Did someone forget to check the calendar? It’s Wednesday for crying out loud and the 2012 NFL regular season actually kicked-off tonight!
Today should be a holiday!
What’s going on with the NFL? Did someone in the league office forget to check the days of the week?
Are we in a leap year? Did we somehow miss out on a floating holiday?
I’m kidding of course, but in case you didn’t know, the league opted for a Wednesday start so they wouldn’t conflict with President Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.
But Wednesday? Why not wait until Friday? Look, I get it, football’s football and the NFL is king! I just think it’s funny that the league felt it necessary to get the jump on the President… even if it meant starting on Wednesday!
That’s Fouhy on Sports!
