Why did they announce this on a Friday? Now we have to wait all weekend to find out if the Lynx are moving to Rochester, at least for one year.
Though there were plausible denials in the news stories today, the news release below sure makes it seem that they've all but loaded the moving trucks. Hope they've told the Lynx people how to find their way through the construction zone to get to the right Civic Center lobby:
