NHL to observe Earth Hour this Saturday

Earth Hour

The NHL has pledged its commitment to Earth Hour, the World Wildlife Fund’s weekly radio show covering all things Earth.

Sorry, what was that?

My mistake – apparently Earth Hour is an annual event to raise awareness about climate change. From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time Saturday, participating households and businesses will switch off all non-essential lights while Rick Santorum runs every appliance in his house and has a bonfire.

According to, all 30 arenas have pledged to “scale back the energy used” during Earth Hour. So if you’re at the Coyotes’ game and all the power goes out, don’t worry, it’s just Earth Hour.

That or nobody paid the electric bill.

    Hahaha! The Rick Santorum reference was brilliant!

      …except instead of a bonfire Rick will probably be having a book burning or torching an effigy of Obama.

    Why would there be a Santorum comment in a hockey article? What’s the matter NBC, can’t keep your objectivity in check as well as you do on MSNBC? Oh wait……
    Thanks for the reminder though, as the Jeffrey Immelts and Al Gores are racing over the globe in their private Jets, I’m be in step with them, turning on the AC, blasting the heater, leaving the fridge door open…..

    Oh look another right winger who has no sense of humor. Probably lack hockey knowledge as well based on what usually pops up on this site. Well done.

      I got a sense of humor, what did Joe Biden say when he heard about this? March 31st??? Oh yeah, it’s a leap year.
      Save the political humor for your ‘comedy’ network, the one that’s inn the tank for the administration.
      Now go ahead, hit the THUMBS DOWN button, it’s so mature!
