Vegas Vacation

In a few hours Indiana Matt and I will be on a plane on our way to Las Vegas for Frozen Fury 13. Now, while this certainly won’t be my first time to Las Vegas, it will be my first time at Frozen Fury. Now… from all the crazy things that Kings fans say they do at Frozen Fury, it seems that most people only go to this pre-season NHL game to drink, gamble and party. Well I think that severely undermines the point of pre-season hockey… to fully evaluate your favorite NHL team, assessing the strengths and weaknesses and getting the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the franchises’ future stars.

So in this spirit, I’ll be providing Twitter updates throughout the weekend as I fully evaluate my favorite NHL team, assessing the strengths and weaknesses while getting the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the franchises’ future stars… all while drinking, gambling and partying.
