While hockey fans around the world have zero say in ending the current NHL lockout, American fans today can have a say in their country and statewide elections.
I understand Too Many Men on the Site and FanSided don’t delve into politics so I won’t. I’ll just say please go out and vote if you are a citizen of the United States of America and a registered voter. We all complain we have no control over the lockout and its unfair because they’re arguing over money we give them. Well, today in America you have a voice and a say on how your tax dollars will be spent the next 4 years, so go out and be heard.
Now, I’ll step down off my soapbox and get back to covering hockey. We can start by discussing one of the most depressing/annoying stories currently going on in North America outside of politics, the NHL lockout.
The NHL and NHLPA are meeting today in a secret location in New York City as we speak (or it could be over depending on how long it takes me to edit this post). Some progress may have been made over the weekend when the two sides had a few lengthy discussions. For now a new CBA is still a ways away but at the very least the two sides are back to talking and back to meeting. Progress, even if it’s not much, its still progress.
We’ll have more tomorrow on today’s meeting between the two sides and hopefully for once we’ll have some good news. However, I wouldn’t suggest holding your breath.
