Phoenix LXIX: Thread of LXIX

Gary got his first real franchise
Bought it at a five-and-dime
Paid it 'til his ledgers bled
It's now the Thread of LXIX.

DJ and some guys from school
Had a fund and they tried real hard
Reinsdorf quit and Matt got nowhere
We shoulda known JIG would never get far
Oh when I look back now
Those threads seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best threads of my life.

Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England Puritan
Born in 1599 and died in 1658 September

Duelling witty Thread of 69 Lyrics, here's my entry, as first seen in about thread 65:

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

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
That is completely awesome, I wonder if GJ and GB have had an opportunity to jump the thread and take in some of this good home cooking?

While I think the looming deadline represents the finale if something doesn't come up by next Thursday, I can understand peoples cynicism about it. I think this song that I heard today perfectly encapulates our experiences for the past four years....

I don't get why they do that. When I went to Winnipeg games in the '90s, Jets fans were the class of the league.
