It’s a Little Chewy

Sunday morning. Maryland escaped against JMU the night before. The NFL season is about to really get started. Despite the gorgeous weather I know I’ll be locked in the basement with the Sunday Ticket from 1pm on, so the day starts with a family outing for breakfast. We live in an All-American city with a new town square. My youngest daughter pulls the Red Flyer wagon to the healthy diner.

The little one is slightly ashamed of the way her Terps performed the night before.

The kids love the chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream. The adults have omelettes. We decide we’ll stroll the long way home and stop at the playground. We get outside and as the kids pile into the wagon the wife says, “Look at the parking meter.” Apparently someone had a better night than the Terps.

Oh How I’ve Missed Those Ears

Perhaps the greatest innovation in fandom since cheerleaders, The Red Zone Channel in HD.

Today’s the day. The real opening day. Thirteen games including the Cowboys at Tampa Bay. That game is at 1pm so at approximately 4:22pm I’ll be turning the dial to DirecTV channel 703. For the rest of the day I’ll let Andrew Siciliano and his glorious ears take me to the best action in the NFL as it happens. Honestly I don’t know how we did it a decade ago. Getting two games on a Sunday and seeing scores from around the league every 20 minutes or so. Oh what an age we live in. Thank you Sunday Ticket, and thank you Red Zone Channel. You’re the reason the terrorists hate us, and for that I love you.
