Big Caps fan here. My ticket budget was going to go towards homebrewing. Instead, it's going towards baby stuff because I don't have time to brew as much as I'd like. My oatmeal stout that was ready around the time the season would've started has been dubbed "Lockout Stout."

I've been watching Marlies games when they're on. The AHL is great hockey, I wish more stations would pick it up. CBC is showing old "classic" games on Hockey Night In Canada right now, when they should be putting on live AHL games. I can't wait for the World Junior Tournament, we've been without hockey for too long.

I could use more AHL games on the TV. Hear that FSD??

I can't believe how much stuff I've been getting done around the house lately, though. Watched a few minutes of Piston's basketball and had to turn it off. Just can't watch basketball anymore. Or maybe it's just the Pistons...

The T'Wolves have the same effect on me; I think it's the NBA.

I really thought there would be an agreement before the end of the year. Now it looks like the entire season is in jeopardy.

The problem is, both Fehr and Bettman have massive egos. The bulk of both players and owners want to play. They understand that this is not just a short term loss, but hurting the leagues image. Unfortunately, neither Fehr or Bettman can get over themselves, and you have the Jeremy Jacobs (I'm a bruins fan, but I can see his angle clear as day) type pushing Bettman.

Until the party leaders realize that arguing over future revenue and holding off a season (and likely losing the revenue they're battling over in the process) this wont end.

Hopefully, the silver lining will be that Bettman leaves the post and someone who cares about the game comes in. Anyone who would do this to fans and players clearly has little respect for the sport or fans.

I love watching hockey but this crap makes me not really care anymore. Just a big money grab. They don't give a darn about the fans.
