Of course I'm talking about the beginning of football season! What did you think I meant?
We don't have cable at my house, and this is the hardest time of year to deal with that. That's why I like to watch the little snippets of Sports Center available at the ESPN website. You can catch some of the highlights you might've missed from yesterday there. You may not be able to see coverage of your favorite team but I suspect that you sometimes have the same problem even if you have 100+ channels.
There's only one real David & Goliath story to report: Oklahoma was upset by BYU last night after OU quarterback and last year's Heisman Trophy winner, Sam Bradford, had his throwing arm crunched by a BYU linebacker.
- On a more important note, Memphis and Ole Miss play this afternoon.
- On a much more important note, Michael Crabtree, a 2009 draftee and very important part of my fantasy team's wide-receiver picture, still hasn't signed with the 49ers, according to his unofficial spokesman/agent, who is none other than Deion Sanders. A talented rookie who is acting like a prima donna turns out to have Neon Deion for a close advisor? Shocking. Maybe Mr. Sanders thinks you can get more, but $20 million still seems like a lot of money to me, kid.
- On a much, much more important note, the Titans open their season Thursday night in Pittsburgh against the hated Steelers. NBC is carrying the game at 7:30/8:30.
