Part 1 of my conversation with guest James Gralian as we discuss the latest NHL lockout and why we still give a damn about hockey. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Ceremony, The Mountain Goats, Allo Darlin' and Yo La Tengo.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Check out James' blog Jerseys and Hockey Love

- Seems like we just had a lockout...wiping out 2004-05 season

- NHL cancelled first two weeks of regular season

- Players are heading to play in Europe

- James: Annoyed at the NHL, still love the sport

- Plenty of other teams to support: Minor league, college, high school

- Jay: Went to more college games during last lockout

- Looks like this lockout could be a long one

- Jay: The burden of being a Leafs fan

- During lockouts, fans find other things to do

- Fans will come back, but lockouts are costly

- True fans really love the game

- Possibility of a new team in the Toronto area

- Support for the Leafs in Toronto is similar to Red Sox popularity in New England

- The strange journey of Tim Thomas

- LA Kings won the Cup and have to wait to raise the banner

- Replacement players have been tried in NFL, MLB before

- NFL just had embarrassing episode with replacement refs

- Will non-NHL hockey players want to become scabs?

- New minor league team in Denver

- Hard to say whether NHL season will be saved

- NHL commish Gary Bettman is very powerful

- Hard for fans to sympathize with either side

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Ceremony - Everything Burns

The Mountain Goats - Cry for Judas

Allo Darlin' - Capricornia

Yo La Tengo - Stupid Things
