Ignore my morning post.
The Classic has been cancelled.
The NHL has decided to cancel the Winter Classic, which was slated to feature the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at the University of Michigan's football stadium in Ann Arbor on Jan. 1, a source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun on Friday.
In the six weeks since the lockout began, the work stoppage has caused the cancellation of hundreds of regular-season games, significant revenue loss and what may be irreversible damage to the game's reputation.
pretty funny one off the twitter: HBO 24/7 has also been canceled, after NHL owners insisted on renegotiating it down to 22/9.
that was going to be my last week in Michigan, i am unbelievably pissed.... at everybody.... owners, players, bettman, way to kill a Michigan boy's dream...
damn right, Chris. i'm so sick of this league. all pro sports have their hang ups and have slight lockouts, but it's the NHL that has them on a regular basis and only the NHL cancels full seasons.
it's gary. it's all gary.
You had my hopes up with the news this morning. Dammit.
I think we can all agree on one thing: FUCK YOU BETTMAN! YOU FUCKLING FUCKLER! GO FUCK YOURSELF! FUCK YOURSELF TO DEATH FOR ALL I FUCKING CARE! YOU FUCKED THE FUCKING FANS OVER FOR THE LAST FUCKING TIME!
I'll put my money towards the local and college teams from now on.
