Early Planning for Stars Party
DALLAS (AP) _ No matter that the Dallas Stars are still playing _ it’s time to plan another victory party.
The Dallas City Council’s Public Safety Committee on Monday unanimously recommended a parade and rally for the defending champions if they win the NHL title again.
The full council was expected to consider the proposal Wednesday.
``We don’t know that the Stars are going to win the cup, so this is in some ways a hypothetical discussion at this point,″ Mike Rawlings, president of Pizza Hut and chairman of a planning committee for a celebration, told The Dallas Morning News. ``This is a `what-if’ scenario.″
The best-of-seven series with the Colorado Avalanche was 2-2 entering Game 5 Tuesday night.
A victory party would be similar to last year’s and cost about $235,000, Rawlings said. Supporters hope to finance the celebration with corporate donations.
