With the NFL season winding down, I cannot help but notice the 500lb elephant in the room…What the HELL are GUYS going to do if the NFL lockout actually happens!?

The real question here is not what the owners hope to accomplish in the long term by ditching the 2011 season, or even what will the players do and how will this affect them … no no, my friend, the real question is what are WE going to do with all this extra time on our hands?

We all know that men are inherently more creative when we are bored…that is why I am slightly excited, and scared at the same time. Here is what I see happening, and this is based off of scientific research and logic…or something close to it.
