Even though football has been back for a couple of weeks, the preseason is just a warm-up, a teaser if you will, for the regular season. Teams get to take the field against other teams, knock the dust off, work out some kinks, and figure out who will be starting and who will, unfortunately, be cut. Come Thursday, September 8, football is really back and what better way to kick it off than with the reigning Super Bowl Champs, the Green Bay Packers, hosting my team, the previous year's Super Bowl Champs, the New Orleans Saints. (This is where I say that I welcome corporate sponsors for my travels throughout the NFL season.)
This NBC Sports NFL Opening Kickoff promo video warms my heart and makes me smile. Back to football. Who Dat!
What are your plans for opening kickoff? (This is where I state again that I will gladly make plans to attend the game in Green Bay if a company/brand wants to sponsor my trip.)
