a love letter to the phoenix coyotes

(you knew this was coming....)
;)


dear beloved desert dogs

i am writing to thank you and congratulate you on embarassing the vancouver canucks last night. you proved that they can be pretty decent in the garage but as soon as they don the whites, they forget how to play hockey...

that tikhonov goal was something of legend; letting the opposition think they're gonna gain some ground on a delayed penalty call (by getting an extra skater on the ice), then taking advantage of the empty net and the wording of the nhl rulebook? letter perfect... did gretzky come up with that play ??? also, that lombardi goal was mighty pretty... you must really love those new young'uns...

anyhow. i really appreciate your efforts last night. sorry about bryzgalov losing his shutout in the final frame.

anyhow, take good care this summer ---say hey to matty for me... tell him we miss him a ton up here in flamesville... especially on the PK....

sincerely,
walkinvisible

i was SO content with the phoenix win, the humiliating own-goal, and matty's beauty, i fell into a deep, deep sleep and didn't wake well into morning....

**(i meant matty's beauty GOAL but the funny part is that it's just as accurate a statemement the way i wrote it...)

The coverage of that goal was hilarious. When they confirmed the review, the camera showed Wayner just shrug and mouth, "Really, huh." Watching them report Tikhonov's goal while he's sitting behind the glass of the penalty box was freakin' hilarious.

As much as the hockey sucks, the weather's great out here on the coast (so far). And before you tell me to go enjoy my vacation (I am), I get ready way too fast and end up with a ton of spare time for blogwatching.
