Ok, I’m excited about the new season of football. First because there will be one, second because it’s a new beginning for the Dallas Cowboys, who held promise last year (then they played and lost that promise). I see good things in them again (some still good, others changed for the better) but they have work to do on the offensive line and defensive secondary. Not great places to need work, but you take what you’re dealt and find a way to win. That’s football. I was also excited because this year we were finally going to swap over to satellite to get the NFL Package which would allow me to actually see the ‘Boys play much more often. That plan was crushed by the line of sight requirement and some very tall trees in the back. Something about “protected natural growth…” 🙂 Anyway, we still get the usual coverage, and I’m excited to see things progress.
I know it’s just pre-season, but the things that have excited me so far:
- The Cowboy won. I love that no matter when it happens, and winning a close game, even in pre-season means they have that desire. Check.
- The Eagles got /pwned by Pittsburgh. So much for Dream Team, blah blah blah. Shut up and play, if you win great, but no one gets the trophy for good players or free agegnt moves. /cheer Pittsburgh.
I’ll post more football as the season progresses, but I just wanted to pop in and let you know I’m back posting about football again.
