What's the best way to celebrate the NFL lockout being lifted by Judge Susan Nelson? For Seattle Seahawks linebacker Aaron Curry, a trip to Puerto Rico is in order. Because why not celebrate the uncertainty of the appeals process with trip to the tropics after hanging in uncertainty for the last few months. Those worries about missed game checks and lack of finances are gone! The lockout is over!â†µ
Curry tweeted his plans shortly after Nelson released her ruling on Monday. Players everywhere are celebrating, though the fight is far from over and appeals are expected.â†µâ†µ
Lockout lifted for now!! I can only expect more appeals!!! But who cares Puerto Rico here I come!!â†µ
While the lockout was lifted, at least temporarily, the NFL is expected to request a stay. It all means the NFL is still under a cloud of uncertainty and with the NFL Draft a few days away, it's about to get wild.â†µ
If I'm a player, I'm happy with the ruling, but still worried about missing paychecks. If there's one thing the lockout should have taught players, it's fiscal responsibility and saving, not spending like there's no tomorrow.
