Carp: Farewell

As many of you may have heard, I have accepted a position with Vegas Hockey Now to cover the Golden Knights. One of the stipulations was I could not write for a compelling entity. Thus, my tenure at SinBin.vegas has come to an end.

When Ken approached me three years ago about writing a weekly column, I saw it as an opportunity to remain connected to the team and its fan base. But it ultimately became much more than that. I got to become good friends with Ken and Jason, who have put so much effort to launch and grow SinBin.vegas. I had a wonderful sponsor in Las Vegas attorney Jim Jimmerson. And I got to interact with a group of readers who are truly passionate about hockey in general and the Golden Knights in particular.

Yes, we may have disagreed from time to time, but I always appreciated the respect shown to me on this site as I wrote every Sunday. That meant a lot and was the main reason I continued to write for SinBin.

So while this may mean farewell, it does not mean goodbye. I will remain in Las Vegas. I will continue to write about the Golden Knights, only on a different platform. I invite all of you to check out my work at vegashockeynow.com and if you like what you see, we’d love to have you come on board as a subscriber.

Yes, vegashockeynow.com and SinBin.Vegas are technically competitors. But we are also friends and will remain friends. I believe it’s healthy to have different points of view and it helps the reader get more information.

So as I leave this space, allow me to say thank you. First, to Ken and Jason for having me as a colleague the last three years. You guys are awesome. My one regret was not appearing on more SinBin podcasts where Ken just lets ‘er rip and doesn’t hold back any punches.

Second, my thanks to attorney Jim Jimmerson for his sponsorship of my column. He is a good man, an excellent lawyer, and someone I consider a friend. Without his financial backing, there would not have been a column.

Finally, my biggest thanks goes to the readers. You folks are awesome. I admire your passion and dedication to hockey and the Golden Knights and you are the reason the NHL is working in Las Vegas. Your unwavering support of sites such as SinBin shows the world that this is indeed a great hockey town. Thank you again for your support of my work and your kind comments every week. I will always remember your appreciation that made this a great experience.

Enjoy the upcoming hockey season and I hope to hear from many of you in the days and weeks ahead in my new venture.

Introducing VGK Horology

VGK Horology Logo

2020 was a year filled with boredom. Boredom often leads to wacky, ridiculous, completely superfluous ideas. One day during quarantine I become obsessed with the concept of NFLScorigami and trying to find a way to bring it to the game of hockey. Of course, since every score is pretty much somewhere between 1-0 and 10-9, there really weren’t enough scores to do that. So, I looked towards something that has a slightly larger sample size. And that’s where I came to…

Time!

Every time a player scores a goal in a hockey game, the exact time in which that goal is scored is recorded. I thought to myself, I wonder how often goals are scored at the exact same second as other goals. So, like any bored blogger would do, I went back over every single goal in Vegas Golden Knight history to find out. With it came the birth of VGK Horology.

The word “horology” means the study and measurement of time. VGK Horology is the study of when the Vegas Golden Knights score goals.

An NHL hockey game is 60 minutes long, which breaks down to 3,600 seconds. We are counting until a Golden Knight scores on exactly every single one of them. (Well, technically since 20:00, 40:00, and 60:00 are impossible and the first five seconds of each period are incredibly rare, so we have reduced the number to 3,582 seconds.)

Each time a Golden Knight scores on a unique second in the game, the goal is deemed a “Horogoal.” Horogoals are only counted in the regular season and during regulation.

We’ve set up a Twitter account that has been backlogged with every goal ever scored by the Golden Knights (in the regular season) and will be updating it with every goal scored from here on out.

So far there have been 649 Horogoals scored over the first 235 Golden Knights games. That leaves 2,933 more until VGK Horology is complete.

VGK Horology now has it’s own page on the site and will be updated monthly. The Twitter account will be updated following every goal.

Check out the VGK Horology Page for stats, season breakdowns, and the complete log of Horogoals so farVG

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from SinBin.vegas!

Introducing Our 2020 Playoff “Photographer”

Here at SinBin.vegas we have the best photographer in the NHL. Game in and game out Brandon Andreasen provides us with unbelievably amazing pictures capturing the action at T-Mobile Arena.

But, with the games for the next two months taking place in the bubble north of the border, Brandon wasn’t given access to shoot photos for our site. Due to licensing rules, that means we don’t have legal access to a single photo of any game in Edmonton or Toronto.

So, we had to improvise.

We’d like to introduce our 2020 Playoff “Photographer,” the one, the only, @BadSportsArt. His first assignment for SinBin.vegas was to “shoot” the Golden Knights exhibition game against the Coyotes.

Truly stunning images of the Golden Knights 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

@BadSportsArt will be with us throughout the entirety of the Golden Knights playoff run.


Give @BadSportsArt a follow on Twitter and/or follow him on Instagram, and if you ever have a moment you want to be drawn, give him a shout.
