The NHL is locked out. Did you hear about this? We’re in the middle of the league’s latest stoppage and things have gotten so bad that Canadians are starting to do rude things like refuse to take dinner reservations. It’s getting ugly.
In a since-deleted Tweet, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul shared the gory details:
“@realsports is not allowed to take reservations from Leafs players during the lockout but will continue selling our jerseys for $300 a pop.”
Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk, who was acquired in a trade with Philadelphia in June, initially tweeted in support of Lupul — writing “same thing happened to me a month ago #amateurhour” — before that response was removed from his feed.
Hockey players can’t play hockey. Hockey players can’t get reservations at a sports bar. Hockey players can’t tweet whatever they want. It sucks being a hockey player. [via the National Post]
