If you are a sports fan, other than the madness in March, October is a sports fan dream. The NFL is in full swing, the MLB playoffs have started and of course there is NHL OPENING KNIGHT!!!
For some, opening night is better than Christmas Day, for others, it’s their New Year. For every team opening night signifies the start of a renewed quest for the cup. Every team, all their fans and players are filled with excitement and optimism that this year is the year!
As we are one day removed from the second anniversary of the October 1 tragedy, our city once more turns to the Golden Knights to help the healing of our great city to continue. The 3rd Opening Knight in franchise history brings with it unfinished business, and a new beginning. The Sharks are a familiar foe and the short yet storied history between the two franchises start a new chapter tonight at T-Mobile Arena. 18,000 plus cheering fans donned in their battle black and gold hope to sing along to Vegas Lights early and often.
We at Original Vegas wanted to pay homage with our first blog post the the Original professional sports team in Las Vegas. Just as Original Vegas is Vegas Born, so too are our Golden Knights. We strive hard to capture the spirit of the city and our teams in everything we do. We will forever be grateful for everything the Golden Knight’s franchise has done for our town and our community. The VGK will always be the OG's (or Original Vegas) of professional sports in Las Vegas.
We hope everyone enjoys OPENING KNIGHT 2019 tonight! Go Knights! Go!
