you maybe glad for your parking space, but i do not think that for the overall economy it is not good to have this lockout.
I do understand what you're saying also. But what did the buisness do before a hockey team came around? Sports doesn't have any effects on my job either, I work for an insurance company in the IT field. I'm not against it per say but I just don't like why employees have to wait in long lines to park to do my job. I start work at the same time the games start, 7pm!
