  7. The Kraken, knowing they need to sell the Seattle market on the new sport in town, have prepared this handy-dandy resource guide to learn the sport, including videos.; This should help too.

  9. Jacksonville is one of the NFL's smaller markets, but the expenses and difficulties of basing anNFL team in London boggle my mind. How man y NFL players would not make it past the Immogration Department, or can't get passports for whatever reason? Birmingham (Alabama) might support an NFL team.

  11. Hockey has started for real in the NHL, and the Kraken played their first game yesterday against the team that set the high bar for expansion teams -- The Vegas Golden Knights, who made the Finals in their first year. The ESPN commentators describing the game thought the Knights were favorites to win everything. As for the Kraken, they said the new team in Seattle would he fighting for a playoff berth in the West, and might even win a series. The game did no go against that assessment. Vegas won on a very questionable goal (The Kraken's coach thought he had kicked the puck into the net, which is illegal in ice hockey, but Toronto could find no hard evidence to overturn the call on the ice. Since that was the game winner, Seattle fans have every reason to be angry), but the Kraken showed skill and heart, coming back from 3-0 midway through the second to tying the game in the third and looking like they could score the lead goal. I imagine some of the the names on that roster will become familiar to me.

  19. Q: So there are significant tax advantages from hosting your servers in San Juan instead of Washington Heights? A: That's why you never hit "Accept All". It avoids errors like this, so perhaps you will remember that on your next job.
