10 NFL storylines to look forward to: part 2

For about a week or two, I tried to get into Major League Baseball. Those around me know what a difficult task that would be for a person of my sporting interests. I struggled through about 10 minutes of viewing “Baseball Tonight”. I even went to a Pittsburgh Pirates game at PNC Park and ended up spending most of the time watching the British Open on a TV in the air conditioned club section (it’s good to be a Panucci in Pittsburgh). It was more difficult finding a seat around those televisions than in the first deck of the field. Needless to say, embracing baseball did not work, so I am back to NFL preparation mode. Training camp will be starting very soon all around the good old U.S. of A., so allow me to list my 5 additional storylines to follow this 2009 season:

Reasons to be excited about this NFL season part 1

I have contributed twice to Emptybackfield and both times, I have written about hockey. Now like Christopher Nolan doing the commercial hit “Batman Begins” after less mass appealing (but still strong) films “Memento” and “Insomnia”, I take a break to talk about another sports passion of mine that is shared by innumerably more people than ice hockey: the National Football League. So I bring to those who are still not in NFL mode, 10 NFL Storylines to Look Forward to, Part 1:

if it’s in the game is it in the game? NCAA football ’10 review

Oh yes, she is definitely in the game

Oh yes, she is definitely in the game

It’s that time of the year again. Time to head to your local electronics store and pick up NCAA and right all the wrongs from last years football season. Unfortunately next gen college football has not been too kind to us. On Xbox and PS2 NCAA football was a wildly fun romp that played differently from madden and in many ways was more fun. Next gen systems though NCAA have struggled with poor graphics, fluctuating frame rates, and plenty of bugs.
