So Kara Yorio, who covers hockey for The Sporting News, is probably getting nervous that maybe she’ll have nothing to do during an NHL lockout. So she’s working on stuff to cover next season.
She seems to have arrived on lacrosse.
Yorio says the National Lacrosse League is getting ready to make a run at displaced hockey fans.
It sounds so crazy. But she does make some good points. Like how lacrosse can be played on an iceless hockey rink. And a bunch of NHLers own lacrosse teams.
And if the NLL catches on, the WHA will finally have a sport to look down on.
