tbirds Well, the T-birds’ season ended on Friday in Tri-cities as I feared. I mentioned that I’ve been in denial about their move 25 miles south to Kent. Well, it turns out there is a small speck of good news:

The T-Birds will leave Key- Arena, their home since the 1989-90 season, in favor of the more hockey-friendly Kent Events Center during the 2008-09 season. The arena is scheduled to open in January 2009, so the team expects to play some games at KeyArena while construction on the 6,025-seat Kent arena is completed.

I’ll take it!
