Among the elite

The Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference is an annual conference hosted and wholly independently funded by private investment firm Allen & Company. The conference has taken place in Sun Valley, Idaho for one week each July since 1983. The conference typically features business leaders, political figures, and major figures in the philanthropic and cultural spheres.
Among those in attendance? One Gary Bettman, who looks like he's got quite the batch of summer reading material to go home with him.
Cooperation, not mutual destruction, is a major theme at this year's summer gathering of the media and technology elite in Sun Valley.
Maybe he can sell the Predators to that Facebook kid.

The photo of Bettman with his nametag is pricelss. What's the over/under for how many conference attendees not only asked Gary who? but also quiped The NHL? Didn't you guys fold a couple years ago?

99% of th epeople there would not have recognized Roger Godel or Bud Selig, either. Nor would they recognize most of each other. CEO's and sports executives are not exactly Brad and Angelina, you know.

I love the theme: "cooperation, not mutual destruction." Maybe Bettman will actually learn something at the conference.
