@Zhente: No, that's ridiculous. That gives you the latency between you and Google. That doesn't give you the latency between you and Riot's servers. Worse, for people in Australia/NZ/Japan and such who often use American servers, Google is probably going to be local to their country while data going to Riot will cross the Pacific ocean and have the unavoidable speed of light-related latency that implies. The minimum realistic latency for them to USA is something like ~150 ms and usually a little over 200 ms from what I've seen from all the Aussies I game with.
So the two ping times are not necessarily the same, though they might be similar if the lag is on your end (e.g. your family is watching a movie/downloading something). And they might be ridiculous if one computer is on the same side of the Pacific ocean as you are and the other is not.
In other words, at least ping na.leagueoflegends.com or something that might plausibly go over the same network routes as the game data. Oh, and obviously that "na" part of na.leagueoflegends.com should be the region you're playing in. I assume everyone here plays in the NA region, but you never know.
