Thursday Night Football Open Thread: Panthers v. Buccaneers

MRSA?! I don't want to hear about MRSA! Get back out there and play or I'll leak your medical records too! - Kevin C. Cox

Join us, won't you, for tonight's Thursday night matchup between NFC South powerhouses. It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick...probably.

Welcome to yet another edition of Thursday Night Football where the Carolina Panthers take on the Tampa Bay Walking Plagues Buccaneers.

I can only assume that you are watching this game for one of the following reasons:

A) You have at least one player on your fantasy team(s) involved in this contest.

B) You have absolutely nothing better to do than to watch mediocre football.

C) You REALLY want to get the mental taste of that Giants/Vikings game from Monday night out of your brain once and for all.

Well, friends, you're in luck. Because this game will satisfy all your football needs...at least until Sunday.

Enjoy the game. It can't possibly be worse than Monday night was. Right?
