I attend atleast five games as I have a five game mini plan with the club and if I have the momey i'll attend a few more. I'm not like everyone else here when they say they don't miss the NHL because I do. I miss the Saturday night games, I miss the rivalry games and I miss listening to Lange on the radio.
I'm not into college hockey, i'm done following ECHL hockey since Johnstown moved away and although i've had a ten game plan with the Erie Otters for the last three years, it doesn't replace following NHL hockey. Alto figure in the fact the team is horrible on defense, has no consistant scoring outside of Connor McDavid and Connor Brown and is too broke to make a coaching change. So all that and the fact Erie is close to three hours away from home makes it hard to get into OHL hockey the same way i'm into NHL hockey.
Hang in there....
What a somber thread
There's nothing really somber about what I said.
Anyways if there's any good about this lockout, I have very few distractions when it come to getting my homework done for the college classes i'm taking at Cal U. Like in my campaign management class where i'm in charge of a group to put together a campaign strategy paper for the congressional district of our choice (our group decided to do the 18th district). So with the lockout going on as long as it has, i've had a ton of free time to get this project done and its very time consuming, but it's going well so far.
Also in terms of sporting events, i've been going to more Steeler games as a result of the lockout. I've already been to games againist the Jets, Redskins and Chiefs and have tickets for the away game in Cleveland and the home game againist San Diego.
But I do miss the game. Yes hockey is hockey, but nothing compares to watching the best league in the world and I wouldn't turn my back on it. Like I said above: I don't follow college hockey, i'm done following ECHL hockey and watching the OHL isn't the same andI don't play the game.
