The 12 Days of the NHL Lockout

New, comments

It would be the most wonderful time of the year if it wasn't for this recurring nightmare that has become the NHL lockout. While talks are still going on today and fans are still clinging to the last shred of hope, I have lost all hope and slipped into complete insanity. So because of that insanity I have made an NHL 12 days of Christmas parody song for you all to enjoy.
