Thank You Phoenix Coyotes!
As I have resurfaced from my depressed stupor over our game 7 loss against the Detroit Red Wings, I wanted to say “thank you” to The Phoenix Coyotes.
Thank you…for the inspirational never-say-die attitude that shocked the critics and “make it eight” Canadians and got us into the playoffs.
Thank you…Dave Tippett for taking on the monumental task of coaching the “underdogs” of the desert and doing what the “great one” couldn’t do.
Thank you…for always putting on a great show even if it resulted in a loss.
Thank you…for being the inspiration that encouraged my daughter to be a goalie. Next generation Coyote!
Thank you…Coyotes management for bringing on such powerhouse forces such as Lee Stempniak and Wojtec Wolski. Their contributions, even as late in the season as it was, were tremendous.
Thank you…to the NHL and Coyotes management that still believe Phoenix deserves a team in the desert despite lagging attendance numbers and financial woes.
Thank you…to the fans, who like myself, who stayed till the bitter end of game 7 to send out our boys in the fashion which they deserved..a stand ovation and chants of “let’s go Coyotes”.
Thank you…even to the bandwagoners who left at 10 minutes left in the game for at least buying a ticket and supporting the team in a financial sense anyway.
Thank you…in advance, to whomever purchases the Phoenix Coyotes and keeps them where they belong..the valley of the sun.
Here’s to a fantastic 2009-2010 season and a promising 2010-2011 one..GO YOTES!
