Around the NHL
So if you’re one of those people that wants to throw themselves into sports as a distraction for a few hours and try to enjoy the game, fantastic. The Flyers are in the midst of what should be a great series.
If you’re one of those people that is never watching a game again due to a two-day delay for social justice, even better, there’s no room for you in hockey anyway.
If you’re in the middle and are unsure of how to feel, that’s perfectly okay. Take your time, try to see if you can watch the game and get back into things. Read about how to be a better ally. It’s going to be weird to jump right back into hockey after what has happened. There are going to be mixed emotions. Do what feels right to you.
Be kind to each other and do the right thing. We’re all in this together.
Black lives matter.
