Reggie Bush is facing the NFL lockout with a smile and a tweet.

According to PFT.com, Bush posted messages on his  Facebook and Twitter accounts on Monday saying that he's thankful for the time off  the lockout has given him, as opposed to having to endure the hard work of organized team activities and mini camps.

"Everybody complaining about the lockout! Shoot I'm making the most of it, Bush told PFT.com. "Vacation, rest, relaxing, appearances here and there. I'm good," wrote Bush. "Right about now we would be slaving in 100 degree heat, practicing twice a day, while putting our bodies at risk for nothing."

The Who Dat! would like to see Bush play a full season and avoid injuries. He hasn't produced at times when the team needed him.

Various news accounts have reported that “After that, hundreds of fans lit into Bush, sending him Facebook and Twitter messages telling him he should suck it up and work hard because he's a professional athlete and making millions of dollars --  especially considering that, after the Saints drafted Mark Ingram. Bush himself acknowledged that he's going to be looking for a new team as soon as the lockout ends. Wow! “

Bush responded "FYI my last tweet was a joke," said Bush. "Relax fans damn it, it's called sense of humor. Cry me a river won't you?"

Many of Bush's 1.4 million Facebook fans and 1.6 million Twitter followers have a different sense of humor than he does.

Chances are good that Reggie will take a large cut in his contract to stay here even though he owns a $5 million "party" house in Los Angeles.

Thought for the day: When the smog lifts in Los Angeles, you cans see UCLA. (Reggie went to USC).

Joke of the day is the bumper sticker of the day: “Where The Hell Is Easy Street?"
