Today, the National Hockey League 2012-2013 season should be starting with games including one between the Ottawa Senators and the hated rival Montreal Canadiens.
Instead, NHL hockey arenas are dark and quiet.
The stupidity of the NHL and the greed of the players has resulted in a blackout and a lockout.
What a mess. What a fiasco.
But in the end, it means there's no NHL hockey. And all the folks who work in the hockey world and hockey-related jobs are losing money. And there's no hockey.
Dumb, dumb, dumb. With luck, the fans will teach the NHL whose money really counts when this is over. Or not. Sports fans seem awfully forgiving of their "heroes" these days.
Damn it. :(
