Fingers and toes crossed.
According to the Mayan calendar, it’s all over at 11:11 a.m. But, as it was pointed out yesterday, nobody ever mentioned if that was Eastern time, Mountain time, Pacific time, Mayan time …
Along those lines, there will be a special new post at 11:11 a.m. Eastern time … if we are still here.
And if we are, then we can resume discussing this lockout thing, which is almost at the point of no return, but I believe has at least two weeks, maybe even three, to play out. I’ve said all along, it’s got to get grim first, and there would probably have to be a point of no return, a drop-dead date, in order for a deal to be struck.
I think that point is coming, but not yet. As we can also see, this whole thing was scripted and perfectly orchestrated by the owners and the Lockout Commissioner. Freakin’ idiots.
If the Mayans are correct, then today is the drop-dead date, the point of no return, and we don’t have to worry about the lockout anymore. If they’re wrong, it’s the first day of winter, two days away from Festivus!!!!!!
So we’ll see. Or we won’t.
