Well, I don't know about you, but I can't get me enough Steve Nash. This man is incapable of over-exposing himself. Now that's saying something, considering even a guy as likable as Blake Griffin is making people say "Enough!" I mean, I'm not about to make Nash my number one favorite player of all time like Bawful has (don't worry, Larry), but he's is definitely swerving around in Bird's rear-view mirror.

Add the super-sexy U.S. Women's goalkeeper Hope Solo to the mix, and you've got near perfection...get used to looking at FIFA highlights, folks. If the lockouts drags on, as it looks like it will, you may actually be forced to enjoy soccer.

There's a Rugby World Cup going on, guys, you don't have to resort to soccer just yet.

I may be forced to *watch* hockey. I cannot be forced to *enjoy* it.

I would, however, enjoy Hope Solo. AMIRITE?!

BadDave -- All joking aside, give it an honest chance and I bet you'll end up liking hockey. It's like basketball if you had sticks, could move super fast, and could knock the ever living hell out of anything that moves. And very few stoppages in play compared to basketball, which is nice. And unless the game is a 3 goal blowout, the last five minutes of the game are super intense because you could have a quick goal or two out of nowhere to make things interesting.

The Florida Panthers have been ass for a decade +. Hockey is just not my cuppa tea.

Anyone get 2K12 yet?

My problem with Hockey is that unless it's on a fast break, I can't see plays develop. Goals seem to come out of nowhere and are based on luck as much as anything. Maybe if I could go see a couple of games live I'd develop more of a feeling to it, but as it stands I'm just baffled by it.

kazam92 -- My copy of NBA2K12 is in the mail right now. I was just texting Bawful about it the other day. I have some ideas for how to use it to our advantage should we have games canceled... And yes, the Florida Panthers are rancid dog shit.

Czernobog -- Widescreen and high definition make hockey 500% easier to watch on TV. It's a lot more like being there in person now where you can see more of the ice and follow people's positioning instead of just trying to follow the puck. Watch for a little while and you start to pick up some of the patterns and things begin to make sense. Though there are still seemingly random goals just because you do get times where the puck bounces off the endboards at an odd angle and lands right at someone's feet in front of the net.

Dan B - Argh - I meant soccer.

I love hockey very much. Higher speed - players need to be thinking three steps ahead. And I love a good grind line check fest.

If there's no NBA season this year, there won't be an annual Null Star Game.

In that case, why doesn't someone create a "Legends" team with Greg Ostertag, Voshkul, Mario West and others on one side against the Null-Stars of last year like Von Wafer, Luke Babbit, Quincy Poindexter, etc.

BadDave -- Respek knuckles

KHayes666 -- I like the way you think.

I saw hope solo on the soccer field and she looked smoking hot. I saw her on dancing with the stars and she looked below average.

The Kwame Brown story is excellent.

Soccer is fun but I still hopes the lock out to be over. Lucky NBA 2K12 is now out and I had some game to play with.
