    I live about two miles from CSU Fort Collins, which is Joey Porter's alma mater. I might just get happy about them instead.

    There's always more hunting and fishing to do, as well.

    Let's not overreact here. There were player strikes in 1982 and 1987. We kept watching afterward. If there is a lockout in 2011, we will still watch afterward.

    The entire 2004-2005 hockey season was wiped out because of a lockout (first time a major sport cancelled a complete season, and the first time the Stanley Cup was not awarded since 1919), but I still watch hockey now.

    I think I've heard it's a virtual certainty that there will be a work stoppage. I don't know much about the NFL situation, etc. But in terms of our economy, I'm sure that there will be HUGE differences of opinion. In general, people think (and are led to believe) that this recession is just another recession (a temporary blip)... I think it's quite contrary. I think we are about to experience a dramatic (long-term) contraction in our standard of living.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I don't see how anyone would know it's a virtual certaintly. It's all speculation at this point. I'll believe it when I see it.

    And a couple of weeks after the NFL announces this, Directv will announce their annual price increase for Sunday Ticket.
