In a rare moment of fashion awareness, I noticed the colorful neck adornments of our NBC Sunday Night Football hosts, Chris “Skeksis” Collinsworth and his unfortunate counterpart Al Michaels. The Taloned One was sporting a Titans-themed blue tie, while the elder Al donned one in Steelers’ black and gold.
The result: not so good for our broadcast booth whipping boy. The Steelers won in OT, 13-10.
So do these guys always wear ties in the competing teams’ colors? Is there some correlation to the game’s outcome? Only time will tell, but for now, it’s Al Michaels bringing the good luck to Thursday Night’s NFL season-opening winner, the defending champs, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Chad Hennings episode. We talk with Devin Pike from Red Carpet Crash (http://redcarpetcrash.com) about the new film Big Fan (http://bigfanmovie.com) starring Patton Oswalt. Devin is a big football fan and sits in for the whole show. It’s fantasy draft weekend so expect plenty of stories from the fantasy football draft parties. Week 1 starts soon so we make our game picks and this year we pick against the current line. It’s time to get this season rolling. Be sure to infect your friends with Pigskin Radio.

Could the Lions go 0-32? This year is their chance. The Onion pokes fun at the worst team in the NFL. Notice the Drew Henson tagline, some really good chuckles in this video.
Fantasy Football and Llama stories in the same god damn episode! Holy shit! (BTW my fantasy team in the Austin league is the Texas Llamas) I love CNN’s News of the Absurd, its what great shows should be, smartassy. This episode is dedicated to all fantasy football fanatics out there. We find out about male girdles, TO’s tasty cereal and the new craze sweeping the nation, Llama caddies.
The Charles Haley and DeMarcus Ware episode, two great ninety-fours! Time to get on the Dallas Cowboys short bus with a couple of football idiots. We interview the guys from Fantasy Sports Trader an online fantasy player stock market. Our limited minds try to understand the concept and fail miserably. The NFL attempts to reign in social media during games. I review NFL 2010 for the iPhone. Idiot John gets ready for the big draft party at his house. Cowboy rookie injuries. Yes, I think we are all ready for some football.
