to the Home of the Stanley Cup Champions”!

    In addition to matching rings during the next Duck-Kings Media Team Faceoff, Fox should prepare side by side “celebration” photos to rub in Hayward’s face.

    I read an article on the OC Register site about the parade, and a Kings fan said something about how much better our parade was than the Ducks’ little “rally”.  In the comments, Ducks fans were getting all whiny and calling the fans “classless” for giving “cheapshots” to the Ducks.  The same fans that went to the trouble of printing out signs, banners, and posters mocking the Kings when their team won the Cup are complaining about a Kings fan mocking their “parade”.  Hypocrisy at its finest with Ducks fans.
