About a year and a half ago, I asked who would get a sports franchise based out of North America first: London or Las Vegas?
It seems we have a winner to the answer of that question: the NHL is widely rumored to pick Las Vegas as its 31st franchise when their poobahs discuss expansion in the near future. The Vegas team would begin play in the fall of 2017.
As someone who has lived in Vegas twice (albeit for less than a month each time), congratulations, Vegas! Glad to see this city take its place among those with major sports teams.
