Now that the NFL Lockout is over, we can turn our collective sighs of disapproval and general malaise completely toward the NBA Lockout (unless you have a real hard-on for chastising MLB officiating). I was fortunate enough to choose a season tickets “benefits” package from the Orlando Magic in case the season doesn’t begin on time and games are missed. I, of course, selected the package that requires Magic dancers to come to my house each morning and wake me up, but according to my ticket rep, that’s not an actual option and I need to “stop sending requests for autographed panties.”
Regardless, it was a harrowing reminder that this lockout is making absolutely no progress, and maybe it’s just because the NFL hogged the spotlight, but it seems like the NBA owners and players aren’t even trying. Thankfully, the Old Spice guy is here to provide us with a little humor to help us fans get through this mess, you know, before we completely abandon the NBA over the next few months.
