If you haven't yet seen the poem written and recited by Arizona Cardinals receiver Steve Breaston … well, where have you been?

We talked with Steve on Monday about the inspiration for the poem (which really talks about how fans are being affected by the lockout more than anything else), how the lockout is affecting his offseason, whether he's more optimistic about an end to the labor dispute with all the rumors about the owners and players finding common ground, and many more things. It's well worth a listen!
