This Sunday is special to many people for many reasons.

This day marks the tenth year since the horrific events unfolded upon all Americans, now simply termed "9-11." A day where heroes were born and innocent victims perished.

This also happens to be the day the NFL plays football, where all teams but six will begin their seasons. It will be a day of remembrance and rebirth for the National Football League.

With the players strike having smushed everything together, we saw Thursday that teams are still trying to catch up to getting in actual football shape. The play was sloppy, but the novice fan was treated to a high scoring affair.
