The NFL Lockout is Over: What it Means to This Bears Fan


Ding dong, the witch is dead!  The NFL Lockout is OVER!!!  In what has been the most painful and challenging offseason as a fan and especially the editor of this site, we can now move forward with the business of football.  Our addiction is back, right where we left off.

In fact, the reward for our suffering and patience this offseason will be a flurry of activity like none we’ve ever seen before.  We are about to experience an unprecedented rush of signings, free agents, rookies and trades.  You name it, we’ll have it.  There will be about 4 months of activity all condensed down into a couple of weeks.

For me, this means I will be especially busy.  It’s time to load up on Red Bull and forget about sleep for a little while to provide the best possible coverage that we can.

If there are things you’d like for us to cover, ideas for features or bits, give me a shout.  This site is of the people, by the people and for the people.

To celebrate the end of the lockout, I’m channeling my deep down inner Star Wars geek with the celebration at the end of Return of the Jedi.  Hang with it until the end, where Billy Dee Williams busts a move like no other brother does (and not in a good way!)
