The news began to emerge as early as yesterday afternoon. By the evening, we had some assurance that a deal was imminent, and before we went to bed it was all but official. Naturally, Twitter was abuzz. 

First came the initial excitement.

who I heard lost a buttload of money on that Packers game. Following Jesus, naturally, there was Kevin from The Office.

Here was my take last night: "sounds like we can get back to complaining about the regular refs instead of the NFL's replacement refs this coming week."
