Phoenix LXXVI: Renaissance Men

Quote:
But there are encouraging signs for Coyotes fans about the future of this franchise. According to a person who has seen the Renaissance Sports and Entertainment business plan, it appears the group’s sole focus is on turning the team around financially and keeping it in Glendale for the long term.

Renaissance Sports and Entertainment is the company formed by prospective buyers George Gosbee, Anthony LeBlanc and their two partners, Daryl Jones and Avik Dey (Ice Edge Holdings is defunct despite continued references to it in media accounts).
What the internet says about Renaissance Clowns:

Quote:
The history of clowns is interesting, especially the clowns of the renaissance. There were some that held court to kings proudly and respectfully. Others seemed to be the poor tools of entertainment forroyalty simply because of their height, weight, or some unknown birth defect. Indeed, being a jester could be a wonderful life, or a day to day struggleof people laughing at you for features that you couldn't control. In those times,they thought you were cursed or had done something to deserve it.

There were also clowns of the stage. They led well paid lives acting out the plays of William Shakespeare as well as other playwrights. Being a clown was an interesting occupation either way, but it seem to be mostly fun and games. They could speak freely on the actions of a king and pretend that it was a joke. That was a privelege indeed. As long as the jesters or fools kept the king happy, they could feast with him, live in the castle, and there was even perform specially for the Pope.

Since fools were well loved by their masters, they might even recieve part of a King's estate if he died. Many kings left things to their beloved jesters in their wills. But being a jester wasn't always fun. Some of them were freaks or dwarves. These poor people were prisoners of kings and queens. They could only hope for a dead master that would leave something to them. Many just wished that their masters were dead.

Many fools were very good at storytelling or fortunetelling. They would go to nearby towns once a week and perform for crowds. They would sometimes put on entire plays. They had to work hard at memorizing the lines since they could perform as many characters in one play, switching rolls constantly.

Along with jesters, there were vice clowns. The vice clowns were first seen in the begining of the renaissance. At that time, many people were extremely serious about religion. The vice was dressed as a devil or demon and represented the Seven Deadly Sins. He was often seen telling heroes evil thoughts or making them disbelieve in themselves. Later on, he started to look rather like a jester. He was ususally an energetic baffoon with a wooden dagger.

And of course, there was always the mime. The mime first started in the renaissance and still continues today. They were mostly in Rome, but gradually spread throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Now they perform on the street or at circuses like most clowns.
Quote:
During the Italian Renaissance, bands of roving theater troupes in Italy called the Commedia del Arté introduced several clown characters to an admiring public, among them Pierrot and Harleqin.
Quote:
It was during the Renaissance that mankind discovered that we are not situated right at the center of the universe, and that we are not even situated anywhere near the center of the universe, and that, in fact, that we are lucky to be situated anywhere, including Birmingham. Clowns became popular again. The awareness that we are a completely irrelevant chance event which is likely to be as easily extinguished just as it began can be mollified by watching someone with huge red shoes squirting someone else with water.

It was also around this time that clowning technology began to improve. The discovery of the rotten tomato in the Dutch East Indies, for example, brought a new dimension to European clown shows. A new standard was also introduced for the definition of custard. Previously, the question of what constituted custard had been left up to local village leaders, and a number of clowns died as a result of pies filled with rocks.

Contrary to popular myth, the red nose was not an invention of the Renaissance. This was invented by the Victorians, because their massive sexual repressions caused them to invent stuff like that and then to deny that they invented it at all.

80:20 rule. I'd bet 20% of the guys account for 80% of those posts. They're just having a regular ol' party in here.

Does that mean we're only half done!?!

"The NHL, owners of the Arizona Coyotes for the 8th straight year, may have a new potential buyer to keep the team in the valley. He may wear clown shoes, but he's planning to buy a home in the Phoenix area!"

I've got a good feeling about this guy...

Ownership absence will likely limit Phoenix Coyotes’ resources to re-sign Mike Smith

To quote:

"The cap floor is set at $44 million for next season. With only 12 NHL contracts currently on their books totaling approximately $39.6 million, the Coyotes have some spending to do.

How they allocate that money is up to them, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

"Team management would have the ability to negotiate and make recommendations as to appropriate contract ‘term’ for league approval," Daly wrote in an e-mail. "So, I wouldn’t agree there are any real limitations on the club’s ability to re-sign Mike Smith, other than those that are related to the team’s overall budget — which is the same situation that most, if not all, clubs deal with on a regular basis.""

Marry! What cutpurse, pray tell, will step forward to stay this madness!

Fare thee well!

Too bad that there will not be any "team management" to sign free agents until the NHL signs some team management.

Phoenix Coyotes would be prudent to keep coach as resourceful as Dave Tippett

"The expiration date on his contract should be a cattle prod for everyone.

“It’s no secret that my wish is to stay here and see this through,” Tippett said. “But I may not have that choice.”

Tippett becomes a free agent on July 1. If there is no new infrastructure in place — i.e., a new owner to re-sign Don Maloney, who will then re-sign Tippett — the popular head coach will be free to go elsewhere. Given Tippett’s handiwork in Arizona, he would be a coveted prize for numerous clubs."

Perchance we may use the pillory on the lot of them at Westgate!

Fare thee well!

Nothing new here, just thought I'd show the latest from Elliotte Friedman (whom I find very respectable and honest):

Quote:
29. This is my guess with Phoenix: Sometime in the next week or so, the NHL is going to work out a "conditional deal" with one of the potential owners. The likely choice is George Gosbee, although Matt Hulsizer and Darin Pastor remain in the picture. But, it's all going to come down to the city of Glendale. The deal Greg Jamison couldn't close isn't available (20 years, $324 million), but is there something else available? That will determine the team's future.

30. If Gosbee does get the team and closes a deal to stay, the belief is Don Maloney and Dave Tippett will stay, too. If it's a different owner, or the team moves, or this takes too long, it's less certain

Wish they would get this resolved. It's dragged on long enough. That said I think they're staying in Phoenix.
