Howdy, spofites! Just a note to say that I finally had a chance to go to a Vegas Golden Knights game on Wednesday (against the Avalanche). Holy shit have they created an electric atmosphere in Vegas. Bunch of food trucks in the Toshiba Plaza pre-game, the Knights Dancers and pep band come marching through and put on a pep rally on a stage outside the arena while you eat and drink. One you're inside, its as festive an atmosphere as you'll ever see, with the skating knights fighting pre-game, Vegas showgirls dancing behind the visiting team's goalie during warmups, local celebrities sounding the pre-period horn. I can see why Nevada is hockey crazy these days. Well done!

Totally Vegas. All the way down to the $20 beers.
