LOS ANGELES -- Snoop Dogg's illustrious rap career has intersected with Pittsburgh in more ways than one, beginning with his wearing of the old diagonal-lettered Penguins sweater in the iconic 'Gin and Juice' video from 1993, but continuing on to a fervent fandom of the Steelers and beyond.
On this Saturday night at Staples Center, he played DJ for the Penguins-Kings warmups, then dropped the ceremonial first puck between an amused Sidney Crosby and Anze Kopitar.
And hey, as long as he was in the house, someone really needed to ask him about Antonio Brown, right?
This actually works both ways. When the L.A. reporters come to Pittsburgh, they get to interview Wiz Khalifa.
