It’s A Tuesday Linkage Thing

Shuffling between offices again today and I could be called back to the home office so I’m trying to squeeze linkage in right now.

NFL Network Announces Its Entire 2010 65 Preseason Game TV Schedule

Ok, I’ve relented to the NFL and will start calling its exhibition games, “preseason games”. I asked an NFL spokesman if the NFL Network schedule of re-airs was coming out today and lo and behold, he sends them to me. It’s one of the reasons why I like dealing with the league. The NFL’s PR […]
