I do not rap often, but when I do it is because I am angry. Today, I am angry at my beloved National Hockey League for not reaching a new CBA deal by the deadline forfeiting the scheduled start of the 2012 season (leaving a serious void for NHL fans). This video sums up how I feel. In it I threaten to cease all NHL related activities if an agreement is not met by mid-October. It will be hard but I might as well try. Sorry to make excuses, but I threw this video together very quickly - if your favorite team is not represented I apologize. In my haste to complete it I forgot to include some footage of my favorite team. I would like to thank two very talented Youtube contributors for their amazing NHL vidoes - hockeywebcaster and neutralzoneHD. I hope they don't mind me borrowing some of their footage.
Of the many anti-lockout groups emerging one gaining serious momentum and generating results is @NoNHLLockout12 on twitter and Facebook. It feels good to bombard the NHL with anti-lockout messages when you know thousands of fans are doing the same thing at the same time. That said, there are many other groups out there let's make sure all our voices are heard and we unify for the same cause: END THE NHL LOCKOUT OF 2012!!! #BuildTheArmy
