Niagara Gazette — As much of a jerk as the NHL can be, he really is a good friend. When my wife and I need something to cheer for, we know we can cheer for the NHL. Big parts of my entire life are dedicated to the NHL, and I don’t apologize for any of the time or money I have spent, or will spend, on that guy’s bail money. I even married an enabler who encourages me to keep my close friendship with the NHL. She’s a truly great lady, and I can’t even begin to thank her for the way she turned my life around.
So, yeah, the NHL can be a self-centered jerk who feels like everyone owes him something. It can even feel like he doesn’t care about anyone else but himself. But the NHL has been there for me way too many times for me to not cut him some slack once in a while.
