Longtime Kings beat writer Rich Hammond, who if I'm not mistaken is these days employed by the Kings organization and not any silly newspaper, implies the Fourth Period's report is nonsense:
If you’re interested in talking hockey, New York Yankees baseball, politics or any number of subjects with him, Dean Lombardi will be at the Kings game tonight, at Staples Center, in Los Angeles, nowhere near any other cities. That’s what he just said in a text message, and referred to any suggestions to the contrary as “absurd.” Hopefully we can move along now, but I doubt it.
He'll be at the Kings game tonight. Where was he last night and the night before that? HMMM?
