I grew up in the midwest. We would drive 3 hours to St. Louis or Cincinnati for 5-10 games every year. I could tell you most of the players names and stats. Until 1994. I've been to 2 games since. I haven't had a favorite baseball player since I was a kid.

I'll go back to hockey, but it's going to be tough. I'm a fan of the team, but I'm pissed at the players. This is totally on the players in my opinion. No one could foresee the Canadian dollar skyrocketing against the American dollar. A lot of the growth in revenue which affects the players' take was artificially high when they convert it to US dollar that the NHL runs on. I hope the players get a 48-50 stake shoved down their throats and then the American dollar recovers in a few years. Those record revenues won't be so huge anymore and the players' share will be even smaller.

I fully understand why the owners are where they are. Then players are overpaid buffoons.
