Daily Dish: Coyote Ugly
Coyote Ugly Definition:
1) Waking up from a drunken stupor to find that your sexual partner of the previous night is not only ghastly, but is sleeping with his/her head resting on your arm. The only way to escape, without waking the beast, is to chew off your arm and flee.
Dude, that girl you picked up at the bar was coyote ugly.
2) Spending all summer running from camp to camp, try-out to try-out, and finally ending up in Pt. Huron. Drunk with enthusiasm, the player begins the season with his head held high. By Thanksgiving two-thirds of the team is exploring other options, even considering sitting out the remainder of the season.
Dude, that team sucks, you would be better off coming back home to work at McDonalds.
3) Spending hard-earned money for season tickets to Pt. Huron NAHL games. Punch drunk with disappointment, the family decides that volunteering to clean the school urinals is a more meaningful experience than watching the team drop another 12-0 or 18-3 game at the arena.
Mom and Dad, I know that we have tickets to the game, but cleaning the urinals will be a more positive experience.
How bad can it be? It is worse. The nightmare continues for the North American Hockey League owners that were convinced by Ernie Hicke that he could put a competitive team on the ice, without tenders or a single draft pick. Hopefully there are enough midget players in Pt. Huron to help the Fledgling Falcons fill out the roster and complete the season.
Here is what the fans are saying:
Section 10:It is time to mix things up. There needs to be a coaching change made immediately. This organization is dying at a rapid rate. It needs new blood. Operate before it becomes to late and dies. Ernie and Shane please put your egos aside and give Jeff Blum a chance.
Falconwatcher: So, how do you reward our North Division honoree....TRADE HIM!!!
Another great move by the Hicke's. Keep the moron twins (14 and 20) and momma's boy (13) and all the other idiots that look like monkey's humping a football, and trade away one of the few guys with experience in the league and any hockey sense on this team.
I've tried to remain positive and give the coaches the benefit of the doubt with their late start, etc, but moves like these show how little they know about what they're doing. I'm done with this team - time to drive to Flint or Trenton on Fri and Sat nights and watch the good Michigan teams in this league.
Want a grand solution? Move Mark Frankenfeld to Pt Huron to operate and the team.

Not trying to hate on perkins', he seems like a great kid, but he set himself up for this. He played two years in this league solely because his dad got involved in the organization to make sure that not only did jimmie make the team, but he played as much as he desires. Perkins' dad frequently threatened to fire the albert lea coach when he didn't play jimmie as much as he wanted. When the whole corruption scandal finally burst open, Jimmie was unable to stay in the league because he no longer had his dad to assure his spot, and nobody else wanted him. Jimmie knew exactly what he was getting into by trying out for this team, the only reason he did so was because odds were that he would get cut from all other nahl teams. If Jimmie truly wants to play college hockey he should go play tier 3, where he could more easily showcase his talents and show why he deserves a spot.
