Late for horse racing too. The Kentucky Derby isn't to be run until September. Where is our baseball? I wonder about football and basketball too.

Hockey was my husband's favorite sport of them all.

My favorite hockey team is from Minnetonka, Minnesota. Our granddaughter has just started practice and is looking forward to her sixth season with her eleven year old teammates.

I love the Pittsburgh Penguins, of course. All Pittsburghers love the Penguins. We might get fed up with our Pirates if they're having a bad season, and to a lesser extent the Steelers, but we love our Penguins through good times and bad.

Flyers are my team, and they are showing up in the news, starting to do some skating in their training rink, in Vorhees. Don't know when they will get playing again, but I'm guessing that hockey, and other sports, will have pay-per-view games, to make up for playing in empty stadiums.

good responses all...

Bah ...it just seems a little to little and late ...this season ….at this juncture
I have well made some transition to baseball by now ….. and in July ! I am on to other things
outdoors ..etc. I am not sure I will be paying a covid premium to access hockey games that have no fans in attendance......IN JULY AUGUST ??????
seems like a lost year to me.....though it seems like a novelty to try something to offset the big loss .

no idea what is coming.
if they still try to hold playoffs, they might finish in time
for training camp to start for the new season, if that ever get rolling.

my team is the red wings or baby wings currently. i am hoping they have
hit bottom, and will be on the rebound finally. how can they be worse than
the last season? i have faith in steve yzerman. he will get a decent team together.

What's Hockey? We haven't had a NHL team in KC since the 70s. I think they are the NJ Devils now. My favorite team used to be the Minnesota Northstars who are now the Dallas Stars. I only watch hockey during the Olympics anymore.

We built a nice shiny arena in KC about 10 years ago hoping to lure an existing NHL or NBA franchise or get an expansion team but it still sits there without a anchor tenant. It does host a lot of tournaments, events, and concerts and somehow still makes money.

In the last few days I have gone from thinking the attempt of salvaging a professional sports season ...was perhaps a little to little to little to late

to realizing that actually ….that professional sports are not actually " essential " to the covid recovery world.

I can live with a skipped season now ….as I am ready for summer activities.

Have pity on me, I'm a Sabres fan. They haven't been good since Lindy Ruff was fired, and they have the dreaded Buffalo curse of making it to the finals and losing every time. They just fired their GM again a couple weeks ago so the team looks to be in termoil for a while still.

The probem with HNIC is all they show are the Leafs. That and they fired Don Cherry, who I always found to be entertaining.
