Judging by the torrent of media coverage devoted to the cancellation of the NHL season, you’d think we were a nation of hockey lovers or something.
I’m not one of them. I care about the cancellation of the NHL season about as much as I’d care if handball or race-walking were dropped from the Olympics.
I can’t think of anything more boring than watching hockey. Well, maybe watching Coronation Street. Or watching city council debate a by-law on residential fence height requirements. That would be pretty boring.
Speaking of boring, Don Cherry was on the National last night complaining that he hasn’t received a paycheque in months. Yes! Another reason to celebrate the death of professional hockey. Don Cherry is out of a job.
Non-newsy newsflash: No one cares about a bunch of greedy millionaires arguing with even greedier billionaires.
Long live Movie Night in Canada!
