KC Biz journal chimes in on the Pens

Bidder remains interested in bringing NHL team to KC
The Kansas City Business Journal has a very short article about Sam Fingold and his possible purchase of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

There is nothing in this article that you wouldn't already know if you read this blog.

Well, you would learn some new, inaccurate things like:

The sale of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League will enter a new stage in July, and could be completed by June of 2007, according to a Connecticut developer who has talked of buying the team and moving it to Kansas City.

June 2007? Really? Because the Pittsburgh papers, which I'm guessing have a better grasp of the situation, say it will be final before the 2006-07 season, which starts this October.

Sam Fingold, owner of Kenyon Investments LLC in Hartford, Conn., said he remains interested in buying the Penguins.

What did I say months ago? Sam Fingold -- Get to know him!

Several other casinos have submitted bids for the license, which should be granted by the state by the end of this year.

Several? Try two other casinos. And, one is a small fish, Don Barden's North Star, playing in a pond which is way too big for his little fins.

It's between gaming giant Harrah's and Isle of Capri.
