In case you missed it, last night during CBA negotiations, a podium was set up outside the conference room where the two sides were meeting. The appearance of the podium caused chaos…at least on Twitter, when the hashtag #Podium began trending.
This morning THW’s Josh Smith presented readers with his Top Ten NHL Podiums, so I’m presenting my own personal favorite #podium tweets, because when that hashtag started trending, the hockey community showed what greatness it’s made of, even after everything it has had to put up with.

This empty #podium can only mean one thing: Clint Eastwood speech.

Is anyone else concerned by the lack of French-speaking podiums? #podium

It puts the lectern on the #podium or else it gets the hose again.
