No One Can Tell The Difference Between NHL Lockout And Regular Season

SOMEWHERE IN CANADA – Since the NHL Lockout began on September 15th, the general public has struggled to find differences between the NHL Lockout and the NHL Regular Season.

“I honestly can’t tell a difference from now and last season,” NHL analyst Pierre McGuire said. “I mean, nobody watches hockey during the lockout either.”

During the lockout, television networks have been forced to fill time slots originally scheduled for hockey games with other programming.

“It’s been tough for us, because we’re faced with the dilemma, ‘What do we not talk about now?'” SportsCenter producer Brett Austin said. “Luckily, we have ‘everything OTHER THAN Tim Tebow and LeBron James’ to solve that problem.”

“I’m not going to say the NHL is horrible for ratings,” Austin said. “But it is.”

Korked Bats obtained the Nielsen television ratings from last year’s Stanley Cup Finals between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils. According to Nielsen, seven people watched it.

Unfortunately, NBC Sports Network could not be reached for comment. Mainly because we still can’t find what channel it’s on.

Although, a lockout may not be the worst thing at this moment for hockey fans.

“I TiVoed [the Stanley Cup Finals], and luckily, with this lockout, I now have enough free time to get around to watching it,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said.

Austin hosts a country music morning radio show in Chicago after nearly a decade in sports talk radio (The Jim Rome Show, Steve Gorman SPORTS!) Colin Cowherd and Smash Mouth follow him on Twitter (which he apparently thought was important enough to share here). He also wears pants everyday.
