We don't waste our time on Hockey...I used to have season tickets in the Checkerdome for the Blues for years...I learned the hard way, $ 65 bucks per game. Just like when the football Cardinals used to be in St. Louis...the more money available, the quality of the product drops. Witness the NBA...they will be lucky to fill seats in their Marquee cities this year. Hockey is killing itself because of it's own greed, and only we can stop it.
problem is, we never will though..our country is so sports oriented..as soon as the hockey strike is over, there will be complaining, griping, bitching, etc..but they slowly but surely start filling the arenas again.
granted you dont see quite as many sellout's arenas in hockey or basketball, or baseball stadiums either, because there is so many games to be played every year..but either way, the sheep will come back..they always do. :flush:
