08:19 AM ET 11.13 | The phrase "So close, and yet so far" seems appropriate these days when it comes to the lockout. While both sides took a reprieve Monday to attend the Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Toronto, there is no guarantee when they'll bargain again, though it appears it will next be in Canada and not New York City. "The NHL is not ready to make a deal yet," said one source, who has had a steady pulse on these talks since September. "Gary [Bettman] has a date in mind to play, and we're not there yet." ... Right now, the earliest the NHL could play seems to be Dec. 1. Many say that Jan. 1 is the last date to get a "meaningful" number of games in on an abbreviated schedule.

Actually no. It's with some gal named Paula Broadwell who has parking privileges at the Pentagon.

I believe the Clinton's have already copyrighted that title

November 13, 2012  10:59 AM ET

I thought Clinton's was "Devil with a blue dress on?

"So close, and yet so far" Are we talking U2 songs? I think Running To Stand Still makes sense here.

...dang, the U2 song is Farawy, So Close. That also makes sense.

That's right. I hear the Lewinski's have copyrighted the "The last time I voted Democrat it put a bad taste in my mouth"
