Haven't heard or seen hide nor hair of Talloola for a coon's age! Hope this hockey fiasco hasn't stressed her out.
right now i'm watching a tribute to johnny cash on PBS, superb entertainment. I'm not giving the
NHL my energy right now, still watching some baseball, having fun with my lab puppy along with my daughter
and her lab puppy, at the river, at the ocean, and walking the trails, its still summer here, weather
fantastic, also getting my garden cleaned up and the yard ready for the fall.
i'll turn to the hockey when they decide to cut out the b.s. and talk sense, in the meantime i've got
better things to do, and I won't get stressed about other peoples millions of dollars, they can fight
over that by themselves, cause they don't care about me, and my measely bank account.
That's the spirit! There's not much consideration for the paying fans, the people who have the spin off jobs, the players are getting too greedy and Bettman is a jerk.
You got that right, I've never been one to turn anything down that is there for the taking. However, I think there has to come a time when people have to be realistic. A person should be able to take his family to a hockey game without having to fork out $hundreds. If $1 million isn't enough, is $5 million going to be enough or $10 million? Meanwhile the hot dog vendors are working for probably $10 an hour. Talk about a gap between the rich and poor, that's a good place to start closing it as far as I'm concerned. Bettman could also stand to have his wage halved!
I suppose eventually it will be the fans. Some of the fans now are starting to take a greater interest in minor hockey, and as we seem to be going into a period of belt tightening, people are going to have to spend a bigger portion of their income on essentials and less on extras.
