Yes, you can't get rid of us that easily, loyal listeners. Just when you think you're free of us, we turn up like a bad habit every single time.
Even though I've went to the dark side and joined the nWo, Tim has been gracious enough to let us continue to taint your eardrums with new material.
And with the start of preseason football, that can only mean one thing; a new episode of Luv Ya Steel Blue that actually has discussion of a real, live NFL game. In it, Aaron, Pat the Stat and myself dive right into it by discussing the starters (1.21 gigaWATT looks strong), the rookies (did you guys know Pat likes Brooks Reed's hair?) and even the undrafted guys (Jean Cuisine!). We tackle the highs (the pass rush!), the lows (Brice McCain makes me want to kick a baby in the face) and the non-existent (Dorin Dickerson, where are you?). We might have some Rex Ryan love in there as well.
There is plenty of talk about how The Son of Bum is making his presence known already, the absurd discussion of giving up on Mario after about 12 seconds in a new position, the lunacy of needing an elite #2 wide receiver and the ridiculous amount of injuries that are piling up. And it wouldn't be a Battle Red Blog post without mentioning a little NT lust in there.
A brief preview of the upcoming match up with my B team, The New Orleans Saints, may have reared it's ugly head as well.
All this, plus we take you around the NFL. Give us a listen by downloading the mp3 file below and you will all remain on my Christmas card list. I promise.
Thanks, as always, for listening.
