Even Vegas Knights practices are LIT AF
Golden Knights fans who want to attend team practices should be prepared to wait in line to get into City National Arena during the Stanley Cup Final.
Because of safety concerns, the Knights have instituted a policy change for practices. Fans still will be admitted for free on a first-come, first-served basis. But there will be a cutoff once capacity has been reached inside the rink. Seating capacity is about 600, but fans have been allowed to congregate at ice level and stand along the glass.
The policy is effective immediately. The Knights will practice at 11 a.m. Saturday.
We’re TALKING ABOUT PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE! I was in the middle of a discussion Friday on the golf course over whether what’s going on in Vegas with success is good for the over all health of hockey in Vegas. Uh, we’ve been over this before. IT’S VERY HEALTHY. Are you and the boys going to do a trip to Edmonton for an Oilers game or to Vegas where they’re putting on an incredible show and the hysteria has turned into lines to get into practice? Throw a Stanley Cup into Vegas and we have a must-visit for years to come.
Of course winning matters, but we’re headed towards sports just being the background music for the party. People are still going to go to Vegas for a game like it’s a minor league baseball game even if the Knights turn into a 20-win team after all of this is over.
