Out of the Blue

It's hard to believe the NFL season begins tonight, especially since it's a Wednesday. For now I'm happy that the Giants are getting underway immediately, though it's going to be more than a little weird following the team's first four games, as they play tonight, 11 days from now, then four days after that, then ten days after that. This is because they are scheduled for four nationally televised games this year, 75% of which are being crammed into the first 25% of the season. Since this is part of the price of being champions, I'm going to avoid complaining about this. Anyone want to see who can pick more winners this year? I'll take the G-men tonight.

Is the site running REEEEAAAAALLY SLOOOOOOWLY for anyone else?

Anyway, despite being a lifelong Giants and Jets fan, in my old bitter age I generally can't be bothered to care about the NFl games until the last quarter of the season, when things get interesting or it's already decided that my teams are a bust. I am an even bigger Hockey fan but I didn't even bother watching my NY Rangers play last season until the middle of the first playoff round.

(P.S. A very special thank you to the L.A. Kings for denying the New Jersey Devils, the team with the most obnoxious and rude fans of any professional sports team, from winning the Stanley Cup and allowing me to rub that in the noses of Devil's fans everywhere.)
