Hal Gill makes the Mayan apocalypse/lockout comparison everyone was waiting for

Deep down, you know you were waiting for it.

Someone had to compare the NHL lockout to the Mayan’s predicted apocalypse, so defenseman/pylon humorist Hal Gill stepped up to the plate. He dropped this line to the Tennessean’s Joshua Cooper.

“Maybe they are waiting for the Mayan predictions to get them off the hook,” Gill said.

See, that often-noted Armageddon claim really is more than just an excuse to throw some house parties before everyone leaves for the holidays.

Even if it was a rather predictable joke, you have to hand it to Gill for adding a little comic relief in the midst of the league canceling the next set of games through Jan. 14.

On a similar note, the NHL and NHLPA still have no meetings scheduled as of Thursday night, the Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliott reports.

Hey, at least Bill Daly says there’s going to be a season, right?

    “It’s the end of the world, as we know it, and I feel fine” R.E.M Lots of tragedy and bad news in the world everyday. I just want to sit down with a cold one, tune it all out, and watch the NHL. Please, Mrs Claus, please. Or send Vicodin and vodka and Ms. Hallie Berry in a Victoria secret Santa outfit. Oh, and some Viagra. Oh yeah, and world peace.

    joey=blomfeld=valoisvipers=sportsfan= one big F@cking loser!!!!

    quit making it so obvious… you are defending your other posts way too hard. maybe try logging on the accounts at different times of the day! then it wouldn’t be so obvious!

    but the real problem here is more people are talking about this loser Joey on an internet blog than they.are talking about this cancelled hockey season!!!

      I agree with not talkin about him anymore, but I jus wanna say that I really don’t think blomfeld’s one of his names. Blomfeld’s been around for awhile, and while I don’t really agree with what he says …ever …outside of blomfeld agreeing qnd enjoying the joey’s nonsense there’s nothing else that would link them.

    I’m not Joey, Jesus or Mary. All I want is NHL and hallie berry. One would be great. But doubt I will get either this year. Just like ’04.
