Behold: Jobing.com Arena

Welcome to the spacious interior of Glendale, Arizona’s Jobing.com Arena, one of my favorite buildings in the National Hockey League to comfortably work in. There are extremely tight quarters in some of the league’s press boxes – I feel I’m a sneeze away from getting whistled for elbowing in St. Louis, Vancouver and Detroit – yet here in the Glendale press box, which stretches the length of the building – I’m afforded ample space, a cubby to place my backpack, and a second intermission hot dog. Bell’s Oberon is on tap at the nearby Yardhouse, and if you’ve ever spent a summer in Michigan, you know the significance of such a luxury. Back to hockey. Pictured to the right in the below photo was the net into which Dustin Penner scored his game-winning goal that sent the Kings into the Stanley Cup Final.
