08:03 AM ET 07.21 | Wake Visanthe Shiancoe when it's over. [Shiancoe] is tired of hearing optimism that isn't accompanied with results. So after completing a workout on the University of Minnesota campus Wednesday morning on a hot, muggy day, Shiancoe poured some cold water over the four-month NFL lockout. "I'm to the point, man, I'm like, 'Look, just call me when it's ready,'" Shiancoe said. "I don't care about all this other stuff. I don't care about any hypothetical dates. Just give me the date. That's all I care about so I'm going to be ready to go. I'm pretty sure a lot of other people feel the same way I feel. It's been a long, drawn-out ordeal." Shiancoe proved to be right on the money as representatives from all 32 teams, including the Vikings' Steve Hutchinson, failed to vote on a new collective bargaining agreement on Wednesday.

Players weary of false starts? Just players? How about us?

Careful what you wish for, Visanthe. By the end of this season with the Vikings, you're going to wish the CBA never got done. 4-12.

Jesus Otis can turn that water into wine with a wave of his hand. Or beer.

Old Pamela, better. Todays Pamela, well, looks like she was rode hard and put away wet too many times.

Yeah, Baywatch-era Pamela. By now, they're probably hangin' down around her naval.

Each side should get to name three lawyers from the other side, tie them to a goal post and beat them unconscious every day at noon. The CBA would be written and signed by the third day.
