Team names really began to suck in the 90s. Why do the knights have to have a color associated with them.  What's wrong with just knights or even nights.   The color ads no value.  The only golden knights I can think of are the lannister army. 

It's marketing.   It focuses sales.

Issue with the London Knights name as I understand it...

They're probably Espinosa fans (golden sombrero).

Hung out with the Stanley Cup today,  as well as the trophies that the Caps, Ovi, Trotz and Holts won last year, at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

I went there years ago. Probably 1983. Had a great visit. Glad you enjoyed.

Did you go to Wayne Gretzky's restaurant?  It's right by the HHoF.

No...didn't see it...  :(

Whirlwind tour...50 hours from one border crossing and back to the other...no doubt we missed a lot...

The missus took to the Stampeders while we were there...no bueno in OT...

Doesn't the Stampeders sound like an 80's band?

The photo the gal took of me and the missus at the Cup was not so good...fortunately, the missus took this one of me after we left the "stage."

She looks pretty much the same 30+ years later.  I guess growing up drinking Ohio water and then spending the next 40 years in the rain in England is a sort of embalming process.

Is this the closest the Caps will get to a Cup?

Man, I thought you were writing about the Cup.    I wondered how I missed that story.     :)

The Cup just keeps getting bigger.  It eats a lot.  It even digested Jeff Schultz.
