If you care, the NHL and NHLPA today announced a settlement in their 300 day scorched earth dispute.

Both parties have to ratify the deal.

But it looks like the lights will be going back on in NHL arenas this fall.

Please forgive me for what I am about to say! :(

I am not really a hockey fan, I get a bit excited when the canucks start doing well in the play offs, and I might even join hubby at the bar. But I really didn't miss it when the strike was on.

Once again please forgive me, for committing hockey night in Canada sin!! :(

I so just sent that to my Dad! hahaha. . . my dad is one of those 'frequent callers' on the Fan590 in Toronto. . . . This strike made Dad pretty unhappy - he had nothing to call and complain about (except for the stike itself, which after a while got kinda boring). . .. Thanks for the morning giggle, Luba!
