This is, I suppose, cause for celebration, though the relief I feel is tinged with guilt that I'm being an enabler. This lockout was pathetic, with the two sides not even negotiating for most of its duration. Of course as a fan of particular games rather than sports in general, the NHL will have my attention whether I like the way it's run or not. Still, I'll probably be more up for UW hockey and the Olympics, at least until the play-offs - the league will have to do something before my full enthusiasm will return. I've been wearing my St. Louis Blues hat around Egypt precisely because I don't care much whether it gets ruined over here.
