Seriously, before you even think about reading or looking at anything else.....click on that picture above. When did Al Michaels and John Madden turn into Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric in The Lost Boys??? Holy crap.
FYI- This is now my new wallpaper. I think you should make it yours.
Onto the live-blog of "Thursday Night Should Be Sunday Night Football In America"!
Quote of the night comes from our friend Lozo and it doesn't even involve the pro game...
"Jimmy Claussen had shoulder surgery on his elbow."- Lou Holtz
8:06- We're live from the RCA Dome!!!!! Football is here and I couldn't be happier. Welcome Back!
Dick Er, Rich Eisen informs us that Keisha Cole is also singing tonight. That's good to know.
THIS IS OOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRR SMALL TOWWWWWWN!
Or something like that. Nice! They went straight into the Our Country commercial. Synergy rules!!!
8:16- I think they purposely put Faith Hill before Kelly Clarkson to make her feel like crap for gaining 50 lbs this offseason.
"This Kiss" ranks number 4 on the list of songs I DO NOT want to hear before a football game. Others include....Sex and Candy by Marcy Playground and Electric Avenue by Eddie Ocean.
FYI- Number 1 on the list of song I WANT to hear is The Divinyls I Touch Myself and/or RATM's Freedom. One or the other.
8:25- That girl can sing! Did I miss Kelly Clarkson??? Dammit. Tell me someone YouTubbed the Frumpster. Oh well.....let's do this!
8:35- Good to see you Al and John. You look much less frightening in HD than you do in that photo above.
"The Season Begins...."- Al Michaels, Thank God!
Did anyone else notice in the open while faith hill was singing that John Madden looked completely uncomfortable walking on that fake red carpet? And we get to see that every Sunday night all year long!- Matt
Oh yes I did Matt, and the video should be up in about 10 minutes! Hilarious.
8:42- Wow that Manning-Bush spot was completely unfunny. Just kick the thing off already. When did they flip the coin by the way? Did I completely miss that?
Wow. Mike McKenzie blasts Addai on the first play and he's down. And he's okay!!! Thank god. My KSK Keeper League Team would be in trouble. Whew.
It appears Marvin Harrison is wearing Billy Dee Williams' mustache.- McBain (Has he ever not had it? LANDO!)
8:45- Sit down Reggie Bush. All of that dancing will not get you by the white special teams guy!
I can't even here John and Al it's so loud in the dome....the Indy D looks amped. Lookout for a bomb....
8:52- Reggie dances again and gets blasted. Just run straight President. Andrea Kramer tells us nothing about Joseph Addai. Great reporting.
3rd down and 6 and Indy smells the draw and just about knocks the Saints out of field goal range.....
Like I said.....Olindo Mare misses the FG.
"Did they get enough plugs for Sprint in that opening or did they need about 30 more?"- Matt, Anything over Our Country. Anything.
8:58- The Colts looked pretty weak until that completion to Dallas Clark. First down. They can really do that all night long if they want to. Another first down with Addai running on 3rd down.
TOUCHDOWN MARVIN HARRISON!!!!
Beautiful pass and catch there. God I love football....isn't it the best? I just can't get over how happy I am that the season is here. That was the longest offseason ever!
9:08- "Monday September 24th you'll meet Chuck."- Al Michaels, Yeah and then Chuck will leave us when he's canceled a week later.
"Jeff Saturday looks like Ron Jeremy with a Helmet on."- OilCanBoyd, Now that's funny...I don't care who you are.
John Madden goes into a five minute convo about how contacts work. Meanwhile Bethea destroys the Saints TE Johnson! 3 and out for the Saints.
