Well, the schedule is finally out, sigh. Excited? Yes, but still sick to my stomach about overpaid athletes. Even though hockey players are among the lowest paid professional athletes (and I use the term 'athletes' strongly), it still seems like one more social anomaly to pay sports players millions more than teachers (or pastors!) etc. Why should a baseball player (can't even bring myself to use the term 'athlete') get paid more in one year than a teacher or professor or author or pastor or salesman or- just about anyone else, gets paid in a lifetime? Why should someone who gets upset on the ice and nearly paralyzes another player get to waltz back into town with the same pissy attitude, get paid even more money, and contribute ZERO to society?

The answer...you and me.
