NHL Pauses Season Over COVID Concerns

Here we go again…

The NHL has decided to pause the season until after Christmas due to COVID concerns.

With a large outbreak of COVID among Canadian teams and several US-based teams, the league will shut down until December 27.

Fans Stunned

The news came down during the games on Monday night.

Several games involving Canadian teams had already been postponed over COVID concerns.

Omicron is beginning to surge in the United States and Canada, so the league decided to shut down to give everyone a chance to catch their breath, so to speak.

Monday night’s games were the last games to be played before Christmas for most teams, with only two games slated for Tuesday night.

The league will resume travel and practice on December 26, with the first games being played being December 27.

In all, 11 teams, mostly the Canadian teams, had suspended operations due to COVID infections.

Roughly 15 percent of the league’s players had tested positive over the last few days.

The NFL believes the small break will give all teams a chance to allow the players and coaches that have tested positive the opportunity to get better and be able to put a full roster on the ice.

During the pandemic, the league had halted play, only to resume in a “bubble” where players were unable to leave their assigned cities and fans were not allowed in the stands.

The following season, the NHL only allowed partial attendance, with most arenas barely at 25 percent.

The NFL could be next, as several games had been postponed earlier in the week.

One of those games was played on Monday afternoon, with two more games being played on Tuesday.

If COVID starts to impact playoff teams, it would not be a surprise to see the NFL enact a similar strategy to try to save the season and allow the playoffs to go on as scheduled.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
