It was beautiful.
Went back and watched the last few minutes on GameCenter...beautiful is right. Their tears are delicious.

Next expansion is going to be to "slam dunk" cities, not to a boom/bust like Houston. Seattle getting a team is somewhere between a likelihood and a poorly-kept secret at this point. Québec will be milked for comically large relocation and/or expansion fees. Prior failures like Atlanta, Phoenix, and whoever flops next (Dallas? Miami?) have made everyone a bit more conservative about the whole "new markets" thing.
