I’m not going to really talk about the game. Mainly because it will make me want to maim people and I can’t go to jail before the Meet the Players event on the 19th because I need to get Kerri’s Prucha jersey signed for her. Responsibility! Anyways here is the nutshell of the game, followed by some pictures, followed by something nice to end with.
We lost. To the Red Wings. Fuckers. Uppy got hurt and it kind of freaked me out. I love our team and them getting seriously hurt would be horrendous. Hockey is dangerous yo. Maybe the Czechs should take up something a bit more kind, like knitting?
Peter Mueller showed some flashes of brilliance in the first period. He was attacking the dudes with the puck and checked a dude pretty good. Go Pete!
Lombo scored! Go Bo!
The rest shall not really be talked about for the aforementioned reason.
I want to end this with something good. There are a lot of people that like the Coyotes. A ton of people that I follow on Twitter have adopted us as their second team. Some like us because we are the underdog. Some like us because we’re scrappy. Some like us because we have Prucha (@nhtproductions, @prukachu, @somelikeitblue @isakft I’m looking at you! #PruchaWars). Whatever the reason, we are getting popular.
More people are starting to come to games. It’s exciting that a buzz is starting to swirl around the boys. I thought I’d share something that happened in the past week. Before the Kings game, I met a couple from Canada who came down to visit. He was a Sens fan and she was a Leafs fan. Don’t ask me how they got married, those are two teams that don’t have love for each other! Anyways, I met them. They were super cool people, really nice. They remarked about Westgate and the building and kind of how good we had it here. I saw them before the Canucks game too. They came back! Low and behold, I saw them before the Sharks game. And Jason had on a Coyote shirt! I said, oh my god, he’s rocking the apparel! He was like yep, they’re my favorite team in the West now! Yay converts!
The moral of the story is that our team is damn good and damn endearing. If people don’t already love us, they will watch us and then love us. Unless we beat their asses, then they may not love us (right Sharks fans?). We will have fans in the desert and we will support our team and they will stay.
I say this in the name of our Lord, Shane Doan. Amen.
