Today, Wayne Gretzky announced that he will resign as coach of the Phoenix Coyotes. In response, the nation continued to not care about hockey.
"Who retired from coaching?" said William Garber, a 38 year old sports fan from Montrose, Iowa. "Didn't he used to play hockey? I guess I didn't know he was a coach. Is it hockey season already? I guess I was just concerned with football...and fantasy football."
William is not the only sports fan unaware of what is going on in the NHL.
"Phoenix? There's a hockey team in Phoenix?" asked Rita Underguard of Calico, Colorado. "What are they going to do next, put one in Tampa Bay or Atlanta?"
