Shoot My Harmony Joy Ride Down

Wesley Willis offers some poignant advice to all of us regarding the 2012-13 NHL season.

From the Washington Post (09 AUG 2012)

“We reiterated to the union that the owners will not play another year under the current agreement”

That’s what Gary Bettman told reporters in NY after today’s labour talk.

We’re five weeks away from that date, and the NHLPA hasn’t even fired back a counter offer from the one the NHL made a few weeks ago. Progress!

I’d like to remain cautiously optimistic about this entire scenario, but I’m not exactly beaming with confidence after hearing Bettman’s matter-of-fact tone today.

Should the lockout rear its ugly head, we’ll take suggestions on what we should do with our time.  Here are a few I’ve come up with.

  • Drink
  • Run an NHL 94 simulated playoff series and upload it here.  That year was a beaut.  Shayne Corson!  Zdeno Ciger!  Brad Werenka!
  • Dedicate more time to the OKC Barons
  • Drink
  • Share with you some really awful music videos.  I’m a new wave fan, I’ve got some great stuff in my tape collection.
  • Go outside
  • Put snow tires on my ’95 Saturn SL2
  • Go bowling
  • Apologize
  • Participate in competitive eating contests
  • Drink

You get the idea.  Suggest some ideas in the comments.  We might have some free time in the not-too-distant future.

    you had me at “drink” …do bowling alleys still exist? and what is this “outside” you speak of?? i am curious to see how the oilers will handle their season ticket holders if the lock out / strike happens. i was not a ticket holder during the last lockout, so i wonder how they will spin this to us if it happens this year. I would also be curious to know what Darryl Katz’s opinion is on the work stoppage. If i was him, i think i might be worried about public support waining for the new arena project here in edmonton while billionaires and millionaire fight over money while us thousandaires pay top dollar for tickets.

      I’ve taken a poll. Ian wants to do an NHL ’13 sim, I’d like to do an NHL 94 sim, and we’ll all be drinking if things don’t get done soon.
