How To Survive The NFL Lockout
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are like me you were waiting, no salvating on the fact that Sep would be the start of America's game. It would seem our favorite American past time may not happen. The funny thing is NFL players are forcasting more crime while women everywhere breathe a sigh of relief. If your like me you are probably thinking this really sucks. In a multibillion dollar entertainment buisness where you have captured America's attention you can't agree to agree? I probably could make arguements all day. My intention is really to inform NFL fans that this isn't the end of the world that's not til Dec 21 2012 right.

How to Survive the Dreaded Lock-out

My son is an extreme version of this, a true NFL fan. When the Patriots lost last year in the play-offs, his sister threw down his extra Tom Brady jersey and proceeded to jump on it. My son lost it and started choking her all over a NFL football game. When they had both calmed down, I asked him why did you choke your sister. My son replied," she jumped on Tom Brady." No she jumped on his jersey not the actual player. To a kid in that instant she had actually hurt the team. Well this lock-out will hurt fans even more. So first step of survival is to realize the NFL is about a game and about money.

The second survival step is to change your overall perception of the game of Football. As we all know College Football will begin on schedule as it always has. I believe if you look at Saturday as the new Sunday for football it may help. Think of it as a coping mechanism for the NFL addicts. (Like myself)

For the third survival step I would suggests if you own Madden NFL play your own season. Funny, I know but if you are addicted to NFL football it can help. Yes, I know not the real thing, like a woman but hey I gave it a try. You might even be able to take the Browns to the Superbowl vs the Panthers.

My fourth survival step don't commit crimes in the name of the NFL lock-out. The fact that you committed a crime will not really matter to the NFL franchise. It will only effect you and the ones that love you. It's just a game people. I know I had to come to the realization. It was hard. I cried.

My Final survival step in my opinion my help you spiritually. Churches all over this nation are going to be rejoicing cause of the lock-out. Attend church on Sunday. During NFL hours churches are going to be open. I would get some spirituality out of all this. Take care NFL fans and weather storm
