football season is nigh — the vikings have already won one meaningless preseason game, and their second meaningless preseason game against the new york jets will actually be on cbs on friday night.

looking at the regular season schedule, it seems there’s only two other games that will obviously be nationally broadcast — a monday night game against the packers, and a sunday night game on christmas against the ravens.

the new ownership might be good for the vikings, although they don’t win any points for expecting two-thirds of the new stadium costs to be picked up by taxpayers. but at least they’re saying the right things about moving the team being off the table.

as nice as it might be to have a football team in los angeles again, i don’t think i could have ever come to terms with it being yet another team stolen from minnesota.
