Hello there. My name is Brendan O'Hare and I will be "live blogging" this week's NFL preseason action (or inaction, depending on how excited you are to watch a slew of games that will not resemble actual regular action).

I have always been intrigued by the possibility of doing some sort of live blog or live mailbag and the brilliant editors at Bleacher Report have entrusted me with such a task. I have been given permission to "crack wise" about the games, which I do better than anyone else I know.

Luckily, I tend to make fun of most things I watch, so that has made the NFL preseason bearable so far. The problem is, Week 4 is the most unnecessary of the disposables and will consist mostly of second-stringers becoming brief first-stringers. I plan on watching the "action" from 7 PM until 10 PM, or whenever I begin to sprout a peptic ulcer due to anger/disappointment.

In order for me to avoid having a peptic ulcer, please keep me company. Ask me questions about the NFL, or whatever, in the comments section and I will do my best to answer them—as long as they don't totally suck.

In case you want to watch along with me for some reason, I will be watching the games on NFL Network, which goes to-and-from games as the action increases.

Honestly, all I had planned for this evening was eating ice cream and listening to the new The-Dream mixtape, so maybe this could be a nice change of pace.

Join me, won't you?
