Written by 

NFL lockoutThe NFL and the NFLPA broke on Friday, and it appears they're inching closer to a deal.

The two sides released a joint statement of Friday.

"The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work throughout this weekend.

"We will continue to respect the confidentially orders of Chief Magistrate Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in the process continue," the statement reads.

"I don't understand how that helps you become head and shoulders the best player maybe in the last decade in college football, maybe longer. "I don't see how that translates onto the field, so I don't know how would give that back."  Bush hasn't returned the Heisman which remains on loan to the San Diego Hall of Champions; is out with "The 50 Most  Annoying People in Sports Today." The top 10: 1. Dick Vitale exclamatory basketball announcer; Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B; 3. Brett Favre, retired (maybe)4. Q. LeBron James, Heat star; 5. Joe Buck, sportscaster; 6.

Ex LSU pitcher Brian Wilson showed up at the ESPYs the other night in a skin-tight Spandex tuxedo with an orange bow tie. The Giants' relief pitcher also sports the world's most fake-looking real beard a la Charlie Sheen. I feel for Brian Wilson The Original, the Beach Boys founder and creative force...
