Great progress was made today in the labor dispute between owners and players. Fans can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as a deal is projected to be finished by the end of next week. All economic issues have been settled and there are only a few remaining topics left to discuss. The best news is that the preseason should stay intact and no games will be interrupted. It’s been over 120 days and this long, depressing offseason has seemed to last an eternity. But the madness should be over soon enough. Hold on to what sanity you have left, because the lockout will be over before you know it….and what a glorious day that will be.
