    I said "Go, Vegas!" -- and now they're gone. The Golden Knights beat the Capitals 6-4 in game one and then proceeded to lose games two, three, four and five. But hey, just wait till next year!

    The Washington Capitals win their first Stanley Cup

    I love this letter from Steve McCarthy of Monrovia in today's Los Angeles Times: "Of course the Capitals will be invited to the White House. Look at how many Russians are on the team."

    "Boo hoo, other coaches are making more money than I make." Yeah, so you quit -- and now you're not making any money. Brilliant.

    Here is a good story from ESPN about what we can expect from the Golden Knights next season. I think they will win the Pacific division again.

    General manager Rob Blake explained, "We haven't played the way we expected to." Just think how professional sports teams might improve if general managers could fire players instead of always making a scapegoat of the coach.

    Kings fire John Stevens, name Willie Desjardins as interim coach

    The Golden Knights expansion team cost $500,000,000. The Seattle team will cost $650,000,000. Wow, talk about inflation!

    Seattle chosen for NHL's 32nd team in 2021-22
