Is Taylor Swift to blame for the Los Angeles Kings not winning a playoff series in a while? Some fans think so. The So Cal hockey team has been unlucky in the playoffs since the arena they play in, The Staples Center, hung a banner congratulating Swift on the most consecutive sellout concerts at the venue. The Kings’ fans see the banner as an eyesore and wanted the team to cover it up. The organization obliged and Taylor’s banner will not be seen at all during home hockey games. Does this reek of desperation by the Kings? Do you have any weird sports superstitions?
