The sound of one sport napping

If a league calls off a season and there's no one around to care, does it make a lick of difference?

Seriously, how many people even remembered that the NHL season would be going on right now normally until they announced it's cancellation yesterday?

Ok, I don't follow hockey (and don't know people who do) but it really has been well below the radar and that can't be a good sign for a sport that has a major projessional league.

Here's a playlist for the cancellation of the NHL season (NHL RIP.) I find it telling that quite of few of these tracks are meant to be funny.


Excuse me, Mr Bettman, Jeff Gannon here of Talon News... I have a question.
