Devin Hester Finally Ends Extremely Long Holdout

After two days of sobbing uncontrollably into their mustaches, Bears fans can smile and eat their deep dish pizzas topped with polish sausages and sauerkraut again: Devin Hester is finally back in camp!

The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES reports that Hester’s two-day holdout ended as abruptly as it began this morning, when the wily return man “reported at breakfast this morning, in time for a morning weightlifting session and today’s 3 p.m. practice.”

Why the sudden change in heart?

ROTOWORLD probably said it best with this comment yesterday:

This one’s easy to see through; Hester is paying $15,000+ in daily fines and would lose a credited year by holding out past August 5, postponing his ability to hit unrestricted free agency in 2010. Hester’s agent would be doing his client a huge disservice by letting him skip more than two weeks of work.

And while it wasn’t exactly a hunger strike, Hester might have made an even greater sacrifice than the Gandhis of the world by giving up the ability to buy another one these bad boys:

Devin Hester, they’re right about you. You are ridiculous!
