Football is Back!

The 2006 season (or at least the camp season) has finally started.

The anxiety level, for me, is still quite small since the only holdout at this point is Matt Leinart. Still, we all heard how big a holdout Reggie Bush would be, and his holdout was rather brief. That said, I suspect we'll have a Philip Rivers type holdout. In 2004, Rivers held out for most of training camp, thereby ceding the job to Drew Brees. It prevented him from starting for two years. There are even higher hopes for Leinart, but even if he doesn't show for training camp, I can rest well in the knowledge that Kurt Warner and John Navarre are there.

This is the year! Twelve days to the opening of the stadium!

Neil Rackers Rules

Okay, so I'm partisan, but the new NFL Network commercial with Neil Rackers is awesome. Speaking of Fantasy Football, he ends the commercial with, "You need a kicker, right? Pick me."

I Gotta Wear Shades

I went to Disneyland (see my main blog for details). While walking through the Downtown Disney area, I saw a guy wearing a Matt Leinart Cardinals jersey. Oh, joy!

Greed Takes a Holiday

The Cardinals have announced their parking prices for the coming season, and wonderfully, the price is $0.00.

Well, sort of.

As part of the paying back for the stadium process, all ticket holders must pay a facility fee of $4.25. I had already chalked that up to stadium construction cost, but as luck would have it, it's also being considered my payment for parking at the facility. Wow. So while I'm paying $79.25 per game for my tickets, my parking has gone from $5 per game to nothing.

Just another in a continuing stream of smiles on the way to shocking the NFL with a Super Bowl win.
