You remember hockey?â†µ
It's a fast game. They play on ice (which is slippy). They wear sharp skates so they go really fast on the ice. They hit the small, hard puck with big sticks, resulting in a blinding black blur flying around the rink.
They even have quick tempers and fast hands and their sport has wisely accepted the appeal of violence and rewards guys who love to drop the gloves, yank sweaters over heads, and pound opponents in the face. It's MMA on ice with sticks and a net (and no kicking, that would be too bloody).â†µ
The other thing about hockey? No timeouts.â†µ
They play only three quarters instead of four and have no long halftime like other American sports. And no, baseball doesn't count, for obvious reasons.â†µ
This creates a problem for fans attending games -- not enough time to stand in line to buy nachos, beer and Canadian bacon sandwiches.â†µ
The Coyotes brain trust has looked this problem straight in the eye and
punched it senseless provided a cutting-edge solution.
Too bad they can't also find a way to move their arena to a better location in town or find an owner for their team.â†µ
The Desert Dogs are one of the first teams to employ the Bypass system in the arena which, all joking aside, sounds totally flippin' awesome!!â†µ
All you do is whip out your fancy phone. Order your grub. Pay. Get a text telling you it's ready. Get your a$$ up and pick up your food. Run back to your seat before someone's teeth get knocked out. Feed. Repeat.â†µ
