Grantland Has become Indispensable

Charles P. Pierce on the NHL lockout…

He got his day with the Cup, on August 15, taking it home to Meadow Lake and squiring it around with his friends. Dwight King’s life was sailing. And then, exactly a month after King took the Cup home to Meadow Lake, along came Gary Bettman, who should be dressed in a meat suit and driven through a wolverine enclosure.

Tragicomic that a treatise on the destruction of another pro hockey season serves as respite from other, even less savory, matters.
