That smile. Gary Bettman is a saucy fellow.

It’s Thanksgiving in the land of Uncle Sam, and after yet another setback in NHL negotiations, the hockey world refuses to smile back at Gary Bettman. Not that it ever did; but it certainly seems more palpable on a day of thanks.

With people taking to the twitter machine to broadcast what they’re thankful for to the world, it is clear that nobody — literally nobody, except for maybe 30 or so very wealthy people and a couple of internet trolls — is thankful for Gary Bettman. Here is a (very) small sample of said sentiment.

(Note on the above: Jason Witten? Raul Ibanez? Mike D’Antoni? Seriously?)

Nothing makes a holiday happier than casual internet vitriol.

Unfortunately, for those of you who want him fired, I don’t think that NHL owners monitor twitter when debating important business decisions. In fact, if Barack Obama saying they need to sort it out didn’t get it sorted out, well… This isn’t going to end well.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
