There is a bit of bright news on the labor front.
No, there has not been a major offer.
No, the two sides have not come to a meeting of the minds.
No, the lockout is not over.
But, it appears that even if there is no football in 2011, there at least will be a Falcons’ 2011-2012 cheerleaders calendar.
Now, we have something to celebrate and look forward to!
The lovely 2011 squad is set to depart Thursday for the lovely sandy beaches of Bermuda for their annual swimsuit calendar photo shoot.
The squad will be shooting all weekend and you can get updates on the team website from cheerleader correspondent Sara D. (ASIDE: I was fortunate enough to serve as judge that helped to select the squad. However, due to the previously planned Ledbetter Family Reunion, I will not be able to join the ladies in Bermuda.)
