Our long national nightmare is over. The NFL is back. The season will go on. Phew!
I knew they would do this. I knew they would get a deal in place but in doing so would push the time-limit to the brink. But, still, I am my father's daughter so I couldn't help but worry. His mantra is hope for the worst, expect the worster (worstest?). So in true Johnson fashion, I couldn't help but fear that this lockout would drag on to mess up my fall. Nay, to be the ruination of my fall. (I really love football.)
But now the deal is in place, the lockout is over, and training camp will begin so the season can get underway on time. In just a few short weeks, I will be watching kick-off with my new football buddy and the reigning AFC West Champions.
If only we could have figured out a way to salvage the actual NFL season while canceling the fantasy football season...
