Is it just me or is anyone else in town a bit weary of hearing about the NFL draft? I've heard the merits of trading the pick, taking Leinert, Young or Culter for weeks now and am about at the point of just wishing the whole thing could get here and be over with. (For the record: Jake Cutler, still a bad idea for the Titans).
Oh and please don't get me started on T.O. going to the most hated franchise in all football. I hope he and the Cowboys are very happy together and by very happy, I mean they somehow lose every game.
Anyway, the NFL has announced a few of the games
that will lead off the NFL season in September. All of the games look intriguing, though I guess we should apologize to the fans of The Office
now who are going to be up in arms that the show is pre-empted that evening for the Pittsburgh vs Miami game.
Of the five games, I have to admit the one that interests me most is the Washington vs Minnesota game. But that's really because I love the Redskins and any chance for national television exposure for my team is a good thing. I will also admit NBC got a great deal with the first ever game between the Manning brothers as their kick-off to Sunday night football. That one should be hyped through the roof between now and then! (Let me help out: It will be the greatest game ever played between two siblings...until the next one!) And it looks like Fox lost the bet on this deal, only getting the Dallas (yaaaaaaaaaawn
) vs Jacksonville (double yaaaaaaaaaaawn
) contest as their marquee match-up for the opening day of the NFL. Oh well, maybe we'll see the beginning of T.O.'s fade into obscurity. Yeah, that'd be cool.
