Ladies and Gentlemen!!! I am officially hyped!

I woke up this Sunday morning, too early as usual because between work and school my sleeping schedule is very short.

Sitting on the balcony, smelling the summer rain, thinking of how lame today is going to be...BUT THEN...I remember that this is the LAST Sunday of the year without NFL Football!!

Mind you, next Sunday is just the Tennessee Titans vs Buffalo Bills in the HOF Game... but I don't care!! I'm going to watch those 3rd-string teams go at it like it was the Super Bowl again!! 

It is the first of the many AFL 50-Year Anniversary games, so that will be cool too, because they'll  have the old Oilers and original Bills unis on, which would usually not be a sight for sore eyes, but since it's the first game back, I'll let it pass.

So to my fellow NFL fanatics who have been suffering since the Super Bowl, go ahead, bite the bullet and go to that family picnic, or whatever it is the wife wants you to do today.

Because this is it!

The last Sunday of misery...unless you're a Rams or Lions fan... After this, it's back to the couch/bar with a cold beverage, some good eatin', and the gridiron on the 40'' HD TV!
