It’s August, which means we’re almost there. It’s almost fall. And around these parts, fall equals football.
Sure, it’s preseason. But preseason always means we’re that much closer to the real thing. The games hold little meaning, other than our first real peeks into the talent of the new members of the team. As these glimpses make or break the futures of players as well as teams, it does hold import.
Still, Kelly himself doesn’t put much weight on August’s games. Continue reading ‘Today, there will be Eagles football.’
Happy Memorial Day! I hope you’re all enjoying your holiday weekend.
