CHARLOTTE, September 5, 2012—The National Football League is back, so it is time for Narcotics For Leatherheads (NFL).
Every week, from a different sportsbar in America, the point spreads on every game will be offered along with predictions.
After the games are over, a link to the TYGRRRR EXPRESS will contain a recap of every single game. Those recaps will run about 10,000…yes, 10,000 words. Think of it as Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback except no mere mortal will ever reach his level.
The opening Wednesday night game will be watched from a sportsbar in Charlotte, North Carolina, while the Sunday games will be enjoyed in Asheville a couple of hours away.
So whatever team you root for, just thank almighty God that professional football has returned. There is nothing in this world like it. On the eighth day, God flipped a coin in the air, and then uttered those words.
“Gentlemen…let’s play football.”
This concludes “the other” Sunday bible study.
