LA Kings' Jonathan Quick beats censors on live TV
One way to rile up a crowd during a typical boilerplate speech is throw in a four-letter word to spice things up. Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick did just that not once but three times with his profane praise of his teammates during a rally celebrating the team's Stanley Cup Championship on Thursday at the packed Staples Center.
During a live broadcast on KCAL 9, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner cracked up the thousands of fans— waving towels and giving standing ovations to every player— by mixing in the F-bombs with all the pomp surrounding the ceremony.
Even the anchorwoman acknowledged the censor wasn't fast enough on the button to bleep Quick all three times and apologized.
This year's Stanley Cup Trophy is getting the Hollywood treatment. Before riding with the team on double-decker buses and flatbed trucks through Los Angeles' city center parade route, the large silver trophy has appeared on "The Tonight Show" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and on Wednesday it posed with the Kings at Dodger Stadium for a photo-op with the Dodgers and Angels after each Kings player threw out a first pitch.
And who can forget that adorable video of one player's kids dressed as Spiderman drinking chocolate milk from it? Well, now comes the hardcore.
