With less than a week to go before the September 15 deadline, a lockout seems certain. As a huge sports fan and Canucks fan, I look forward to the NHL season every year. Therefore, I will really miss the NHL if there is a shortened season. But I guess there is a bright side to a lockout: I’ll be able to get my priorities straight and I will likely become a better student.
Instead of watching the Canucks on TV every second night or so, I can study. I will be able to improve on my least favourite subjects like Science and Social Studies while maintaining my love for recess, lunch and PE. Also, I won’t go to as many games with my Dad. While I realize how lucky I am to go to games, my grades will certainly get better. I’ll be home more and not taking 4 hour chunks to get to and from the arena. I’ve actually taken my textbooks to a game before and I studied during the intermission. I went from screaming to studying, booing to writing, and chanting to reading.
