    Here we are. Kickoff for the 2012 season.

    Who do you have? Cowboys or Giants?

    Is it just me or is a helicopter fly over just not quite as inspiring as a couple of screaming jets? For the second time this week I'll say it....what where the hot air balloons busy?

    Giants are of course forever my number one team. Small price to pay last night for a super bowl win. I don't hate any teams in particular.

    All night and no mention of the bounty suspensions being reversed thanks to the appeal? Shocked!

    Here I'll mention them. The bounty suspensions for the players were reversed. An independant review found that Goodell doesn't have the power to suspend them using the means that he did. The secret investigation was deemed to be over reaching of his powers and the proof was never revealed. Turns out the truth can set you free after all.

    Here we go how many points do the Titans lose by today? Another 59-0 game? Young QB who doesn't have his timing down vs Brady. Ouch

    49ers beat Green Bay. They have to be early season faves... Nice to see Peyton Manning gety the win.

    I got chills watching Peyton back on the field. It took a few series and the switch to the hurry up, but instead of looking old, he looked like his old self. It's still weird seeing him in a Broncos uniform but I will be pulling for him all year. I'm still a Colts fan, but their rebuild will take patience. For now it looks like I can take solace in the fact that I can at least still watch Manning play and win games. :)

    Even if the db hadn't been there, Tebow didn't look ready to catch the football. It would have bounced off his helmet.

    Surprised this Packers-Seahawks game hasn't hit the board here.

    Watched my first game in an American sports bar and was treated to the fact that the majority of American fans don't know the rules outside the standard calls, but believe they do just like majority of Canadian fans don't know the rules outside the standard calls, but believe they do.

    It's all over twitter. And the internet. After watching Jake Ireland, a supposed "experienced" official with over 30 years of reffing CFL games & his siren Tom Higgins defend him after he screwed the Stamps over yesterday, it's hard for me to feel sorry for the Packers.

    Quite possibly the funniest thing I've ever seen.
