I'm sure I'm not the only hockey fan blogger who's been somewhat inactive...more than usual...with the NHL lockout going on. All I'll say about it is I feel awful for the people whose income depends on the NHL games happening...but personally I'm mostly doing fine without it. At least for a while. I have other things (and not just other hockey, or even other sports, imagine that) to occupy the fall (and winter if need be). And without the lockout, would NHL players be tweeting about things like THIS?
