We Love Hockey Flash Mob (All Things Hockey)

This past Sunday (October 28th) a great spectacle occurred at the Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, Canada. It’s not something that any ordinary person couldn’t organize together but the message is clear to me. We are 46 days deep into this lockout and November isn’t going to get any easier. Will we have NHL hockey by December 1st?

Rumors are flying in all directions from the winter classic being canceled to possible offers from the owners to come shortly. I don’t know what to believe in other then that we as passionate hockey fans need to keep our spirits and hopes to the end. Do not give up till it possibly becomes official that a full-season lockout is the last option.

I have no real words to say to both the owners and players. If my favorite sport has to be ruined by a bunch of lazy and stubborn people over a bunch of green paper with dead presidents on it….so be it. I have alternatives and so do we all with plenty of other hockey leagues playing daily. Oh well, here’s to our love of hockey:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
