Joe T’s Scoreboard

by Joe Torosian

Off To Vegas:
I’m not off to Las Vegas but if anyone picked the Los Angeles Kings to win three consecutive playoff series in Game Seven’s on the road…they need to load up the car and get going.

I’m old enough to remember the “Miracle on Manchester Street” in 1982, when they came back from a 5-0 deficit to beat the Edmonton Oilers, and I believe this playoff run is greater.

Thriller:
Watching the end of the Kings-Blackhawks game on Sunday night was like watching “The Andromeda Strain” for the first time.

Good News Department:
Good news for El Monte football coach Joel Sanchez, at least. After eleven years of reading about me critiquing him, he got the chance to see me swing a golf club last Friday. I haven’t seen him smile so much since the Lions advanced to the second round of the 2012 playoffs.

Sorry To See Her Go:
It was sad to hear about the passing of Ann B. Davis on Sunday at the age of 88. Davis played “Alice” on the “The Brady Bunch.” I always heard and read about the things she did, but my favorite on screen moment is when she explains to the kids about “Tinker, to Evers, to Chance,” the Chicago Cubs famous double play combination from the early 1900’s.

Summer Days Drifting Our Way:
If you have not been to the El Monte Aquatic Center you are missing something special. You can find them easily online, and see what they have to offer for you and your family this summer.

Have To Wonder:
If the Clippers are worth two billion dollars, in what is essentially a fire sale, because they are in the Los Angeles market, what would an NFL team be worth in this market?

Happy Birthday this week to:
6/4: Temple City alum and longtime area assistant Matt Lopez turns 27.
6/5: Former Arcadia football player Lane Barchan turns 25.
6/6: Former Arroyo quarterback Dominic Salmon turns 26.
6/10: Former Arroyo quarterback Brian Partida turns 24.
