According to the website coverbrowser.com (linked here), this particular cover is No. 77 on the list of the Top 100 Worst Album Covers of All Time.

How it relates to the Kings’ 2010-11 TV schedule? They have 77 games scheduled to air among Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket (70 there) and Versus, NBC and KDOC.

That means five didn’t make it (in L.A.): Nov. 6 at home vs. Nashville (FSW is locked in with a Clippers game at Utah and Prime Ticket is locked in with USC-Arizona State football game), Dec. 18 at Nashville, Dec. 29 at Phoenix, Feb. 2 at Edmonton and March 9 at Detroit.

(What’s the problem with Nashville? Aside from the fact hockey should never be played there).

(We also suspect Don Cherry got his jackets from the same store these twins have shopped, but that could be a stretch. A real stretch. A 54-long stretch.)

The coverage on FSW starts with all 10 games in October — staring with the opener on Saturday, Oct. 9 at Vancouver. For the second season in a row, all FSW/Prime games are in high definition.

An interesting twist: The Kings’ games at Anaheim on Nov. 29 and Feb. 23 will both air on FSW, the Kings’ home network. Meaning play-by-play man Bob Miller (starting his 38th season) and analyst Jim Fox (in his 21st season) will do their first Kings game from Anaheim, since the network has in the past allowed the Ducks’ Prime Ticket package to have sole coverage of previous head-to-head games with their Southern California rival. Miller and Fox may also do the March 13 game at Dallas if NBC passes on it as a regional telecast.

Heidi Androl returns as a reporter (third season) with Patrick O’Neal (sixth season). Steven Dorfman (second season) is the producer and Mike Hassan (15th season) is the director of the FSW telecasts.

All 82 Kings regular-season games are scheduled to air on KTLK-AM (1150), with Nick Nickson (starting his 30th season in the organization and 21st on radio) and Daryl Evans (12th season) on the call. All games have a 30-minute pre-game show and all home games (plus those in Anaheim) will have a “Kings Talk” post-game show.

The Kings Radio Network this season includes KVTA-AM (1520) in Ventura, KHTS-AM (1220) in Santa Clarita, KMET-AM (1490) in Banning, KLOA-AM (1240) in Ridgecrest, KOSS-AM (1380) in Palmdale and KPTR-AM (1450) in Palm Springs.

The Kings also start the exhibition season Wednesday at Colorado on 1150-AM, as well as Thursday at Phoenix, Sept. 28 vs. Anaheim, Oct. 2 vs. Colorado in Las Vegas and Oct. 3 at Anaheim.
