More basketball talk than baseball, but still interesting.

Very interesting. Basketball makes more sense for Vegas, since it is an indoor sport to begin with. It also attracts the high rollers more so than baseball.

Had anyone else heard those rumors about the '95 Super Bowl? It was news to me (but I live a sheltered life).

what about the 95 SB?

It was in the linked article above, that the result of the 95 SB was preordained (not to say "fixed") because if the Chargers had won, the financial losses in Vegas would have been astronomical.

Yeah, like SD that year had any kind of chance against the Niners.

I think the spread was 19 1/2 which was the biggest spread in SB history.

I still don't see LV getting a sports team in a long time. Just too much craziness surround the gambling issue.
