It's what we all anticipated as a strong possibility after the signing of Owens; a season opening primetime game. But with the opponent set, something tells me T.O. will be only a shadow of the man the spotlight will be shining on.
Seriously, why are Buffalo fans going to be forced to endure another horrific primetime affair, one that is almost guaranteed to end in disaster? The more operative question however, may be to ask why it is that every single time the Bills play the Patriots on national TV, some “superstar” is heading back into the line-up for the first time in a long time, and why are we forced to listen to announcers drone on about how “courageous,” “classy,” “insert adjective here” they are.
Many, I'm sure, are already preparing their “Buffalo fans are whiners” card, and probably with some degree of merit, but if you were forced to listen to the garbage that we'll be listening to as the 2009 NFL season gets underway, you'd likely hate New England as much as we do.
On the other hand, for those of you interested in finding out what type of shampoo Tom Brady uses to get his perfect hair ready for football Sunday's, expect to find out opening weekend. If you're interested to hear about his long and difficult recovery, no need to watch the entire game, because I assure you that if you tune in at any time throughout the evening, it will be there for you to see/hear.
As for T.O., this may be the best recipe for him to go on a season opening tirade, because chances are good that in front of a national audience, the Bills will be trounced, and he'll be left as frustrated as the fans that are learning of Brady's preference for either fabric softener, or dryer sheets.
You know, I should be happy about this, having my team open their season on Monday Night Football, with T.O. ready to put us back on the map, but instead I'm going to suffer through a 3-hour snooze fest about Tom Brady, and yet another memory of a one-sided affair in which hoodie will likely run up the score.
But remember, we'll at least have the privilege of watching the “classiest” team in the NFL, and the greatest player to ever set foot on a football field!
