Jiants-Gets to start off, then Chiefs-Rams, Skins-Bears, 49ers-Texans at 8, and Seahawks-Broncos (Manning omg!), Cowboys(boooo)-Chargers at 9.
Post your observations and/or rants here.
I think I'll start drinking
I'm washing my hair.
Crack-back blocks are now illegal, something I learned yesterday. The NFL is adding new "player safety" rules more quickly than I can comprehend. Goodell is a damn fool.
The college game isn't too far behind with the new kick off rules this year.
that the Browns forgot that they were the Browns that night. Sorry about your embarrasment.
It's the birmingham dream cruise tonight. Traffic is brutal
The Dream Cruise starts around Ferndale and goes up to Pontiac. Certainly not "the birmingham dream cruise". If you think it's going to end in a mile or two, you will be there until midnight.
The Dream Cruise is one of the best, most authentic summer events of any city in the country. If you love cars (read: if you're a dude) it's a fantastic time. If you don't want to be in the middle of the country's best car show, do yourself and everyone on Woodward a favor and make a right or left hand turn. Go down to the next road and drive a mile around. No more traffic.
No I've lived here my whole life, I just don't give a fuck about cars
There's a show called NFL AM? Who the hell watches it? I thought BTN had some seriously shady programming.
Edit: Who's even supposed to watch it? Marketing types create a fictional character to represent the target demographic. For example,
"Jason is a 30-something, divorced Cleveland Browns fan. His living room has a 64" television sitting on the floor, a couch with no legs, wires running from the DirecTv dish sitting on the apartment balcony, and several weeks-old pizza boxes stacked in a corner that likely have ants feeding on the leftover cheese. He hasn't attempted to find work in over a year, watches five hours of Sports Center each day, and wears his Bernie Kosar jersey on first dates. In his (significant) free time, he contributes heavily to Bucknuts.com and photobombs family pictures with his trademark tilted head."
Who's less interested in winning their game on TV now(!), the Jets, the Giants, or Illinois, winner of the 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on BTN's Classic College Football?
Sanchez INT returned 77 yards for a TD, Giants up 13-0 2:03 2Q.
QUICK, BRING IN TEBOW!!!!
KC getting spanked by the Rams. Maybe I should not have picked KC for the NFL "Wurst-to-First" thread the other day.
Listened to the Titans game on NFL.com radio with the Titans homie station. The commentators were absolutely giddy about Martin. Besides his recorded tackle, the radio guys attributed someone else's sack to the QB seeing Martin coming at him and being distracted from the sack-man coming from the other side.
And Tim Jamison, who'd been on and off the Texans' practice squad for 2-3 years, was listed yesterday as starter at DE and was credited with a tackle, 3 assists, a sack, a tackle-for-loss and 2 QB hurries.
Junior didn't play again-- last week read that he had a groin strain. Braylon was targeted for one pass, didn't catch. But this was from the gamebook, so who knows how much he played or how well.
Stevie Brown is now playing for the Giants. Heard his name mentioned when a penalty was called, but the penalty went on the "other" guy. Former Giant Manningham was listed as starter for the 49ers but no catch (targeted once).
Ricky Stanzi is now in charge of the KC offense. It's bringing back a lot of memories of Mom and apple pie.
Houston returns a punt 85 yards for a TD, now up 20-9 over SF 10:51 Q4.
Very excited for the Texans this year.
Yup, watching mojitos and drinking football
