NFL Week 1

55 Days Until Election Day

There was no preseason, no big loss there from my perspective, but the NFL regular season is actually about to kick off, as scheduled. Over the past six months, nothing has really gone according to schedule, so this is perhaps a good thing. It will be weird though to see games played in empty stadiums as well as the legitimate questions about what might happen if virus outbreaks among teams occur.

Think about it though, back in March and pretty much all the way through most of July, there were no sports at all. People were at home doing puzzles and whatnot as our horrific President, complicit in the manslaughter of tens of thousands of his citizens, deliberately lied about and downplayed what we were going through. The last Super Bowl sure was exciting. Had we had a non sociopath in the Oval Office, we might be having this season begin, with crowds and all, as if things were basically back to normal, because we would have defeated the virus. At least, there will be a lot of sports to watch on tv, even as the Presidential election heads for the stretch. The National Football League, Stanley Cup Championship, the NBA Championship, and Major League Baseball postseason are all on the cusp of happening. There will also be College Football, though not for some states and conferences. Let us be glad for what we can appreciate sportswise and hope that as soon as possible all these leagues can return to the schedules and circumstances under which we became accustomed.

As always, and as I have done for 16 seasons now on here, these list of games are not "predictions", but whom I want to win. In games involving NFC teams, I just want what is best for the Chicago Bears and in purely AFC matchups, I pretty much just go with a personal preference.

Finally, just a note that this season the team referred to as "Washington" is the one formerly known as the "Redskins" before America became woke. I just hope that we do not wind up having to get rid of the name "Washington."
