According to ESPN, they're able to do so.

After the pro bowl I'll be ready for March to be here as soon as possible so March Madness can help make 1 month go fast. I'm already wanting the 2008 season to be here.

I am too ready for the 2008 season. If the Pirates could make it past June and still be in contention, then the summer wouldn't seem so long.

I'd love it if they contended through September.
