On opening night Thursday, I will deliberately avoid the NFL pre-game for the first 20 minutes or so much as I have avoided all preseason television shows like usual. Over the years, it has begun to feel more like a religious ceremony. It's just football folks. Nope.
We'll see how the commercials go in that first hour too. Either they will overly stacked to the max and annoying or if we're lucky, they go for a lighter and normal feel.
And I wonder how much they work or not all the annoying bro-tastic gambling ads.
Like other opening games for most years, I kind of hope this one falls flat and then we can look forward to the real opening day on Sunday.
I never liked this opening night concept on a Thursday night for the NFL.
