The city of Phoenix can use an ambassador to try and fill the seats in the stadium. It just so happens the Coyotes have one of the most popular players in the league on their roster in Paul Bissonnette. Talk about a guy who knows how to use Twitter (@BizNasty2point0) as an athlete.
It might have taken awhile, but the two have come together to help spread the world of hockey to the people of Phoenix. (What are they called, Phoenixers? Phoenixonians?)
With that, I introduce Professor Paul. It's sort of like the old feature on Late Night with Jay Leno called Jay-Walking, just with Bissonnette and hockey. Who wouldn't want to watch that?
Here are the first two episodes of Professor Paul quizzing the Phoenicians (there it is!).
I don't think it will surprise many to see the good folks of Phoenix aren't the sharpest knives in the hockey drawer.
Also, Bissonnette, who appears to be a bit of a ladies’ man based on his tweets, couldn't pass up the chance to hit on one of the ladies. I literally laughed out loud when he plowed through an awful pickup line I've never heard: "How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice. Hi, I'm Paul," with a big smile.
Well done, Professor Paul. Well done.
