Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders.

The Kings’ spread out post-Christmas break, pre-bye week Western Canada jaunt has reached its final stop, and lo, there are tall buildings. They are so tall, in fact, and LAKI is at the base of the U-shaped hotel, that the photos represent the very origin of the Good Morning feature, when Rich Hammond was placed opposite brick walls and loading docks and other views that don’t quite represent New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty at dusk. A wiser fellow than myself once said, “sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear, well, he eats you.”

Thank you for keeping up with all the mostly applicable Lebowski, Simpsons and Game of Thrones references, Insiders. The Kings will take the ice at 1:00 p.m. MT, at which point there will be news, reports, transcripts and maybe even an obscure Futurama quote. Waking up with the Kings is coming up next. Let’s talk soon, Insiders. Enjoy your Wednesday. (I think it’s a Wednesday.)
