All the hockey hipster nerds on Twitter are just going bananas because the NHL podium has been set up and taken down multiple times tonight at the hotel where the NHL negotiations are going down. All excited that there might be an announcement that the lockout is over. Should just permanently leave this podium up somewhere so each and every year when there’s inevitably another lockout or a strike, dorks like Osgood don’t have to go on this roller coaster of emotions. I mean at this point the NHL should just cut to the chase and schedule each year’s lockout. Next year’s lockout starts September 17th, 2013. Just leave the podium up till then.
