Hello folks. Good morning from the beautiful City of Chicago at 8:43 Central Standard Time. Yesterday it was all the rage on Facebook: lockout this and lockout that. I decided to do a little research and see when this "lockout" exactly happened. According to a Washington Post article, " The NHL imposed a lockout at midnight Saturday following the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement. It is the league’s second work stoppage in eight years, the third in the past 18." (http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/capitals/nhl-lockout-poised-to-start-its-end-remains-uncertain/2012/09/15/58dc636a-ff60-11e1-b287-8b9c63b32107_story.html). Stating in basic term, there will be no National Hockey League (NHL) season thus far and who knows how long it will last. For fanatics of this league, this is horrible news because now people might have to turn to another sport for their entertainment purposes. A temporary fix is to get in- tune with the AHL or any other league of hockey until the NHL can get their marbles together.
- What do you know about the lockout that you'd like to share or if you have a personal story from the last time this happened back in the 2004 to 2005 season. Feel free to share. Thanks and have a great day!
