Here are some damn fine reasons you should check out our minor-league hockey franchise, the Phoenix RoadRunners of the ECHL, as they begin the 2008-09 season:
it was Arizonas first professional sports franchise.
its one of the most storied, hoisting championship trophies following the 1972-73 and 1973-74 campaigns.
tickets are dirt cheap, starting at $8.
the RoadRunners are not the bumbling Coyotes who you have to trek out to the middle of Nowheresville Glendale to see.
they are not the bumbling Coyotes who have sucked ass for the past six seasons.
Convinced yet? Then check out the Runners when they open the new season against the Victoria Salmon Kings.
