I never thought the National Hockey League (NHL) would renew my soul and fill my heart with patriotism during such a dark time, but here we are…

In a stunning show of solidarity and patriotism, the NHL, who KNOW THEIR FANS and respect them greatly, stood together, some arm-in-arm, for the national anthem.

And it wasn’t just one team, it was across the entire league.

The NHL just sent a huge message to the rest of the sports world and America in general, and they’re saying “we will not participate in your pandering SJW circus.”

I have a few videos for you to watch. Take your time, enjoy, and savor this amazing and patriotic moment.

Among the preceding videos, notice how all NHL teams stand together, unified, and not separated by sides—including honoring our Canadian neighbors to the north. Again, thank you NHL for being amazing, patriotic, and respecting the flag, our police, military, and your fans.

And if you don’t already watch the NHL, now would be a great time to start.
