CRYSTAL GAZING, LUCK AMAZING

"In the year of the millennium the bear will travel down from the northland and take up residence n the new city of pharoahs." Nostradamus never said this. Still, there is at least one eerie omen predicting the relocation of the Vancouver Grizzles to Memphis. The second and third pages of the team's 2000/2001 yearbook are devoted to a full-color ad for the film 3000 Miles to Graceland starring Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell as Elvis- impersonating bad guys. Vancouver is exactly 2,492 miles from Graceland. Coincidence? We think not.
