The Vegas Experience

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, Remember what we used to think about placing a professional sports team in Las Vegas? That players would spend more time in the casinos than the gym. That game-fixing was inevitable, and only single players would want to be there. Certainly, “Sin City” was no place for spouses and children. Vegas was all about Mike Tyson’s tigers and $500 bottle service. And anyhow, with all the locals working shift work at the hotels and casinos, how would they pos...

Las Vegas pushes land swap to balance growth, conservation

Record-breaking heat and historic drought in the U.S. West are doing little to discourage cities from planning to welcome millions of new residents in the decades ahead. From Phoenix to Boise, officials are preparing for a future both with more people and less water, seeking to balance growth and conservation. Development is constrained by the fact that 46% of the 11-state Western region is federal land, managed by agencies like the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management that are task...

Whicker: Matthew Wolff back in the swing after mental vacation

Matthew Wolff’s golf game vibrated like a re-entering space capsule. Three birdies in his first four holes. A bogey on his sixth (the 15th at Torrey Pines), a double bogey after a 2-foot miss on the next and a bogey on the one after that. Then birdies in five of the next six. Then another double on his 16th. Matthew Wolff, the person, rode it out. He’s been working on the version of himself that does not grip a golf club. That one survived the hairpin turns of his first round of the U.S. Open, a...

It’s A Series Now Between Montreal And Vegas

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, Well… What do we have here? That fourth-place team from the ultra-weak Canadian Division that was going to get swept by the Vegas Golden Knights? Ya, they’re heading home with home-ice advantage after winning Game 2 by a 3-2 score, proving to the hockey world that, yes, the Montreal Canadiens can play with the Golden Knights. “Those people who said we were going to sweep,” dismissed Vegas head coach Peter DeBoer, “are the same people who said th...

Middleweight champ Jermall Charlo seeks big fights and big money

Jermall Charlo knows Juan Montiel doesn’t belong in the ring with him, but he’s done being frustrated about not facing worthy opponents. Charlo is way past the point of passing the eye test. His skills say he’s one of the best pound-for-pound boxers, but his résumé doesn’t back that up. Charlo, a 13-year professional fighter, hasn’t been truly tested, and likely won’t be Saturday when he defends his WBC middleweight title against Montiel for a Showtime-televised main event from Charlo’s hometown...
