Arizona Governor to Meet With Team Owners

Brent FarleyContributor IJune 22, 2009

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is making changes in her new role as Governor.  After former Governor Janet Napolitano left Arizona to become President Obama's Director of Homeland Security, Jan Brewer was next in line for the top office in Arizona politics.  In her first speech after becoming Governor, Brewer promised changes on all fronts.

In a private meeting with all professional team owners in Arizona, sources close to the owners have leaked several topics discussed by the Governor in the four hour long meeting. 

Governor Brewer has tackled the foreclosure issue facing Arizona, as one of the top four states in the union dealing with an out of control foreclosure rate.  She has also tackled the immigration issue and the 3 billion dollar shortfall Arizona has in the budget.

An area Governor Brewer has tackled unexpectedly is in the top sports teams in Arizona.  The Phoenix Coyotes, The Phoenix Suns and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Governor Brewer lashed out at the owners of the Phoenix Coyotes for their crumbling bankrupt organization wondering out loud why hockey came to the desert in the first place.

The Phoenix Suns were berated for the trade for Shaq.  Governor Brewer exclaimed that even she understood a slow man could not keep up with a team who runs!

And the Arizona Diamondbacks were given the silent treatment from the Governor.  She seemed disgusted that the Diamondbacks could find many different ways to lose a game.

Missing from the meeting was the Arizona Cardinals.  With their recent trip to the Superbowl last year, the new Governor believed the team had represented the State of Arizona well.

Governor Brewer ended the meeting by demanding the sports teams make the needed corrections and represent the Grand Canyon State better.  All teams accepted the tone of the meeting and vowed to do a better job.

Although this type of meeting would never happen, and this article is totally false, it would be nice if some teams would understand the embarrassment they bring when they can't find a win!
