Imponderable #86: Phoenix Arizona

22 Mar

March 22, 2013

I am a sports fan. (Except for basketball. Other than the pick and roll I have no patience for a game that goes an hour, the teams score over a hundred points, and a game is typically won by les than ten points. Seems to me this could have been decided in ten minutes. Even hard-core fans tell you that the first half, if not first three quarters, are a waste of time.)

Baseball is my game, followed by hockey. Living in New York, I can tell you that there is no better sports experience than seeing the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Even if the Hockey Ron-jays (any Steve Sommers fans out there?) getting blown out there is no better place to watch a game. Soon the Islanders are moving to my neck of the woods (Brooklyn) but I’m still going to be loyal to the Broadway Blues.

A lot better than being a Phoenix Coyotes fan.


I wish more businesses operated that way. Mayor/Mommy/Asshat Bloomberg wants to ban big sodas? Why bother? Just make it more profitable for the big soda companies to not sell soda. Assault weapon ban? Why? Just pay the gun companies to not sell guns. Think of all the money they’d save when they could close all those factories.

I have been not selling guns for years. Time for me to make some money at it. Come to think of it, I have also not been putting a hockey team on the ice either. Why should Phoenix get all the cash? Pay me for not putting on a hockey game.

This is America. Most people get paid by the government for not working anyway. Why should the Coyotes be any different?

The question is Imponderable.

    I agree with you about basketball. And with your suggestion on how to make things happen.

    But what I don’t understand is how the hockey team can “only” make money if the lockout continues. Where is money coming from if theyaren’t playing? And don’t they have ongoing expenses other than payroll? I’m confused.

    I hate basketball and though I was a diehard NFL fan for a long time, I hate it now. Baseball is my game too.

    Now, are you a Yankee fan or a Mets’ fan? I’m a huge fan of the Texas Rangers.

      I used to be a huge Mets fan but, starting in 2007, they drained all the passion out of me with their collapses and horrible, disgusting ownership. I barely follow them anymore. I probably can;t name half the current team.

          Never would have gotten D-Arnaud.
