Ringing in the New Season

First of all - and with no disrespect toward the Coyotes Organization or Arena staff - that Pacific Division Championship Banner "unveiling" was just... pathetic.

I know we still don't have an owner and thus have no money for pomp & circumstance - but we couldn't at least dim the house lights and RAISE the banner up to the roof? The NHL couldn't at least do that for us all? I was so terribly disappointed with it all...

And it was cooked. Our own players were laughing when it was "unveiled"... come on!

But the take home replicas they gave us were fantastic.

That aside - the most important thing is: hockey is back!!!!

Bonus: They now sell gluten free beer & hot dogs at Arena. It is outside of section 111 at the "Lighter Fare" stand. Please go patronize it. I need beer and hot dogs at hockey games people...

And last - but the farthest thing on EARTH from least - I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our Hockey Family - Izzy - who made an appearance at her first tailgate yesterday. 

She's practicing her intimidation techniques - we think she might have some enforcer in her.

The wait is over!

My boys have finally advanced to the second round of the playoffs - and with a 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks! I know - there is still a long road ahead of them, but tonight I'm going to enjoy this moment.

Tomorrow I'm going to go greet them at airport when they come home (if you'd like to join me, here's the info on when and where). We are going to celebrate the first time our Captain and many of our players have made it to round 2 of the playoffs. And if we lose in the 2nd round, we at least have a Pacific division title and a round one victory. Neither of which we've had in Phoenix before. That's huge. Certainly I hope we go further - and believe them capable of making it all the way to the finals - but I'm happy to celebrate how far we've come.

The entire town is buzzing about this hockey team - they even reported about the ownership situation and the Coyotes win during the 9pm news tonight. That NEVER happens! So whatever the future brings for us, win or lose - I'm proud. I'm happy for the Coyotes fans who have been through 3 years of hell. The fans who have been behind them from day 1. I'm ecstatic that we have something to really celebrate this year. I'm going to allow the ownership situation to take care of itself - because I have faith that it will - and I am going to simply enjoy the ride.

Congratulations Phoenix Coyotes - I couldn't be prouder.
