It’s called congenital amusia, the scientific term for not being able to process pitch. The common term is tone deaf.
Charles Darwin, Ulysses S. Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Pope Francis and the Irish poet William Butler Yeats were notable cases.
Judging from what has been happening off the ice this week, it may seem the Golden Knights have contracted a temporary case.
On Monday, Knights season ticket holders received notification they no longer will be allowed to defer payments on 2020-21 tickets. After the coronavirus shut everything down with a handful of games remaining in the 2019-20 season, they were given a furlough on making payments in March and April.
Full marks to the Knights for temporarily understanding.
But now icing has been waved off.
Payment was due Wednesday.
“We have had regular communication with our season ticket members throughout the pause with information regarding payment plan options and general updates as they have become available,” the Knights said in a statement. “We encourage all our members to connect with their respective service representative with questions, concerns and feedback regarding our communications or policies.“
