Getting over hockey withdrawl
 
No hockey is killing me, what have people been doing to get over the lockout? Sub for another sport? Junior hockey? Games like this have helped keep me sane : :)

Having Netflix helps, and gamers have NHL 13 to keep them busy so lots of ways to keep busy

I agree.

Football is pretty good on Sundays, I'm really starting to enjoy watching NFL for the first time. It still doesn't cut it though. I won't watch basketball and I'm not interested in any college ball. Minor league games are meh.

I just watch my Oilers back. Even if we lose every game, I just want to watch some ****ing hockey already. Especially on Saturday nights, that's like a tradition in my household.

Anyone suffering from "withdrawal" after a month of a lockout needs to consider toughening up.


Besides, there is lots of hockey out there. Go support something local rather than suffering a bunch of greedy ******.

I've been watching the NBA and NFL a lot more than I did last year and I've also been watching the AHL.

Unaffiliated 11-10-2012 04:05 PM

The NFL is actually really good.

Screw You Rick Nash 11-10-2012 04:10 PM

Call of Duty and NFL/Fantasy Football.

JMcLeaf 11-10-2012 04:12 PM

Raptors, Knights, Marlies, movies and tv shows

I'm struggling.

Honestly, I watched a basketball game yesterday... And I ****ing hate basketball.

Watch some AHL hockey.

Also that is an awesome username.

:laugh:

NFL Football + Fantasy Football, the AHL / Keeping up with my teams prospects, reading the CBA Proposals (only kidding), and Walking Dead haha.

CBC is showing the last game in Maple Leaf Gards (vs Chicago) tonight, it's from 99.

Doing absolutely fine playing in my recreational Dek hockey league, playing the sport is even more fun than watching it.

8spokesontheB 11-10-2012 05:25 PM

I came down to old Mexico. Seemed like a good idea at the time...now I wonder if I wouldn´t rather have hockey games...

Meh. Having both would be ideal.

Living my life normally.

What about those that live abroad and have nothing of note near them?

Ditto for me. NFL and like 10 fantasy leagues keep me occupied. Once the season ends I will be super bored though!

I take it out on my liver.

Thank you Binny's Beverage Depot.

I Hate Chris Butler 11-10-2012 08:55 PM

Too busy with university to think about it.

Captain Saku 11-10-2012 08:57 PM

I'm going to the gym. I feel good :)

IU Hawks fan 11-10-2012 09:16 PM

College basketball is back, so I've got that. It's no hockey, not even close, but it's something to watch. The time between the World Series and now has been pretty dreadful.

Ryker 11-10-2012 11:47 PM

Well, if you're a hockey fan, there's no reason you should be going through a withdrawal, as there's plenty of hockey, as always. But if you don't like hockey in general, but only the NHL, then I can see how this is a bad situation for you.

Ding. Between volunteering, tutoring, others shows on TV (TWD and TAR specifically, lol) and 6 courses at University...hockey's been on the back burner for me.

...although this past week or so, I've been starting to think about hockey again. :cry:

If you live in the US, like fans of 23 of the teams, there really isn't.

Silence Of The Plams 11-11-2012 01:18 AM

Well I play NHL13, watch the Americans (Rochester) and of course play somw shinny out with my friends.
