Thank You SinBinners

In the middle of a random night 34 months ago I woke up with a realization. For whatever reason, that night it hit me that the NHL was probably coming to Las Vegas. At that time, I was a frustrated radio producer trying to find my way into sports media, the career I’ve wanted to pursue since I was 10 years old after coming to the conclusion I’d never be a professional athlete.

I sat up in my bed and thought, what will my role be in the first major sports franchise coming to the only city I’ve ever proudly called my home? The short answer was nothing, and that wasn’t okay with me. At that moment, the idea for SinBin.vegas was born.

The next morning I brought the idea to Jason, the closest friend I had in town, my radio co-host, and the biggest hockey fan I’ve ever known. I don’t remember his exact words, but the response to the idea was luke-warm at best. I tried to explain the master plan of how we could get press passes and cover the team without the boundaries of traditional media holding us back. We could do it our way I told him. This is where I do remember his exact words, he said, “but who the heck is going to read it?”

He had a point (which is rare), I’ll never forget it, and it’s why on the night that concludes the first chapter of the Vegas Golden Knights story, I want to say thank you.

Thank you to each and every person who has ever visited this site, listened to our podcasts, or interacted with us virtually or in real life. Without all of you, we would not have been able to have had the countless unbelievable experiences we’ve had over the past three years.

Thank you SinBinners, we love ya.

We are allowed into the games because of you.

We talk to the players, coaches, management, and the owner because of you.

We’ve been there every step of the way, from before the awarding of the franchise to the Stanley Cup Final, because of you.

We do not have the backing of a newspaper, TV station, or an established media website like most covering this team. We have the backing of you and we are taken seriously, because of you.

Thank you for talking to us. Thank you for listening to us. Thank you for being there for us.

Thank you for making SinBin.vegas legitimate and thank you for allowing us to do what we love.

SinBin.vegas Expansion Draft Contest

We know you’ve been doing mock drafts for the past year preparing for the big day on June 21st when we finally learn the identity of the 30 players selected by the Vegas Golden Knights. It’s now time to put those mock drafts to action and enter the SinBin.vegas Expansion Draft Contest, where you can win a Hockey Fat Bike, VGK gear, and possibly even a pair of tickets to opening night at T-Mobile Arena.

Here’s how it works. All you have to do is hop on over to CapFriendly.com’s Expansion Tool and draft your team. Protect players, pick Vegas’ 30 selections, and then publish it using the name “SinBin2017 YOUR NAME” Ex. “SinBin2017 Ken Boehlke” (For a complete guide on how to enter, click here.)

That’s it. What can you win?

Grand Prize – A Vegas Golden Knights* Hockey Fat Bike by Schwinn ($655 value)

1st Prize – 4 tickets to Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis at Planet Hollywood AND a Foursome of Golf at Royal Links Golf Course in Las Vegas. ($488 value)

2nd Prize – A Golden Knights Prize Pack from SportsTown in Downtown Summerlin ($150 value)

PLUS if you happen to get at least 25 of the 30 selections right, and score the highest total in the contest you win the Hockey Fat Bike AND…

Super Grand PrizeA Pair of Tickets to the Vegas Golden Knights regular season home opener at T-Mobile Arena (Date and opponent TBA)

Here’s how the scoring works. You get one point for every correctly predicted player selected compared to the actual selections made by George McPhee and the Golden Knights. We will use the 30 selections the NHL announces as the picks from Vegas prior to trades. If there’s a tie, we’ll use protected players as a tiebreaker (see official rules for details).

Once again, here’s the link to draft your team. Just remember, when you publish your entry use the name “SinBin2017 YOUR NAME” and you are automatically entered.

Enter now and win a Schwinn Hockey Fat Bike!!! (Contest ends when protection lists are submitted, at exactly 7AM PT on Sunday June 18th.)

Draft Lottery Party Tonight At Miller’s Ale House

Tonight is the first night ever there’s an event in which the Golden Knights can win, and the rest of the NHL can lose. Of course, there’s a 89.7% chance of the opposite, but I’m trying to stay positive here. The NHL Draft Lottery will be aired live on NBC starting at 5PM.

SinBin.vegas is hosting a party at Miller’s Ale House at Town Square to watch and hopefully celebrate the Golden Knights winning the lottery and securing the first pick.

Vegas has a 10.3% chance of winning the first pick and about a 35% chance of winning one of the three lotteries and picking in the top three. (To read all about how the lottery actually works, read this) GM George McPhee will be on hand in Toronto representing the Golden Knights, but made the grave mistake of not bringing along Stanley the Golden Rooster as a good luck charm. Again, trying to stay positive, but man, what an error in judgement.

We’ve got Viva VGK and SinBin shirts, SinBin hats, commemorative lottery ping pong balls, and food and drink specials at Miller’s tonight for what should be a fun night. Admission is free and the doors are open to everybody including those under 21.

See you tonight, and Viva VGK!

**Note: The lottery is expected to start pretty close to 5PM as the Penguins/Capitals   game is scheduled for 5:11 and the lottery is supposed to take place before that.**

Trump Executive Order Jokes – Golden Knights Style
