NHL cancelled their season

I'm not really a big hockey fan, and I hate it when the sports pages contain 4 pages of NHL negotiations and news while having only 1 page of NBA news. I guess that's what you get for living in a hockey crazed town. I mean, don't newspapers have better basketball analysts that could post more than 1 page's worth of information?

Hockey never really grew on me, even though the first year I was here, I started to watch the games and play a bit. I don't know why, maybe because it's too expensive to play (helmet, gear, hockey stick etc etc cost a lot), whereas you could play basketball almost anywhere with just 1 ball and some running shoes, or maybe it's because I grew up in a country where the average year round temperature was 32 degrees C :).

I symphatize with the hockey fans who must feel let down by the league and the players, but for me, this is great, because maybe now there can be more news about the NBA in the media.

Yeah, and now that it's over, no more constant bitching from the NHL fans of "When's hockey coming back??" Never! Haha. My three cents.
