    Word on the street is that the Kings are going to Seattle. Louisville’s best bet to capitalize on the economic potential of professional sports is through extending pro-sports wagering to competitors on 2 legs. The 1992 PASPA act is blatantly unconstitutional and the special gaming priviledges granted to 4 States, jai alai, horse and dog racing will never hold up in court. Downtown Louisville and Churchill Downs should be full of travellers visiting Louisville to bet on the NFL playoff games this week.
