Robert, everyone was saying a month ago that it was close. Then, there was Bettman and his fuck buddies sitting side by side, saying things like “this is the hill we will die on” and “for the union to tell everyone we’re close is unfair”. Everyone else was saying the same thing that it wasn’t looking good. It seemed like the owners caved in.
Thank God hockey is back! Robert, I’m with you, I hate basketball, though I do follow college a bit. NBA? Not even on my radar screen. Dontrelle Willis; man, this guy was THE SHIT, and seemed to just lose it overnight. I wish he had something left but I just don’t see it. But as Wayne Gretzky once said, “100% of the shots you don’t take, don’t go in the net!”
