Last night's school board meeting..

January 19, 2022 01:17PM
was interesting, to say the least.. we had a HUGE turnout of Coyote alumni wearing red and black, carrying stuffed Wiley Coyote dolls, huge Coyote banners, framed photos of past coach and player legends - you name it.. we had former players, former city counsel members, lawyers, 75 year old former cheerleaders etc... it was a REALLY great turnout..

So, of course, there were about 8 people there with the sole intent of threatening the school board into doing what they wanted - which was to kill the Coyotes.. Ironically, they stated WE were the privileged crybabies who always got what they wanted and they never got anything..

It was soooooo weird.. when people walked up to speak, you could TELL what side they were on just by their faces.. the pissed off crew all looked - I dunno - somewhat psycho.. a couple of them were SO pissed their voices cracked while talking.. They made accusations, they told outright lies, and they provided personal attack son some of our speakers, who had already spoken.. seriously - 75-80 year old women being personally attacked strictly because they wanted to save the Coyotes.. I wanted to punch every single one of them in the face.. I have never been so outright disgusted with humanity in my life..

..and the sad thing is what's happening to THEIR school is a done deal, no matter what we propose.. their school is becoming a middle school no matter what we do or say.. think they finally decided to take out their anger on someone and we were the perfect target.. Before we proposed our plan last Thursday, I had not heard ONE word from those people being upset with what was happening..

One lady, a local business owner, literally said that the "only people trying to save the Coyotes are the near dead".. she ragged on us, accused us of copyright infringement (we are not proposing to use the Wiley Coyote image - we only use it because it used to be the mascot and its sentimental to us - they haven't used that image in decades) stated she'd make sure that we were prosecuted for using it - and that the penalty was $150K per violation, which is know is accurate.. and made up a whole bunch more BS.. she got her 3 minutes worth in, for sure..

So, this morning I see everyone on the group I admin for the Coyotes posted to BOYCOTT her local coffee house business.. and that sh*t got shared HUNDREDS of times within minutes.. she pm'd me, at first, threatening if I didn't take it down what all she'd do and I replied that we had MANY local business owners and professionals that would NOT speak or take a public stand for the EXACT same reason - that they didn't want to dig their own business grave.. and I told her when you take a public stand, and actually totally INSULT the people, lie about them, and say we're all "near dead" that there are gonna be repercussions.. But I lightened up and told her to tag me in each post and I would remove it.. AND I DID... But I didn't HAVE to - she couldn't have done a dadgum thing about it, had I left them up, because they didn't violate facebook policy..

So, does she even thank me? No.. she did not.. in fact, she started tagging me in EVERY post she didn't agree with, wanting me to take them ALL down.. there are HUNDREDS of posts she tagged me in to remove that had nothing to do with her and were generally only positive posts about the Coyotes.. Seriously.... why do I even TRY with some people? I won't remove any more of the posts calling for boycotts of her business.. and, in this town, that could seriously do her in.. she's not from here, and has a coffee shop RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM STARBUCKS!

Ok, I'm done venting.. oh, and no word yet from the board..

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
