As you may have heard, hockey teams in the NHL have had a lot of free time on their hands lately. While the labor dispute and resulting lock-out is finally over and teams are starting to strap on their skates, pick up their sticks and hit the ice, the teams had a lot of time to sit around and catch up on all their favorite television shows. When it comes to the LA Kings, turns out that they spent their off season watching Portlandia. Yep, Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show is big in LA (we’re united in our hatred of Seattle!) The LA Kings are huge fans of Portlandia, so they joined the Portlandia Co-Op and submitted an application to be guest tweeters. Can you guess what happened next? That’s right the LA Kings are taking over the Portlandia Twitter feed this week. Byaayyy! Follow along @IFCportlandia.
When the LA Kings hit the ice and finally start their season , Portlandia fans can teach LA Kings fan how to chant “Please Please Win! Meow meow meow!”:
Portlandia airs on IFC on Fridays at 10/9c
