Saturday was slated to be opening night for the 2012-13 season. Instead, Xcel Energy Center was open for the few season ticket holders willing to come on out for an open house and skate around.
It seemed more like a graveyard. "Come on out and take a look at something that has been taken from us", should of been the slogan for this event. The locker rooms were empty. The concession stands were closed down. And there were no pee wee hockey players yelling "programs!" as you entered the arena. It was almost as if they were trying to push us to the brink of insanity.
It was just a painful reminder that NHL hockey is very far away. In fact, the reason there has been no posts on this blog for the past month is that there is just simply no desire to write about something that does not exist for the moment. I do have a lot of content ready to be blogged up, but as I said, there is just no desire to write about hockey at this point.
Maybe my mind will change on this at some point.
But for now, its just an empty feeling...
