Thursday Football

13 11 2008

 The Pats are playing the Jets tonight. I have no idea why they are playing on a Thursday night. If someone could tell me, that would be great.

 This should be a really good game. Both teams are 6-3 and I hear Ty Law will be playing in this one. I always liked him. 

 In other Pats news, Tom Brady has been in Foxboro working out. This is really good news as he had a potentially life threatening POSToperative staph infection. Luckily it was caught early and treated with IV antibiotics. You can read about it here.

Yep, I missed “Post-operative,” too. You’re wicked smaht, you know that?

I think the Thursday games are plays to get more football into prime time; I’m not sure there’s more to it than that, but I bet Falcon can tell us…

Thursday Night Football started on the NFL Network two years ago (I think) and the prime time thing would be great except that a lot of people, including me, don’t get the NFL Network as part of our cable package. When the idea of doing Thursday games was getting tossed around, I think other networks wanted to do it, but the NFL Network got the rights. It’s only a limited number of games though, which is there aren’t Thursday games for the first half of the season. Ultimately, I’d guess that it’s all about money. 🙂

Interesting note: The NFL Network was set to air the Patriots’ attempt at going 16-0, but other networks ended up airing it in simulcast so that more of the public would be able to see the historical game.

For some reason I want to say the NFL did Thursday night games before NFL Network came around (although Thanksgiving was always the first one of the season), but I could be wrong.

Auntie, I’ll buy you a White Buffalo pizza from your favorite spot once a month for the rest of my life if you keep putting pictures like that up here every day. 🙂
