NFL Returns 9.7.06

Now switching over to the sports side of things, I would like to tell everyone to mark their calendars in anticipation of the return of the greatest season of sports on the planet. The NFL has announced that the first game of the season will be on Thursday, September 7th on NBC. In keeping with recent tradition, the defending Super Bowl champions the Pittsburgh Steelers will host the first game to kick off the new season. Who their opponent will be has yet to be determined.

I would like to go on record as saying that I know who will be the visiting team in the first game of the year. It is highly likely that the Steelers will host my Denver Broncos on Septermber 7th. This is a rematch of the AFC championship game and Pittsburgh does not have a more attractive matchup on their home schedule. The Cincinnati Bengals would have been an option had Carson Palmer not been severely injured in their final playoff game.

Time to get out those foam fingers. Go Broncos!
