The REAL Reason the Vegas Golden Knights will win the Stanley Cup [2018]

"Great....another angry post about [my] Vegas Golden Knights. Y'all haters love to talk LOL!"

Let me say this: Grown men who still use "LOL" often say things that aren't important, nor are often taken seriously. They're the same people who see an article then respond pretending they read the whole thing. Ha! Nice try, buster.

Now that Las Vegas is the fresh, new destination to host a sports team, the Golden Knights have had a steady post-season run. While the sports news media love to rave and boast about how "difficult" their journey was, everyone here knows why they've gotten to the Stanley Cup Finals. How "difficult" is this journey when this is barely the team's first season?

Living in Los Angeles, California, Las Vegas is my second home. When I was a kid, we'd always drive up to Vegas to visit my grandmother; That visitation was two to three times a month, so growing up, we were always in Vegas. However, since my birth took place here in Los Angeles, I'm a Kings fan. Was I surprised the Kings got knocked out in the first round by the Golden Knights? Not at all. Heck, I didn't even know why we secured a spot in the playoffs since we were topsy-turvy this season.

While the Golden Knights have impressed Sin City and raised some eyebrows around the league, I believe we all know why they likely deserve the championship:

If you weren't aware of the huge breaking news that took place in Las Vegas on the night of October 1, 2017, you've been under that rock for too long. You can click here for the full information about the tragedy.

It seems that what cities get struck with tragic events—be it natural disasters or purposely-triggered massacre—sports leagues help the city recover by making them feel good again. How? Having their sports team win. The sad part is that multiple cities that are struck don't always get the benefit, leaving them in the dust.

If you don't believe us, ask the New England Patriots in 2002 (9/11), the New Orleans Saints in 2005 (Hurricane Katrina), the Boston Red Sox in 2013 (Boston Marathon) and, most recently, the Houston Astros in 2017 (Hurricane Harvey).

Vegas Golden Knights are not bronze for a reason.

Then again, it's fair: Every American-born citizen has at least visited Las Vegas once in their lifetimes, much like visiting Disneyland.

Congratulations to the Vegas Golden Knights for winning the NHL Stanley Cup!
