NHL to Vegas?
James Mirtle, who seems to be in a Vegas state of mind these days (and really, why shouldn't he be?), has happened upon a Las Vegas Sun article that claims "Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer, MGM Studios CEO Harry Sloan and Wall Street financier David Bonderman" are partnering to bring an NHL franchise to Vegas by October 2010.
Good, I say. The best part? The proposed 20,000-seat arena has a good chance of being built right behind the Strip! After the game you can stumble right across the street to the Bellagio and watch the dancing fountain show, drunk.
Okay, so what's the name going to be?
The Vegas Sinatras
The Las Vegas Wayne Newton (not plural, mind, but singular)
The Las Vegas Lounge Lizards
The Vegas Siegfrieds
The Las Vegas Mafia
...anyone else have better ideas?
Whatever name they choose, their mascot should be a dancing slot machine.
