We feel like the entire NHL fan base is on a hidden camera reality show, where the NHL and the NHLPA are just severely messing with us. How can you not come to an agreement before canceling an entire professional sport's season?

The London Olympics and Paralympics look like they might be costing $600 million less than previously thought!

That seems absolutely ahmayzing until you learn the total projected cost of the games is still $14.2 BILLION!

So they originally thought it'd cost them $14.8 billion. So it's a win, sort of.

Unless you knew that the original amount they planned to spend was
