Rob already posted this, but a bunch of us got this press release from Fox Sports today.  Anyone want to burn these to DVD for me, since I live in a city that doesn't get FSN West?  Also, Chuck from Angels win noted that it's not actually 2008 anymore.

Heck of a day

It's 85 degrees outside here in L.A.  The Kings score a week's worth of goals.  The Illini run roughshod over Ohio State.  And the nation's biggest d-bag gets on a plane back to Texas, this time for good.  

It was a good day.
