This is it.
The NFL season is upon us, with all its attendant joy, frustration, panic, and misery. And this is the final edition of Request Line until next year. Sure, if something truly special happens like Roger Goodell getting fired (out of a cannon, into the sun) we might slip in a special edition (like last year’s Halloween bash), but don’t hold your breath. Instead, use that breath to breathe a huge sigh of relief that football is right on the front doorstep, waiting for you to invite it back into your hearth and heart.
That’s a joke, by the way. Football doesn’t wait patiently, and it sure as hell doesn’t come in peacefully through the front door. No, football SMASHES RIGHT THROUGH THE WALL BACK INTO YOUR LIFE! IT’S TIME TO GET HYPE FOLKS, CAUSE FOOTBALL MOTHERFUCKING FOOTBALL GODDAMN RIGHT FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL IS BACK!
So let’s treat it with proper respect and herald its arrival with this week’s Request Line theme: Songs That Make You Want To Run Through A Goddamn Brick Wall.
You are invited to pick a total of THREE songs. Anything you want that gets you properly fired up. Thanks to the holiday, plus the start of the season and all that jazz, I’m going to hold off until Thursday to post the radio compilation. So take your time and choose carefully. THIS REQUEST LINE I CALL IT THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS OFFENSE CAUSE THERE’S REALLY NO RUSH TO SPEAK OF.
I’ll get us started with the song that’s been in my head all offseason as I get excited about Amari Cooper and Derek Carr’s second season working together. I’m expecting big things from the both of them.
