President Barack Obama on Wednesday night pleaded with the NHL and the players' union to create labor peace because "the fans deserve it."
Appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Obama was asked if he could pull strings to end the NHL lockout. After the appaluse ended, Obama said, "You know, I do have a comment on this. 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.
"Y'all should be able to figure this out. Get this done. The fans deserve it."
We have a feeling Mitt Romney (mindful NHL fans = votes) will express similar sentiments this week.
