Garth Brooks Defeated by the Tampa Bay Lightning

Talk about not planning for all of the contingencies:

Garth Brooks' hat trick of concerts scheduled for Tampa Bay's Amalie Arena this weekend have been canceled due to the Stanley Cup Finals. The country icon was slated to play once on Friday and twice on Saturday, but that now conflicts with Saturday's game 2 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Chicago Blackhawks.

When the shows were booked months ago (a year ago or more?), no one bothered to think of the playoffs, and that's okay. You have to assume that every team everywhere is going to tank and blow it and lose a wheel or two on the way to the playoffs. Now that the Tampa Bay Lightning have confounded everything holy in the world with their success, will there be any other conflicts?

Probably not, unless someone has reserved the Amalie Arena for a show on the day of a possible game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, which is a thing no one ever plans for, apparently.

If you read the article, it's like the end of the world, except for the fact that people will get refunds.
