It’s time to face it, hockey fans. Hard as it is to believe, for the second time in a decade, there probably won’t be a NHL season thanks to this stupid lockout.
I hope I’m wrong. I love hockey. Not only is it great to watch, but it’s also fun to write about. But I’m not keeping my hopes up any longer. The players and owners are just being stupid, now, and nobody seems to realize that, in the United States, the NHL’s main competitor for TV ratings isn’t the NBA—it’s the World Series of Poker.
In any case, I’ll miss the NHL when they finally pull the plug. However, today I’m going to try to find the silver lining by doing this list of things we won’t miss when the NHL season kicks the bucket. Because, seriously, for all the great things we love about hockey, there are also some things that annoy us.
So let’s get started, shall we?
