Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE
For Coyotes fans, today is one of the most important days in franchise history. At 7PM tonight the Glendale City Council will hold their monthly meeting, in which they will vote on whether or not to approve the revised lease agreement with Greg Jamison. If you get off work early and can make it out, come decked out in Coyotes gear and show your support. The meeting is at Glendale City Hall, 5850 West Glendale Avenue, Glendale, AZ. If you can't make it, we will be live-tweeting throughout the meeting. In today's links we also have some old-school brawling by the Portland Pirates, some lockout news regarding federal mediation, and a Coyotes' prospect with an...interesting bowling style.
