Coyotes Tracks - July 31, 2012 - Another Hurdle Cleared

What can we say? We've got Olympic spirit.

On Tuesday Maricopa County Judge Robert Oberbillig denied Save Glendale Now claims their ballot initiative was unjustly denied by the city of Glendale. This paves the way for the city sales tax measure to go into effect this week. Also, yesterday Coyotes beat reporter Sarah McClellan reported Shane Doan and Greg Jamison did indeed speak to one another over the weekend. In addition to links on both of the previously mentioned stories we've got more Coyotes related links, as well as one on former Coyote Danny Briere amongst the our assortment of links from around the hockey universe. Enjoy.
