Well, just before I left work (2:30 pm), I saw an alert on my phone. The NHL has granted an expansion team to Las Vegas.
This is very exciting, to me. This means that I can actually plan a trip to Las Vegas a few times a year, to go see the Sharks at some of their “away” games. (I might even be able to afford to take my family to a game!)
Also, this means that hockey in the west is going to continue to expand. Very, very cool stuff.
