T-3 Days

Okay, so only two draft picks are signed so far, but I'm not panicking. That said, I've done some predicting among my friends. It's shocking how many of them are not on board with my 15-1 prediction.

Okay, so Tennessee might present a bit of a problem. Sure, Philadelphia is good, but are they that good on the road? 15-1, here we come!

Prescott, Here They Come

My first thought was to say, "Here We Come", but then I realized that I'm just an idiot with a blog. That was one of my favorite moments in "Fever Pitch".
  • They let you go to their camp? Actually we just observe. To see who should go and who should stay.
  • And the team takes your advice?

Ah, to understand the true fan. This year is gonna be special.

Just What Are They Saying?

Another preseason poll is out, and the Cards rank only 10th in the NFC in this list. Why, oh why do the Cowboys get so much respect? And why does an aging Brett Favre garner so much hope with a coach who has not yet inspired success for the team? And how in the world did they pick the Lions higher?

I know I'm a homer. But I see the team jumping out to victory in their first five matchups (at NYG, vs StL, at Sea, vs SF, vs Car), then they get two weeks to prepare to host the Titans. Again, I know I'm biased, but I don't see why they can't be 14-0 when they meet the Eagles on 12/24. So 14-1 or 15-0 when they go to Indianapolis in a meaningless game (having locked up homefield advantage throughout the playoffs).

I love the view through these rose colored glasses.

Ten Days and Waiting

While I'm nervous about the lack of signings of draft picks, at least I know that it's common to all of the NFL.

In my Internet wanderings yesterday, I came across an anti-Cardinals site run by someone who has a bit too much time on his hands. His site proclaims his love of the Cowboys (hey, they won six games last year, too) and even boasts a forum for bashing the Cards. I actually enjoyed reading it due to the large number of posts he was forced to delete for violating the "bashers only" rule.

I sure can't wait until even greater success breeds frustration on his part.

The good folks at recently added a feature for posting photos to a blog in line. I'm going to test it out with a photo from the last home game of the year.

My fear is that it will only upload the entire 5MP photo which is too large to post on an ongoing basis. That said, there's Frank Kush Field (inside Sun Devil Stadium) from the perspective of my seat.

Oh, the memories. Snoopy and I share a moment the day before the Cardinals played their most recent postseason game near the Mall of America. Posted by Picasa

Countdown is at 12 Days

It's amazing how slowly time can pass when all too much of your life is consumed by thoughts of a football season. It's all the more maddening when the object of your devotion has rewarded it so seldom. It is in this vein that I anticipate the opening of training camp.

The team is getting ready for the season certainly. I have not yet received my tickets, but the parking passes have arrived along with four additional solicitations to purchase season tickets. Okay, I get it. You have season ticket packages available, and buying one gets me priority at the new stadium (which I already have).

How many hours in 12 days? Around 288? Go Cards!
