Well it’s not much, but tonight at least we will be able to tune into some football with the Hall of Fame game marking the start of the Preseason for the 2015-2016 NFL campaign. It’s been a rough two months for many sports fans because after the electric finals in both the NHL and NBA playoffs, we were merely left with the middle part of the MLB season where it seems like the games don’t even matter. I for one will tune in (at least for the first quarter) to the hall of fame game, just to get a little bit of the football juices flowing. Soon everyone will be back at school and
everyone’s my weekends are going to be completely dominated by football, and I for one could not be more excited. Football season rolling into the winter sport season is without a doubt the best time of year.
This NFL season is going to be interesting to say the least. On one hand you have the whole deflate gate scandal which will impact the league in one way or the other, it’s too soon to speculate now. On the other hand there have been so many big moves this offseason, the landscape of the league is much different from this time last season. The Bill’s are now under the Rex Ryan regime, Chip Kelly changed everything about the eagles with a new quarterback and bringing in the best Running Back in the league last year in DeMarco Murray. This rookie class has the opportunity to be one of the best classes ever, starting that off right with the Buccaneers and Titans squaring off week one, those teams went #1 and #2 in the draft respectfully, both with young studs under Center that should be an interesting game.
I’m just glad that the season is coming back, the middle of the summer is a real dead zone when it comes to the sports world. Basically all you have is baseball, and while there is nothing wrong with baseball i Know personally I can watch football all day everyday but baseball can get a bit slow for me to dedicate most of my time to it. Not to mention with the season coming up the whole deflate-gate situation is bound to clear up soon which as a sports fan in general, I thank god it’s ending. It as gotten so tiring having to be teased for weeks for new information that we end up finding out isn’t even necessarily true. All the drama needs to end and we need to just go back to watching football, not having to listen to all these reports and bickering over some partially “deflated” balls.
Had to cut myself off from going on a rant. Anyways, I hope you tune in to the HOF game, because I know its just a preseason game, but seeing teams out there will get you in the mood for the season which is a lot closer than you’d think.
