Well, I guess the nail is officially in the coffin.
I just got the word that the NHL has cancelled the NHL winter classic, originally slated to be in Detroit, Michigan.
I suppose I should have seen this coming.
The saddest part about the NHL strike, amongst many sad parts, is that once the NFL season is done (after the superbowl), I will be devoid of my televised sports. Well, at least until spring training. I cannot wait until baseball season starts again.
My apologies to NBA fans, but I just can’t get behind basketball. I’m Sorry.
So what am I left with? Time to start watching some minor league action. I went to four Vancouver Canadians baseball games last year, and I am a full believer in the whole-heartedness of the minor leagues. These kids have something that has been lacking in the pros, or so the strike has shown us: HEART.
Hmm maybe that’s why I love indie films and indie rock so much… worth pondering…
