Unfortunately, with the ongoing labor dispute officially starting a lockout, as of this past Saturday, I will not be able to finish my 30 arenas in the 30 months I had intended.
With the canceling of all the preseason games as of yesterday (Thursday the 27th), along with the lack of negotiations, I haven't been able to make any plans for travel to any of these cities.
In concert with this is the fact that in December, I will be going to the UK (don't worry, I'll see hockey there too, and blog it), and need to save up to have money on the trip. Going along with the post I made last summer about my hidden passion for soccer (football to everyone outside North America), I plan on going to a couple footy (I think that's British slang?) games in the motherland.
But never fret! I will still have hockey in Chicago to go to! Not only can I go to Wolves games (I bought a flex pack over the summer), but the Steel (junior hockey) are close by as well. I could even go to Rockford or Milwaukee if I want to.
I'll certainly try to keep updating the blog as regularly as possible, and if the lockout ends without sacrificing the whole season I definitely want to go to a few cities this year.
