me, silver and the silver state. it's just a guess, but that's my guess. radio host brian blessing said the team's owner, bill foley, showed him the logo... but he still hasn't been able to figure out the team name. we were sworn to secrecy. no cameras. no pictures. foley's promise? it's either the silver knights, the desert knights, or the golden knights... but he also doesn't have to stick to his word. in fact... he admits he's the one who put out some of those fake names we've heard out. well first he said he did that. then he said didn't do that. with you... a curveball is possible. i think it's one of the three. the biggest surprise, in this day and age, is that it hasn't been leaked yet... and even the day before... we still couldn't get it out of anyone. i don't want to ruin anybody's holiday or anybody's surprise. adam herbets fox5 news local las vegas>> tonight's event starts at 5:30, the announcement is expected around 6
