Riots Breakout in Southern US over Cancellation of NHL Season

Riots Breakout in Southern US over Cancellation of NHL Season

Hundreds of thousands of hockey fans took to the streets in cities across the southern US last night to protest the official cancellation of the NHL season. The uproar sparked riots in hockey hot spots such as Nashville, Atlanta, Miami and Raleigh, NC.

Nashville was hit hardest, as angry fans of--whatever the hockey team that plays there is called--set fires, smashed windows and clashed with police when the official announcement from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was made Wednesday afternoon.

"Man, this is just so unfair," said Gary McMarberly of Nashville, who described himself as a passionate hockey fan. "This is the worst day of my life. I can't believe the...whatever our hockey team is called aren't gonna have a chance to compete for that...trophy thing this year.

"Me and the three other season ticket holders are just devastated."

Hockey-mad Miami, with the most rabid fans in all of the NHL, has also been hit hard by the lockout. In fact, more than five people have noticed there's been no NHL hockey this year.

"In my office, people were openly weeping when they heard that the entire NHL season was being scrapped," said ?diehard' Florida something-or-other supporter Elaine Nashbrook of Coral Gables, Florida. "This is a dark day for hockey in the tropical United States."
