The AHL flanks most of you in OKC, and in your neighborhood in Austin and San Antonio.
I would flat-out argue that the city of Austin deserves the NHL franchise way before Houston does. The last thing the league wants now is for another failure reminiscent of Atlanta.
Too hot for ice.
Sorry. No Big Five for you.
You guys are okay on the indoor sports with the likes of the Hot Rockets. Hot Rockets are done within two minutes. Salty or sweet, no need to melt the ice. I hope knowing that the hockey just vacates is an ice breaker enough for you.
