Even President Obama is ready for the NHL lockout to endIt's been more than two months since the lockout between National Hockey League team owners and players began and there has been little progress. While those who like to play the sport can still dress in their new or used hockey equipment and hit the ice for some action, spectators and other fans are left with few options.
Additionally, the lockout is negatively affecting many businesses that depend on the sport to survive. According to CBS News, the delayed season is impacting team personnel, arena staff, restaurants and even sports memorabilia stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
But business owners and fans aren't the only ones wishing for a resolution to the dispute. President Barak Obama recently spoke about the lockout during an appearance on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
"Every time these things happen I just want to remind the owners and the players - you guys make money because you've got a whole bunch of fans out there who are working really hard - they buy tickets, they're watching on TV," President Obama said. "You all should be able to figure this out. Get this done."
