Brief

Domebeer-aholics, we are working on the Flames Roundtable. Most likely, it will drop tomorrow.

Manny Pacquiao's a member of Congress now. In the Philippines, no less. Congratulations. Diplomatic immunity will not save you from a Money May beatdown, however.

Lindsay 'Slut' Lohan got into a 'catfight' with Canada's own Avril 'Ugly' Lavigne. Cosmetic surgery and vodka were the winners.

Know what happens when you build a stadium when you don't have any tenants? The tenants get to dictate terms. We have seen this in our backyard with regards to the Abbotsford Heat. Abbotsford understood their situation, and took a bad deal just to keep their one and only tenant. The City of Glendale hates reality apparently, because it took the opposite tact, and tried to act like it had leverage in the negotiations with Ice Edge Holdings. The result? Kansas City or Winnipeg will be enjoying NHL hockey next year.

Something sweet? Here you go:



Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.

  1. I was going to write something comparing the Glendale situation to Abbotsford, but it looks like you've done that for me.

  3. lolz, have at it. I think the whole situation is very sad. I spend time down in Arizona and I have to tell you, the Coyotes thang is just a mess. Most of the sports stadiums are in the middle of the state, and so everybody can kind of get to it. The hockey stadium is in the corner of the state, and it really cuts the market in half, because for people like me who are in the south of the state, you just arent making the trip up to Glendale. It takes too long, and the cops are hard, so you cant really enjoy a few beverages and drive home. It is just a mess, and it looks like amateur hour to me. I feel for the people there, but that team can't survive in Glendale. The stadium should be with the basketball and baseball ones, and it isnt.

    And on top of that Glendale has, in my opinion, idiot negotiators. They didn't want to give up concession revenue and stuff like that, which is cool, if you have a bargaining chip, which they dont. I hope they know something I dont. Like I said I spend time down there and would rather a hockey team in the state than in Manitoba, but Im selfish.

  5. Pacquiao's stance on marginal corporate tax rates, to me made him an unacceptable candidate. The Philippines needs a wild rose revolution!
