Back to Football!

Summer is coming to its end so the vacations are ending, the days are getting shorter, the kids will be going back to school and football is back. It’s been a long offseason with its fair share of headlines, but the players are strapping on the helmets and heading back to the field. This has a few meanings for football fans.

Preseason Games All Week

We all know preseason games mean nothing, but it is the delicious appetizer that will curb the starvation for the regular season games. Also some fans enjoy the preseason because lower drafted players and undrafted players get their share of playing time. Preseason is a time of hope for less fortunate teams and their fans.

Fantasy Football
Fantasy Football has taken watching, rooting, and loving football to a whole new level. Not only can you root for your favorite franchise to win their games each week, but for the individual players that make up your fantasy roster. Since the dawn of time man has enjoyed the thrill of crushing his opponents in battle, and that doubles for destroying your buddies’ hopes of making your leagues playoffs this year. Moms, prepare to be taking you little ones to their soccer games, because for the next five months dad will love his fantasy team more than you.

Regular Season Approaching
Preseason football in August means the regular season is right around the corner. Pretty soon fans will be packing glorious stadiums across the country to watch their favorite franchises compete in battle for a chance at making the playoffs. The NFL regular season is a drama of wins an losses that will lead one team to the promise land. 

You know who else loves all of these wonderful things? The NFL. Preseason games, fantasy football and regular season games all result in revenue for the NFL and that is never a bad thing. These events bring in sales for ticketing, concessions, broadcasting and so much more. Roger Goodell and Friends are licking their chops because the money making season is upon us.
