Out of the Blue

The NFL held its Hall of Fame game last week, the annual extra-early kick-off to the tackle football preseason. The rest of the league will hold its first games this week. It's always strange to adjust to this transition, as scorching August weather is not what one associates with this winter sport. As a Mets fan, this is usually a welcome break from the team's suffering. But the Mets are in the thick of it this year, and are in the midst of a huge series with the rival Braves, so it makes the coming of football seem especially incongruous.
