With news of the lockout ending, football fans around the world are in a state of jubilation and as everyone was watching the joint press conference they were treated to a touching scene between Colts Center Jeff Saturday and Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who is grieving the recent loss of his wife, Myra to cancer, embracing each other. It symbolizes a reconciliation between two opposing forces: owner representative with player representative, rival with rival (The Colts and Patriots have been one of the NFL's most intense rivalries over the past decade). This day was four months (136 days to be more accurate) in the making. Four long months of mediating, suing, ranting, and posturing are finally done and some of the more Twitter-active players Jaguar players couldn't be happier.
Maurice Jones-Drew, the main engine that drives the Jaguars offense, was channeling his inner Bart Scott:
RT @katiemcarp: @Jones_Drew32 yeah!!! cannot wait!!!! <—- (bart scott voice)
"Game On, Game On" (Wayne and Garth voice) #LockoutLifted
Second year Defensive End Austen Lane , who also seems to be a rising star in the Twitter world, brought up a Hangover reference.
WE ARE BACK…..! WE R GETTTING FOOTBALL BACK!!!!!!! (Stu from the Hangover voice)
So, as the chaos of Free agency, training camp, and the preseason starts to unfold in the next couple of days and weeks, every fan can stand up proudly and triumphantly yell "WE ARE BACK!!!" Ladies and gentlemen, WE HAVE FOOTBALL!!!!Tags: Kirk Morrison, Maurice-Jones Drew
