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

1 of 2

I can’t even begin to imagine a full year without the NFL. I live for Sunday’s and Monday nights during the fall and winter.  I am a huge hockey fan and I still have vivid memories of how difficult the NHL lockout was to get through in 2004.  In case that lockout didn’t affect you, let me tell you how brutal it was not being able to follow your favorite team and a sport that you love.  Once the games start getting scratched off the schedule it feels like you are being punished for a crime you didn’t commit.  I started getting those  same feelings over these past five months as a football fan.
