When you stop to realize what's actually happening, it never ceases to amaze. 

Last night, the NFL managed to pause time and captivate America...over a schedule. 


And I know we're in a pandemic, and I know nothing else is going on, but they do this every year. And we fall for it, with smiles on our faces. Hook. Line. Sinker. The NFL's ability to completely comandeer the twelve month calendar is perhaps the most impressive accomplishment of any sports league of all-time. There was a day where baseball's ratings equaled those of the NFL. Those days have long since passed. 

When you consider how the NFL has laid out its schedule, with an attempt to monopolize and dominate the calendar year and the sports calendar with as many events as possible, the fact they've been able to successfully carry out the vision is beyond impressive.

January - Playoffs

February - Super Bowl and NFL Combine

March - Free Agency

April - Draft

May - Schedule Release

July - Training Camp

August - Preseason

September - December - Season


The NFL concedes actually one month all year, and do you want to bet against their ability to figure out something compelling to drop in there? Me either.
