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

6 Comments

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?
