Did you ever watch the show "Arrested Development?"No?
Funny, but nobody else did either.
Oh it was a good show, funny, clever. But it was a ratings disaster and after a while all the write-and-email-the-network efforts didn't save a thing. The show got cancelled.
That's the Phoenix Coyotes. In a supply-and-demand world, there just wasn't enough of the latter to justify the former. And this may sound cruel, but if they indeed do leave, I won't miss them. Not a bit.
There was once a time I took pride in living in a city that sported all four major pro sports franchises. It was cool. And the glory days of Tkachuck, Roenick and the white out truly made the Coyotes relevant.
But I was young. I was oozing spare time. Not anymore.
I could sit here and talk about what a shame it is. Make it sound like a part of my life - even a small part - might be packing up and moving to southern Ontario.
But it would be a lie.
