NHL: the No Hockey League

They officially cancelled the National Hockey League season today.

What? You didn't know there WAS a hockey season?

That's the problem, really. Nobody seems to care that nobody's playing hockey. Not even in Canada, to any great degree.

I love playoff hockey. And I will really, really miss it this year. But it's very hard to care about billionaires fighting with millionaires.

And if you're an NHL player, enjoy playing in Division One of the Upper Slobekistan League for the rest of the season. One word of advice: stay away from any kind of meat that comes from a yak. Trust me.
