There’s no hockey, sort of

That’s because the Olympics are happening right now so the hockey players have gone to play for their respective countries. A far cry from the Olympics I grew up with when everyone had to be an amateur. The Miracle on Ice was made up of college students from Montana against the state subsidized athletes from the Soviet Bloc.

Anyway, so there is not NHL hockey, just Olympic Hockey, which is being played a continent away, meaning the live feeds are at odd hours. Like 3:00 a.m. Only an obsessed fan would get up at 3:00 a.m. to watch hockey when she has to go to work and a snowstorm is coming which means it will be a rough commute.

Yes I was up at 3:00 a.m. this morning, and do you know it is 30°F warmer in Russia than it is here? The skiers are having a hell of a time. Meanwhile it is a white-out in Queens and I am sitting here thinking, why did I come to work instead of staying home to watch more Olympic hockey?
