Conan O’Brien joins long list of LA media that don’t really know what’s going on with the Kings

Kings

Conan O'Brien is an Easterner through and through. He was born in Massachusetts, and established himself with a late-night talk show filmed in New York. But, in June of 2009, when Conan took over for Jay Leno as the host of the Tonight Show, he packed up and moved to Los Angeles. The adjustment has been awkward at times. The man is still a New Yorker at heart.

But now we have definitive proof that he's beginning to think like LA media: his most recent tweet shows that he knows nothing about the Los Angeles Kings.

Not a bad tweet, except for one small hiccup: the series has been over for days. Brad Doty, Slamson and the rest of the Sacramento Kings are just resting up now, awaiting their Stanley Cup Final opponent. None of this went unnoticed by the LA Kings' Conn Smythe-calibre Twitter account, which took the opportunity to make chump meat out of the maestro, zinging O'Brien on the fact that his humour doesn't translate to earlier timeslots:

The only thing that would have made this tweet better is if it were hashtagged with #hahaifoundanerror.

Then Bailey, the Kings' mascot, chimed in.

Ouch. Bailey's had a real chip on his shoulder since that Slamson thing.

Conan was instantly blitzed with mentions from other fans calling him out on the error as well. He eventually responded, sort of:

But that's not enough to make this right. Bailey suggested he come on the show and settle this "Mano y Liono", but I'm pretty sure the only way for Conan to smooth things over is to have a candlelit pancake dinner with Dustin Penner on his show.
