I’ve thought from the beginning that Denver would make for a great “neutral” NHL playoff site, should it come to that in this coronavirus world we’re in. Imagine my surprise yesterday when I saw a New Hampshire city – Manchester – listed as a possible site should the NHL go to a regional playoff format, where some or all of the teams stay there and play the games there – all of them likely without any fans in the stands.
As someone who grew up mostly in the Live Free or Die state, where there still is ZERO sales tax (yes, if you buy a car in New Hampshire, as a New Hampshire resident, you pay zero sales tax on, say, a $40,000 SUV. You buy a bunch of clothing at a Kohl’s or some store in the Granite State – sales tax, zero. There also is no state income tax. Do people not now understand why a goal of mine is to retire there some day?) (It won’t happen, though, as my wife is a Colorado native and she’s not much of a N.H. fan, and she’s in charge of things in my household) this was kind of fun to read.
