Summer's almost done now, the signs of it ending are becoming more ubiquitous by the moment. Even if it hasn't cooled off completely outside, our living rooms are being beamed with messages: Back to school sales, "fall" collections at stores, and, luckily for us—football.
High schools are in full gear, running out through banners this weekend all over the country. Colleges will soon follow. And while the NFL is still mired in the "please-don't-let-my-star-player-get-injured" part of the year (sorry, Eagles fans), that wonderful day when our favorite league fires back up for real is fast approaching.
In the meantime, though we're stuck in the preseason, at least we get a nationally televised game featuring Andrew Luck's and RGIII's teams (otherwise known as Colts vs. Redskins). Plus some other good stuff, too.
