I must say my interest in the NHL is waning. I still like hockey but I'm enjoying the "extra" time I now have since I'm not in front of the TV for two-to-three hours three nights a week.
I've been watching more college hockey and while it's a lot sloppier, it's still fun to watch. Watching the KHL games have been good, too.
Frankly, the NHL has been the most consistently moronic of all the major sports leagues. Every time they are in the position to advance, they shoot themselves in the foot.
NHL hockey could've exploded in the 70s but it instead became a garage league of goons that caused a split and the creation of the WHL. It again could've exploded during the Gretzky/Lemieux years but the 1994 lockout ruined that and the player-focused CBA lead to the dead puck era. The post-2005 lockout years have been some of the best for the league and then this lockout has killed that.
Hockey should be huge in the U.S. When played right, it's a fast and exciting game. It will never grow in this country if both sides turn into children every time the contract expires.
So now we are talking about the NHL and not cafe racers?
I have some good and bad news. I made up my mind to get the Street Triple and then buy a Thruxton after I pay off the first bike. Unfortunately I test rode with my girlfriend on the back and she HATED it. So I'm going to get the Thruxton first just so we can ride more comfortably together. She's not against Triumphs at all, she actually decided that she wants a Scrambler instead of a Sportster for her first bike
