I need something. Anything at all. I'm literally being beaten down to a pulp by sports lately: Packers fan (MNF game...enough said), Blues fan (lockout, lose JD), White Sox fan (choking in the clutch after being in 1st most of the season).

Woe is me.

U need a hug bro?

Do I want to bore myself to tears watching soccer or lower my IQ by watching basketball? Maybe I'll just do some home improvement projects to keep busy.

Tough 3 days of talking(apparently no negotiating), and another month break...probably.

I kind of agree with their tactics though. If they get all the side issues out of the way at least they can deal with the main issue- revenue sharing- without any distractions or anything else lingering in the background and when the main problem is done, the lockout is done. I approve.

Because how disappointed would we all be when they announce they "agreed in principle" to the main problems but then they took another month ironing out what they're doing now? Probably ready to light stuff on fire... if not already.

Not at all surprising but still sucks balls.

I saw Andy Mac tweet at Strickland the other day that the players are trying to avoid a CBA that will force a lockout in another 4-5 years.

Why wasn't that the plan last time?
