Coyotes Weekly: Gearing Up for the Trade Deadline

The 2019-20 NHL trade deadline is right around the corner, and, with the Arizona Coyotes’ playoff hopes being very much up in the air at the current point in time, general manager John Chayka may be considering adding to his roster this year after a relatively quiet deadline in 2019.

Where to stop on Margarita Mile

Move over, pub crawls, there’s a new boozy tour in town, or at least there is in Dallas. It’s no wonder that the city that invented the frozen Margarita machine has a self-guided tour on which this frosty beverage is the star of the show. Although Carlos Herrera invented the Margarita in 1938 at his Baja California restaurant Rancho La Gloria, the machine that mixes icy Margs first appeared in Dallas in 1971. With a dedicated app and signature cocktails for participants to taste, the Margarit...

The EC and the ERLC: A Dangerous Overreach

First, the disclaimer. I’m on the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) Leadership Council. Which by the way, and contrary to the belief of some phone calls I have received, has no authority or power at the ERLC but is a group of about 80 people who were nominated / chosen to “receive intentional investment from the ERLC and serve as ambassadors for the organization.” You can read more about the Leadership Council HERE. I suppose it should be said that I have come full circle in my appr...

How a Lakers coaching staff of strangers blended to lead the West’s top team

CHICAGO — The Lakers might not be where they are today if not for a very crucial task that helps keep them humming. It’s an area that falls under the expertise of assistant coach Mike Penberthy, who once won a title with the Shaq-and-Kobe-era Lakers. When coaching staff meetings invariably bog down with the minutiae of game planning, he’s often the one who makes the decision to shake things up. “I’ll be like, ‘You know what, I think we need some donuts today,’” he said. “I’ll grab one of the you...

Oilers Call Up Bouchard: What Does It Mean?

With the news Oscar Klefbom would be out a couple of weeks with a bum shoulder, the Edmonton Oilers have once again looked to their AHL team in Bakersfield for a short-term solution, calling up highly-touted defense prospect Evan Bouchard. The move is considered interesting, if not a bit controversial. This is not to say that calling up Bouchard isn’t the right decision. An argument can be made he’s the best available option to replace a player like Klefbom. But, with a priority placed on ri...

Are The Dallas Stars A Serious Cup Contender?

from Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News, Twenty years feels like a long enough time to wait for a return to the Stanley Cup Final. And the Dallas Stars — a team that was in disarray in October and lost its coach in December — seem determined to do something about it. In the last 10 days, the Stars have ended a disastrous dry spell against St. Louis, picked up a hat trick from Jamie Benn against Carolina and then rolled through Canada to collect five of a possible six points to t...
