Sports Illustrated recently dropped an article saying Seattle is on deck for becoming the next city to get an NHL Franchise. I am not going to bore you with all the numbers, but based off the article, with a $10 million deposit and a season ticket drive starting today (March 1st), things are looking like Seattle is going to have the 32nd NHL Franchise.
Is this a good move? Hell yeah it is! Seattle has been begging for an indoor professional sports team since Gary Payton, Shawn Kemp and the entire Sonics team got shipped to Oklahoma City (really it was Durant, but who cares). Since then, all we have heard is them whining about how badly Seattle wants an NBA team back. Some people may say that bringing an NHL team in is a downgrade but I 100% disagree with them. You tell me what you would rather go see: a bunch of 18-25 year olds prima donnas that only care about themselves and how fly they look, or a bunch of bad-asses that are willing to take a 100 mph slap shot to the face? They take one to the grill, get stitched up on the bench, and score a goal. And all of this is for who?? For their mother fucking team. I really shouldn’t even have to ask that question. We all know the NHL is way more hardcore, and fun to watch than the NBA. Ask any chick that has been on a date to an NBA and NHL game. Or ask any dude that knows what the fuck they’re talking about (me)…
Now back to Seattle, sorry for the digression. Seattle has all the makings to become a great NHL town. Their fan base should be easy to generate. They are close to Canada and Alaska… We all know how much the Canadians like hockey, and if you have ever seen Mystery Alaska well…then you know. Also, native Seattle residents have been jonesing for another “real” professional sports franchise, because we all know the MLS is probably worse than watching an Adult Beer League Hockey game. Sorry to all my futbol friends out there, but it’s true. Let’s give the people of Seattle what they never knew they wanted: THE NHL!
Now the only question in all this… what will their name and mascot be?? Love to hear what you guys think. COMMENT BELOW!
