LOCKOUT'S OVER.... (for the #nfl at least).
After days of massive backlash from fans, sports pundits, bloggers and such, the NFL finally got the hint and took care of business. They went back to the negotiating table and hammered out a deal with the National Football League Referee Association. As a result, starting with tonight's game (Cleveland Browns vs Baltimore Ravens), there will be competent referees on the field again. And not a moment too soon. The NFL had to get this done as the PR backlash was becoming a legitimate threat on the brand name. And so they did. Both parties put aside their egos and got a deal done, for the betterment of the brand. It's that simple.
Now if hockey could only take a page from this book. *Le Sigh*
Join us tonight as we welcome back the REAL referees during the Browns & Ravens game (8pm w/audio)! Enjoy Corona/ Corona Light buckets (5/$25) or Coors Light pints ($4) until 11pm!
Oh, and while you're here, make sure to try out the SOUTHERN TIER PUMKING! If you thought the Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin was awesome, you have to try the Pumking! It's always in demand and the supply is always short; Put it this way- we had to order this in July and still kept our fingers crossed to get some. And this year we were lucky enough to get a couple of sixtels. So try it out now while we have it in stock. Once it's gone...
