Is Armageddon Next?

Over the past couple of weeks, deeply alarming and unusual events have threatened the very foundation of human existence.

Consider the following:

The Arizona Screaming Weasels, officially known as the Phoenix Coyotes, nee Winnipeg Jets won a playoff series.

Not only did they win a playoff series, they beat someone other than the Calgary Flames.

Never before in their NHL history has this happened.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Weasels won a game in the second round of the playoffs.

Again, it was a history-making event. The NHL Jets never once accomplished this gargantuan feat.

Then they won another game in the second round of the playoffs.

And a third.

These events support only one logical conclusion.

The world is about to end.

Or perhaps not.

But it’s probably a much greater foreshadowing of the pending Armageddon than someone reading tarot cards in the back of a coffee shop.

Winnipeggers thought Armageddon was coming when the Jets left in 1996. Maybe now it is.

Stay tuned.

  1. It's a shame people from Arizona will only have a year or so to celebrate the success of the Coyotes playoff run, before they pack up and move to Quebec City.
