Kukla's Korner Hockey

Feeling like a social misfit these days, like you’re a square peg trying to fit into a round-peg world? Then like me, you were probably a devoted follower of the National Hockey League playoffs. Loving the Stanley Cup was not a popular pastime the past two months. The NBA is hot and the NHL is not. Want to scatter a crowded street corner? Just bring up hockey. Discussing the game is a lot like talking about Big Foot. It’s just a rumor you hear about secondhand because nobody’s actually seen it in person. Welcome to Must Flee TV. These days in the professional sporting world, NASCAR has replaced the NHL in that elite big four group with MLB, the NFL and the NBA. Nationally, you never hear hockey brought up anymore. On ESPN Radio, it has become a joke and a punch line. On my radio show, other than its cult followers, hockey talk doesn’t generate a real buzz.more...hmmm, maybe the Preds should move...
