>Football season begins one week from tomorrow. Real, honest-to-goodness football games that count and are meaningful.
Yes, there have been the pre-season NFL games, but it’s hard to work up the same passion and excitement for them.
One week from tomorrow, the Vols take the field in Cal to battle the Golden Bears. I think one of the things that is the most exciting about this time of year is that every team is undefeated and every team has a shot a winning it all. Hope, expectation, dreams, surprises. No one is eliminated yet and everyone has a shot. Oh sure, there are some who are more likely to win than others, but anything can happen. And that’s why I love the week leading up to the kick-off of football.
