Phoenix LXIX: Was the Thread of '69:

...Oh when Gary looks back,
That franchise seemed to last forever,
And if he just could sell it,
Yeah, the NHL wanted to stay there,
Darcy's cupcakes were the best of his life
I second that motion for Phoenix LXIX, and submit the following lyrics to Glendale-ize Bryan Adams' masterpiece:

I signed my first real lease thing
Glendale thought it was a sign
Delayed until the deal went dead
Was before Thread Number Sixty-nine

DJ and some guys from school
Had a plan and they tried real hard
Investors quit, Beasley got queasy
Shoulda known they’d never get far

Oh when I look back now
This saga seemed to last forever
And if they had the choice
Yeah, no owner wants to be there

Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in complaining
When Goldwater’s Jobbing you
Matty’s plan was brain-dead simple
Just buy the parking with an I.O.U. Yeah!

Sign it on the dotted line
These two weeks won’t last forever
But nobody has the coin
The NHL says now or never

Those were the best days of my life
Oh yeah
It happened before Thread Sixty-nine
Oh!

Man, they were killing time
They were getting restless
Greg showed up just in time
I guess Glendale is screwed forever
Forever, no!

And now the council’s changing
Look at all the owners come and gone
Sometimes when Joyce Clark is sober
She thinks about it, wonders what went wrong

Sign it on the dotted line
These two weeks won’t last forever
But nobody has the coin
The NHL says now or never

Those were the best days of my life
Oh Yeah
Back before Thread Number Sixty-nine
Oh Yeah
Jamison is turning Sixty-nine
