Oakland Raiders Apply to Move to Las Vegas

Ken Belson, The New York Times:

After decades of shunning Las Vegas, the American city most closely associated with gambling, the N.F.L. has moved a lot closer to having a team there. On Thursday, the Oakland Raiders applied to move there, a bid that will force the league, which has been stridently opposed to sports gambling for decades, to consider approving it.

Surely a sign of the End of Days. First Trump, now this.

I kid. Though they won’t win any more games in Vegas than they did in Oakland, if this means game-by-game betting is a wee closer to approval I’m all for it.
