|Bruins Messy in Season Opener Against Jets||Patriots Sign RB Dion Lewis to 2-Year Contract Extension||The Yankees Lost, Ellsbury Got Benched, and I’m Still Giddy||Three Red Sox Strengths|
It may be late March and you are engrossed in Red Sox spring training, the Celtics run towards the playoffs and who knows, maybe even a little Bruins. But it’s time to talk football yet again! The NFL announced yesterday that the Patriots will play the Bills on Monday Night Football for week 1.
Of course if the divisional rivalry wasn’t enough, it will be the Buffalo debut of Terrell Owens and a chance for the Pats to shut him up once again. The game will be part of the annual stupid double header ritual ESPN puts on every first Monday night of the season. Game time will be 7pm here on the east coast.
My Take: Love the fact that we get to see T.O. in the first week of the season and even better that a nationally televised audience will get to see us shut him down. Of course, we’ll have to deal with hours and hours of ESPN talk about T.O., but that’s just how Bill Belichick likes it.
