Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

only postponed
Today was supposed to be Opening Night for the 2004-2005 NHL season. But of course, it’s not.

And what could be a more poignant reminder of what’s lost than having today’s planned schedule of games listed in the usual spot on my Excite homepage, with an unintentionally optimistic “Postponed” in place of gametimes? Automated Web scripts at their finest.

I hope that scoreboard doesn’t display like that all this lost season. Or maybe I hope it does: It’ll serve as a regular reminder of what we’re missing, and maybe get me riled up out of my present apathy toward the labor impasse.
