NFL Lockout: It's Over!

Rejoice nation, the NFL lockout is a thing of the past. It is not official, and isn't expected to be made official until Monday. However, it seems that officialness is a mere formality. ESPN offers us this:

The NFL Players Association and the league's owners have reached agreement on the remaining points needed in their 10-year labor deal, sources from both sides said.

Despite the fact the new agreement will require a majority vote from the players, that part of the deal between the two sides is considered a formality, according to sources.

The NFLPA is making plans for a major press conference Monday. But first the player reps' executive committee is scheduled to fly to Washington, D.C., on Sunday so they can vote Monday.

...Plus, no collective bargaining agreement has ever been turned down by the players when approved by leadership.

Happy days are here again!
