The owner of the Chicago Blackhawks, Rocky Wirtz, is bringing the Stanley Cup to Las Vegas for a whirlwind tour. It will only be in town one day but it will be all over town.

Wirtz will show off the Cup at an invitation-only event at the Gold Spike in downtown Las Vegas because of the Wirtz Beverage partnership with Hsieh, the Downtown Development Project and the Life Is Beautiful Festival scheduled for Oct. 25 to 27. Wirtz Beverage Nevada is the exclusive beverage sponsor of the Life is Beautiful Festival, and Wirtz wants to show his support for downtown Las Vegas and its redevelopment efforts and initiatives such as the music, art and culinary festival.

Then, the Cup heads to the Bellagio for a Monday evening engagement. Pawlak said she will look into the possibility of the Cup making a cameo by the Bellagio’s famous fountains.

I’m not much of a hockey fan but I’ve had my picture taken with the Stanley Cup. There is a lot of history in that trophy. I’d imagine if you’re a Chicago Blackhawks fan in Las Vegas you’ll probably want to check it out.

The article doesn’t outline a specific itinerary for the Stanley Cup so you may want to follow the Review Journal on Twitter for updates on where it is. Actually you may get more information directly from the Chicago Blackhawks official twitter.

Dog Days Of Summer Begin Today

Chicago Blackhawks And The Stanley Cup

Congrats to the Chicago Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup last night. Thanks and goodbye. This concludes the sports that get in the way of my favorite sport – baseball. Major League Baseball takes center stage in the sports world for the next couple of months until football (college and pro) take over.

Baseball is my favorite sport and I love going to the sportsbook and watching baseball and nothing but baseball. The sportsbooks are usually empty because fewer people care about MLB every year. MLB is slowly becoming a fringe sport like hockey. That’s okay, more room for me.

I enjoy just watching the games but I usually have a few bucks on a game or two and I usually have a few players in action on the greatest fantasy baseball team of all-time: The Las Vegas Porterhouse (AKA LVPH).

The dog days of summer refer to the excessive summer heat in July and August. In Las Vegas the temperatures get up into the 115+ degree range. This stinks but it’s a great excuse to head to the sportsbook to get some air conditioning. Day games no longer provide any problems as some of my favorite casinos have free wifi and I can work while watching the games. Check out my “office” at Red Rock Resort during the NHL playoffs.

Thank you to the other sports for passing the time over the past few months. Now it’s time for my favorite sport to take over. I’ll see you at the sportsbook. HUZZAH!
