Is it just me? It seems it is. Every time I start on a new rant about how the NHL is ruining my year and how I wish the owners and players would come to an agreement on profit sharing and just start playing some hockey, I hear a chorus of “WHO CARES!?” from my friends. I cannot be the only one in Syracuse that is missing hockey this year. I refuse to believe that.
I am a NY Rangers fan. Coming off a huge season last year, in which they finished second in the league after the regular season, and were two lousy wins away from playing for the Stanley Cup, I was so jazzed about this season. They traded for Columbus’ sniper Rick Nash in the off-season, which may just be the piece of the puzzle needed to make them the #1 contender. Instead, we don’t get to see Nash lighting the lamp; we get a lockout. And every time I complain, I find no sympathy!
I could not suffer in silence anymore, so I figured I’d vent here. I need to vent my hatred for the Pens, Flyers, Devils and Islanders. I need to have that hopeful feeling that I get every year around April when the playoffs start. Quite simply, I need some hockey!
Watch what Nash can do here and see why I’m not a happy camper this year:
