Is there a better week for football on TV?

Postby nsulham » Fri Jan 28, 2005 2:21 pm

Than the week(s) leading up to the Super Bowl?

Non-stop NFL Films highlights on ESPN of every Super Bowl is a staple of my television viewing each year. I have to be careful because there are times that if I don't look at the time, I'll spend a whole day watching those things.

I can't even imagine what it'd be like if I had the NFL Network as well :-[

The only thing worse than the week before the Super Bowl is the weeks of preseason football. :-P

Nsulham's saying that the week before the Super Bowl is the best week.

EDIT: And yeah, preseason football is terrible.

Actually, any week when there are actual games going on is better than this week.
I've seen all this history (granted, it is great to be able to turn the TV on at any random time and find at least one NFL Films program on).
However, the mind-numbing, over-analysis of the teams becomes, for the most part, redundant and excruciatingly painful to me around day 5-6 after the Conference Championships.
By next Sunday (hell, this Sunday), all I will be looking for are individual Cheerleader profiles until about kickoff.
Yeah... We need more of that... ;-D

I did watch some cool NFL shows yesterday (Sunday), but at the same time found myself also watching:
Bobsled competition (caught myself rooting for the Canadians for some strange reason)
Motocross racing ... whoa, these guys were balls out the whole way
Boxing - the sport of kings
College hoops
Fishing - the art of fan fishing with jerk baits ... a classic
Auto Auction - does this count as sports? I watched that the longest
Womens NCAA hoops ... lovely group of tall babes

I miss the Noon-Three-Seven o'clock football schedule already.

But yeah, there were some cool NFL shows on. ;-D

Yeah, I like the triple live football myself. In my younger days I would watch all the old Super Bowls. That announcer dude's voice is just classic. When I woke up yesterday the first one that was on was SB XIX - the first one that I ever watched. SF killed Miami! :-)

Other sports watched yesterday were bowling (two guys bowled consecutive 7-10 splits...I laughed), all that X-games stuff (some skiing guy did a front flip face plant on a jump - wicked!), and bull-riding.

I checked out the bobsledding Saturday night. It's all right, but I would still like to see more curling and luge. ;-D
