Wrestlemania vs. Paul McCartney: Why Glendale Needs to be Superplexed Through a Table
On nights when events at both University of Phoenix Stadium and Jobing.com Arena are booked simultaneously, Glendale becomes hell on earth.
As you may or may not know, the Arizona Cardinals play their home games at University of Phoenix Stadium. The Phoenix Coyotes play their home games at Jobing.com Arena -- which is in Glendale, for those keeping tabs on the Phoenix Coyotes.
Football and hockey are fall and winter sports, respectively, and the seasons overlap by only a few months (October-January). Since the Cardinals only play home games on either a Sunday or a Monday (or a Saturday or Thursday, if the Playoffs/NFL Network dictate as such), there is very little cause for concern regarding both venues being booked at the same time.
As I was trying to leave the Giants game in 2008, the traffic coming in for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concerts was so bad that I was seriously considering throwing it all away and just slowly slipping off the face of the earth for a while.Nothing I was witnessing -- as car after car piled into the University of Phoenix Stadium parking lots -- gave me an ounce of faith in humanity. I would have rammed my car into a basket full of newborn panda bears had it allowed me to just get the fuck out of that asphalt nightmare. And who did I have to thank for all of this? Fucking Glendale.
