I'm sure I'll be curious at first to see how things are shaking out ... and then I'll get sucked in again.

Default Not the way you think

The lockout has reminded me that I wouldn't lose an hour of sleep if hockey didn't exist.

This will be a shortened season that I will miss again. If hockey disappeared, I would hardly notice.

You wouldn't, but there are several who would.

Just keep that in mind.

You're from the Bay Area. That doesn't surprise me at all that you think like that. Hockey is such a foreign concept in places like that it's hardly a surprise.

Personally other sports like football or just other entertainment is pleasing me, many times i tape WWE Raw on Monday night and watch it Saturday. one thing for sure i've lost any notion of ever going to another NHL game..

I'll still watch it on TV, but with or without the lockout watching on TV is better anyways, and would have continued to do that whether the season started October 7, or in January. The nearest team to me (Rangers) is about a 80 minute train ride, prices are ridiculous even for 400 level seats where you need binoculors to see the action, and beer is even more expensive.
When I watch from my house I can pick up a 6 pack which is about the same as 1 beer at the stadium anyways, no line for the bathroom, can catch up on other games/events during the intermission, and no line to exit. Plus when the game ends, the trains are only running once an hour, so even if the game ends at 10:00 PM, I may not end up getting home until 2:00AM, and I could be sound asleep from my bed at that time watching from home.

^^A 40-inch TV and high definition cable have seriously suppressed my need to go to the arena, that's for sure.
