It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here!

OH GOD, I NEED MORE!!!111!

And maybe a little something for my American friends?

 

  


Looking ahead to tomorrow, here are the NFL broadcast maps courtesy the fine folks at 506sports.com:

CBS SINGLE


 Anchorage AK  |   Fairbanks AK
 Honolulu HI

Jacksonville @ Pittsburgh Kevin Harlan, Rich Gannon
LA Chargers @ NY Giants* Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts
Tennessee @ Miami Andrew Catalon, James Lofton
Buffalo @ Cincinnati Tom McCarthy, Steve Beuerlein, Steve Tasker
Baltimore @ Oakland (LATE) Greg Gumbel, Trent Green
Seattle @ LA Rams (LATE) Spero Dedes, Adam Archuleta

*NOTE: LA Chargers-NY Giants will air in Los Angeles on KCAL 9.

That Chargers-Giants game looks like it’s going to be BRUUUUUUUUTAL. The over/under on Dan Fouts “back in my day” stories is 6, slightly less than the number of Eli-Philip draft-day 2004 stories. IT MIGHT BE THEIR LAST TIME!

 

FOX EARLY


 Anchorage AK  |   Fairbanks AK
 Honolulu HI

Carolina @ Detroit Kenny Albert, Charles Davis
Arizona @ Philadelphia Chris Myers, Daryl Johnston
NY Jets @ Cleveland Sam Rosen, Ronde Barber
San Francisco @ Indianapolis Thom Brennaman, Chris Spielman
NO GAME due to local team at home on CBS

Okay, work with me here. The Jets-Browns game is a must-watch due to the car crash nature of both teams. But why is this shit on FOX? They’re both AFC teams. I know there are arcane rules about who gets what game when it’s split between conferences, but this seems like CBS begged the League to make FOX host a shit show for once. How else can you explain why Seahawks-RAMMIT! is on CBS?

 

FOX LATE


 Anchorage AK  |   Fairbanks AK
 Honolulu HI

Green Bay @ Dallas Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
NO GAME due to local team at home on CBS

All I can say is that God, or Roger Goodell, or possibly both, hate the Bay area. Sure, Oakland-Baltimore is a good-looking game, but why can’t they have both? The Raiders are already leaving; why force locals to watch the misery slip away?

So some 42 YO divorcee in Houston spent a fortune on plastic surgery to look like Melania Trump. Only in fucking Texas.

TBS’s streaming site is so shitty that I am contemplating streaming it in an even more illegal way than I already am.

I can’t tell if LA is getting #RAMMIT or #TARPIT. If it’s the latter there’s not a win between the two competitors, that’s lovely.

I think both.

It’s weird; how does CBS have the rights to a game with 2 NFC teams (Seahawks vs Rams)?

Fox/CBS can give up games to eachother if they have too many at once and think it would dilute their ratings for ad sales.

Fox underestimated the intensity of RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!!! fever.

Nationals keep hitting right to the shortstop. Are they hoping he’ll get tired?

Who knew you needed an assistant hitting coach to know not to hit to the Short Stop
