Sooner Than Later

Today everyone and his brother has heard from someone, spoken to a source or read it on the internet as to when the NHL will return to action, action o the ice.

December, January 2013, October 2013 and even October 2014 are some of the dates being tossed around.

I don't buy any of it, when it happens it happens but what I do know is sooner than later, no one will be talking about the NHL.  Even die-hard fans are getting more and more upset with this lockout that never should have happened.

Bettman and Fehr, the future of the NHL is on your shoulders and truthfully, I don't feel good about that.

I honestly can’t remember what I did during the last lockout. I only know this: I wasn’t THIS apathetic about the whole thing. I just don’t care anymore. In fact, I’ve found that I like how much other stuff I get done without the NHL to obsess about.

The apathy up here, in Northern Michigan / Northern Ontario, is shocking. The NHL is talked about now only in passing, and the conversations are not lengthy; usually a roll of the eyes says it all. I’ve even heard a local radio station say they would not report on the lockout anymore, because “no one cares”.

When you’ve more or less alienated some of the most knowledgeable and passionate fans the game has, you’ve basically accomplished the impossible.

I’m not even really upset any more. I still hope the players don’t get reamed by the owners again, but when hockey is back it’s back… there’s plenty of other fun stuff to do in life while these billionaires bicker with millionaires.
