This is it - No hockey

Nothing to rally over, drink over, and distract us Canucks fans from the impending dark wet winter.
Our lives are over.
The biggest change for players will be the lack of those sweet, sweet paycheques (checks for the Americans joining us today) every couple of weeks that probably total what you or I make in a year or two or five.
Certainly we shouldn’t expect to see the Sedins in line in a soup kitchen anytime soon, but when you have a lot of money you lead a different lifestyle that is predicated on making all that money.
With NHL money comes pro athlete lifestyles, and the expectation of continuing that lifestyle and not slumming it in economy class when you fly to Las Vegas which means the longer the lockout goes on, the more desperate hockey players will be to get some, any, incoming revenue.

If you’ve been drenched in GC-161, call Alex Mack.

If he can use his wife to get into a practice with the Whitecaps and not look out of place, surely a contract wouldn’t be too hard to procure.
When asked if he was a hipster, Dan said yes, but I don’t think it means what he thinks it means. I don’t know what type of job he’ll have as a hipster, but has anyone yet figured out what hipsters do for money?
Have you seen those impressions? There may be no Hockey Night in Canada, but Schneider can still be seen every Saturday on SNL.
Hunting. All day. In the remote woods. Where twitter is unavailable.

In a library probably.
If you’re looking for Chris this lockout, he’ll be out back at Rogers Arena enjoying a cigarette until this whole thing blows over.
Somewhere a community theatre is putting on a production of The Muppets and they need a Beaker.
Totally not looking forward to getting a real job.
