Football Time At Last
By: Connor Lenahan
Ah the Hall of Fame game, easily the worst yet most exciting preseason football game of all. Nothing better than watching two teams that want nothing more than to protect their best players play at half speed while benching stars for backups in primetime! Yet that’s the preseason in a nutshell, this one just had added production values.
Yes, tonight’s Colts-Packers contest won’t feature all that much in the way of starting talent, but it does represent something terrific. The NFL is back at long last, as this is the first weekend to feature football since the Super Bowl. The schedule is now filled with football until just after next year’s Super Bowl in February 2017.
We might have to get started somewhere, and it may not be pretty, but the sports season is picking up again. Who needs the “Olympics,” anyway?
