With the NHL lockout, I was fearful of an entire lost season. Not only would the interest in hockey suffer a major blow, but now we’ve lost the Winter Classic.
As you may recall back in February when they first announced the upcoming Winter Classic, I was ecstatic for it and what it could lead to for the West Coast.
This annual matchup always brings the best out of hockey. Not only did the 24/7 series give us a glimpse of what a real hockey dressing room looks like, but it also was pretty sweet to see hockey outdoors.
Now with the Winter Classic gone, it is starting to hit me that we won’t have hockey this season. The NHL has grown on me since I lived in San Jose and every year I hope for the Sharks to finally win the Cup. Now I wait and hope for that chance to come around.
