NHL Shows their Support for the Troops

OK, So I've been a little derelict in keeping up with this, but something happened today that I just had to write about....apparently all the NHL players association and the NHL Commissioner, Gary Betteman decided kindly decided that playing a full schedule of the Stanley Cup playoffs during a time which I would be unable to watch the Avalanche skate around the rink of Pepsi Center with Lord Staley's grail or attend the victory parade down 17th street would be undue hardship, and graciously agreed to cancel the season until such a time when it will be more practical for me to watch.

What a generous outpouring of support for all our deployed troops. Who says professional athletes are out of touch and don't care about the average fan?
