The NFL season starts in less than an hour and I am giddy. Are you ready for some football? Yes, I am. You know that Staples commercial where the father is skipping around the store, kicking up his heels, while “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays in the background, as the miserable kids face a return to school? That’s how I feel about the NFL. It IS the most wonderful time of the year. I love football. And because the NFL season is only 18 weeks (16 games), every game really counts, unlike baseball and basketball, where you can stop paying attention for a few weeks and not miss a thing. I am currently planning a trip to Brazil and a major consideration in said planning is the NFL season. I am not going during the playoffs. I can’t imagine Brazil TV is going to be overly concerned about showing the NFL playoffs. And that’s not going to fly with me.

Anyway, here’s what I’d like to see in week one – Brett Favre throw for 500 yards, the Saints give the city of New Orleans a boost by pulling off a win, and the Browns to beat the Bengals in Cleveland. Why are the Browns and Bengals playing each other in week one? That’s absurd.

This year, I am a Jets season-ticket holder for the first time ever. I can guarantee you some drunken postings on Sundays this fall.
