Here in the United States, the most important part of the year is upon us. In fact, the most important part of the year is not Christmas (well not for Christmas’ sake, anyway). It’s not the Fourth of July. It’s not Thanksgiving Day (Again, it partially is because of typical post-banquet festivities which include pigskins and gridirons). No, the most important time of the year in the United States is the beginning of football season.
Training camps started for most of the NFL teams this past week and bloggers are covering their team camps nicely. Here are some links from around the league:
- Matt Mosely’s Cowboys Blog – Dallas Cowboys coverage courtesy of the Dallas Morning News. Oh please, Matt, tell us how much you love Terrell Owens and Bill Parcells?
- Seahawks Insider – Mike Sando from the Seattle News-Tribune follows the Seattle Seahawks as they try hard to bounce back from a disappointing Super Bowl XL loss
- DawgWire reminds us that despite popular opinion, there actually is a professional football team in Cleveland – and apparently they mean business. Umm, yeah!
- Patriots Blog gives us the perspective of all New England Patriot hopefuls this year.
There’s plenty more where they came from.
By the way, for those following the ridiculous salary negotiations between first round draft pick Reggie Bush and the New Orleans Saints, there are some rumors coming out of the Big Easy tonight. The unconfirmed rumors state that, if the Saints and Bush cannot reach a contract agreement, then the organization will be forced to take down its website. Nobody else on the team knows how to put three “w’s” together. :)
And that, my friends, is your moment of zen.
