I don't know as we get closer and closer to this, I feel worse and worse about what I do as a "hobby." The hours I spend of my own time to promote a league, players, and owners, that seem to take the fans for granted.

I guess that was why the Who I Am video was so special, because it was for the fans, but still, I wonder what I could have done with all those hours back to do something "more useful
"


Speaking for myself, a sense of personal accomplishment is usually worth the effort I put into things like this. I've been volunteer coaching Soccer and Baseball for parks and recs, for 5 years now, and its about alot more than spending time with my own kids that are on the teams I coach. Its about having a positive impact on a community...I hope.

I've always enjoyed your stuff on youtube, and now my kids, 8 and 10 have all of your CBJ vids bookmarked. They can't get enough of it Skraut. You do promote the team with your work, and I hope that brings with it a personal sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

Back on the lockout topic, I guess I agree with the sentiment that its better to get this thing done right than to have hockey this October. I really believe the players have to give in. Teams are losing money, not 1 or 2, but as much as half the league. When teams start folding, noone wins, not the players, owners, and certainly not the fans.
