It Gets Real

Now the regular season is starting to suffer.

I should be up in arms now. But I’ve found myself taking my own advice over the past few weeks:

I recommend you insulate yourselves from this idiocy. Find something else to do. You’ll probably hear when the season starts and then you can decide if you like your life better with NHL hockey or without.

And I’m finding that my life is fine without NHL hockey, mainly because I’ve set up a mental block. When I do let myself think about the Wings, it does bum me out. So I’ll be back when they’re back. But it’s not nearly the same degree of automatic it was last time. Real life has filled in the gaps.
