The sports web sites are alive with all of the passion you would expect on the topic of the Pittsburgh Penguins moving to Kansas City. Kansas City has offered a sweet deal and apparently the ownership of the Pens is growing tired of the lack of urgency on the part of the City of Pittsburgh and the State of Pennsylvania.
I don’t know whether they will come or not. I hope they do. But I would much rather Kansas City get an expansion team than have to take over another franchise. Pittsburgh has proven to be a great hockey city. They deserve a team. But if they have to leave, I hope they come here.
When I lived in Washington, DC I loved to go the Washington Capitals’ games. Most of you know I am a college basketball nut. But you have to experience a Stanley Cup playoff game to really know how exciting professional sports can be. I still follow the Caps to this day.
Last note: If the Penguins do move to Kansas City they should be required to leave their name, tradition and records in Pittsburgh. Their fans deserve that.
