Phoenix Coyotes

Breakfast Served With A Little Coyote Victory

Phoenix Coyotes Normally I like a soft pretzel or even a churro with my hockey but Saturday morning it was eggs and bacon. Beer was considered but orange juice seemed the more prudent choice.

With the boys away in Prague, those of us not fortunate enough to be able to cross the globe to watch them found a good option at Breakfast with The Coyotes at 18 degrees in Scottsdale. Around 300 fans showed up to watch the team play and for the most of the 1st period it was standing room only! Proof that the underdogs are growing their fan base, well worth having to lean against a gate to get a view of the TV screen.

It was there that the season opened with some great play, solid goaltending from Ilya Bryzgalov, a respectable scrap out of Vern Fiddler and some rookie watching. Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson say a lot of ice time and I am of the opinion that the organization is testing his fortitude. After all NHL play can be very intimidating especially to a 19 year old. We will see how he fares over the next few games.

It’s been suggested that last season was just a fluke and that the Phoenix Coyotes couldn’t repeat the success they had last season. With their impressive preseason and 5-2 win against the Bruins it seems that they are well on their way…never mind the silly loss on Sunday 3-0.

The home opener on Saturday the 16th is a true grudge match against the Detroit Red Wings who beat out our boys during the first round of playoffs last season. I expect a good show and a soft pretzel.

  1. I prefer the malt, the Sharks seem to score more frequently when I’m eating a malt than any other snack item.

  2. Malts?? What? We only have that ridiculously overpriced (and not very tasty) dippin dots..I am so jealous.

    I am going to respectfully ask that you refrain from any malt drinking when my boys in town :)
