You’re an NFL junkie if…
You sit in your office cubicle shortly after the regular season ends, looking at who your team will play next year. You already know your divisional opponents. That’s easy. If you’re slightly more advanced, you already know the out-of-conference division foes your team will face next season.
If you’re a true NFL junkie, you even figured out the three other conference opponents you’ll play based on where you finished in the previous season!
Does that sound weird? Do you plan vacation time around football games? Do you know when you’ll visit Seattle, JerryWorld, Miami, Lambeau Field and beginning this season (for the first time in 21 years) Los Angeles?
In order to justify these expenses to your other half, will you take that person to Pike Place Market, the original Neiman Marcus, South Beach, Titletown and Runyon Canyon?
If you are that person, these two tweets would’ve made you feel awfully hot and bothered!
That tweet is basically an announcement for announcement’s sake by Brian McCarthy, @NFLprguy for the National Football League. It means nothing until you see the next tweet.
The 2016 NFL Schedule will be released tonight at 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacific! The schedule release party will be televised on ESPN from 8pm-9pm with coverage moving to ESPN 2 beginning at 9pm and will end at 10pm.
The NFL Network will also provide coverage from 8pm-11pm. Get this: A three-hour special providing wall-to-wall coverage hosted by Rich Eisen and featuring analysts Eric Davis, Kurt Warner, Shaun O’Hara, Brian Billick and Michael Silver. Will they attempt to pick the Super Bowl champion in April? Nah!
Both ESPN and the NFL Network will break down the entire 2016 NFL regular season schedule, division by division, analyzing the top matchups and primetime games, including the 18-game Thursday Night Football schedule on CBS, NBC and NFL Network, according to NFL Communications.
Get your credit cards out, put your calendars on the table and draft those emails! You can plan the last four months (plus the first week of January) of your year tonight!
Runyon Canyon here I come!
