A final 🧵 on #SB1 of the 35th Special Session of the #NVLeg. We spent 8 days on the bill, along with the time spent on it during the 82nd regular session. It received three separate hearings, two of which were committees of the whole. No other bill received that type of vetting.
After favorable amendments in both the Senate & the Assembly, 38 of 63 legislators voted for it. And the Governor signed it. While I can't speak for anyone else, I voted yes because I believe the investment is worth the risk to further solidify Nevada's economic future.
This was the only realistic chance for Las Vegas to obtain an MLB franchise, which was always going to require a public private partnership. While an expansion team might have been possible, I am certain the cost would have been much higher & it would have taken many more years.

With the more recent interest in the #NVLeg, particularly when it comes to #SB1 relating to the #Athletics, please allow me to provide some context related to the 35th Special Session and the #NVLeg generally. A 🧵:
Per the Nevada Constitution, the #NVLeg meets every other year for 120 days. We are a citizen legislature, meaning that nearly every legislator has another job. About 75% of Nevada legislators live in Las Vegas, 430 miles from the capitol in Carson City.
The drive from Las Vegas to Carson City is 7 hours. The flight from Las Vegas to Reno is about an hour and then you have to drive about 30 minutes down to Carson City. Air service between Las Vegas and Reno has been atrocious this session, with constant delays/cancellations.

Bud Selig was on record as thinking the #Athletics moving to Oakland was a mistake, because it somehow "hurt" the #Giants. That's silly.

The SF/Oakland/Berkeley metropolitan area is 13th-largest in the USA. Add in the South Bay, which also has fans, and it'd be 6th-largest.
The SF Bay Area is in no way a one-team market. The #Giants didn't have any right to be the only one just because "we were here first!"

Keep in mind they almost moved to another state twice, first.

Remember it was the #Athletics who offered South Bay rights to let them stay.
Also note that Selig undoubtedly helped his frat brother Lew Wolff get in as part of the #Athletics front office.

Say what you will about their seriousness, but they had multiple stadium sites they tried to make progress on, including Fremont and San Jose.

1/Tonight, for the 17th time in the last 50 years, the #StanleyCup champion returns to defend their crown. This time, the #TBLightning are going for that rare feat - a three-peat and #dynasty status.
2/Three-peats and dynasties themselves are relatively rare. Below is a tour of the dynasties from the last 50 years starting with the 1974 Oakland #Athletics completing a three-peat with a 4-1 win over the #Dodgers with this home run.

Nació en la Unión Soviética, pero se convirtió en una leyenda de #Usa. Si la comparáramos con alguien de los Olímpicos sería como fusionar a Bolt con Kipchoge. Ella es la reina del atletismo paralímpico: señoras y señores, con ustedes, Tatyana McFadden.
#Paralympics #Athletics Image
Tatyana vio la luz en Leningrado el 21 de abril de 1989. Era una época convulsa en ese coloso rojo, que veía como el mundo que había imaginado comenzaba a colapsar. La pequeña no cayó en este mundo en el mejor momento posible y lo notaría en sus primeros años de existencia...
La soviética nació con espina bífida, lo que la llevó a tener que vivir en una silla de ruedas. Sin embargo, su familia era muy pobre y no podía darle los tratamientos médicos que necesitaba, por lo que la dejaron en un orfanato.

A fantastic start to the Games, thanks to @mirabai_chanu. A silver 🥈 that was a result of a single-minded journey from Rio to Tokyo.

In #Badminton...

Imagine being Satwik & Chirag. They won 2 out of 3 matches, losing only against the world's best. They defeated the pair that would go on to win 🥇 & incredibly, their campaign was over in group stage.

Otra vez las doñas se robaron el atletismo. Se destaca en el masculino los 400 c/v y el show del salto alto. Por lo de demás ellas, como viene siendo de algunos años ya coparon la pista y campo.
Me encantó que Fraser-Pryce y Elaine Thompson corrieran el 2-3 en la posta de Jamaica. Súper Star dejando a otras. Lo mismo para Makwala saliendo de los tacos. Yulimar Rojas y Mamona dos idolas.
La garrocha masculina es la prueba de los “amigos”. Una lástima lo de Kendricks. Los 100m masculinos para el olvido. de Grasse merecía El Oro, y si es vs Lyles mejor. Los cubanos (bajo su bandera u otra) siguen demostrando que nacieron para esto. Bahamas y los 400!!!

Los 400m la posta y los vallistas.
USA(m) hace oro con Rai Benjamín en el relevo.
USA(f) hace oro con McLaughlin y Dalilah Muhaamad. Últimamente ha cambiado mucho el biotipo de los velocistas y va a ser más común que hace 15 años. McLeod sentó precedente en la 4x100.
En el ante pasado mundial de atletismo del 2017, Jamaica a último momento decide poner a los tacos a un especialista en largadas, Omar McLeod, pero un atleta que siempre hizo el 110.
En uruguay, lo hemos visto varias veces haciéndolo a Andrés Silva en el 4x400. (Recordman nacional en ambas pruebas). En un JJOO es más extraño, pero parece que nos vamos a tener que acostumbrar.
