Please End the NHL Lockout!

I am missing NHL hockey so badly, that I am now going to watch kids play locally. On Monday my daughter treated me to a game at the Four Nations Cup, being played at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube, home of the US Youth hockey program. We watched Sweden and Finland play to a 2-2 score. Last night, she and friends watched a US squad beat the Swedes 7-1. They also saw, and said hi to Detroit Red Wings' defenseman, Nick Lidstrom...I am sure he's having an even harder time without a season.

If there is a bright spot in all this, it is the coverage that amateur and minor-league hockey is getting. However, watching a bunch of 18 yr-olds play is not the same as watching the Detroit red Wings! Stop the insanity and let's have NHL hockey back...

One last thing...if you are going to take photos of a hockey game (or any fast moving sport) a low-end digi won't cut it. Shutter lag will screw your shots up every time. Better use film or a high-end digital camera without the lag.
