What should Glendale do about the Coyotes?
This is going to be about the City of Glendale and their plan to keep the Coyotes playing in that city.
Do not get me wrong, I love sports, I am a fan.
Baseball is No. 1, closely followed by football. I can sit at a Diamondbacks game, at the ballpark and really relax. I can have a hot dog if I choose, talk with the people around me, I love going to the ballpark in person.
Football is a different story. I prefer to watch football on TV. I see more of the game, I see it closer than I can afford as far as seating. I am still a fan but the hot dogs, though without the kraut, come from my own kitchen.
Now, the other two sports that vie for my feelings and attention.
Basketball, a group of mostly black athletes, heavily tattooed, who can fly through the air, and hockey, a group of mostly white athletes, heavily armored, who can fly on ice.
I enjoy both sports but I don't go to games, If I did it would probably be hockey.
I prefer them both on TV and then only at playoff time. I did watch the Stanley Cup playoffs and rooted for OUR team.
What should Glendale be willing to trade for ownership of a hockey team? Should they be willing to trade additional cops on the street?
Should they be willing to trade raises for school teachers?
If the new owner wannabes of the Coyotes really want to be here they should be able to finance the purchase without the budget cuts and additional taxes on residents.
Now what to do with that arena? Well, now there's a conundrum.
What do you think?
Just answer here or on my show Saturday and Sunday nights at 7 p.m.
