Are you ready for some football??!!

It's that time of year. It is the beginning of August and it is time for school, fall, and FOOTBALL!! The first preseason game was today on NBC between the Colts and the Redskins. We also got HBO for free for three months and they are starting a new season of Hard Knocks: Training Camp featuring the Dallas Cowboys. I want to watch it because they drafted Orlando Scandrick from Boise State and it would be interesting to see how he is doing, especially with Pacman Jones. The only thing I am not happy about this training camp is all of the Brett Favre HOOPLA! That is all that it is. Brett Favre is the most overhyped and overrated quarterback ever. Yes he won one Super Bowl and went to another. But guess what, Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw never lost one. Tom Brady only lost one because of a great effort by the Giants. Honestly, Brett Favre is like 20th or 30th on my list of the best quarterbacks of all time. He is not worth this attention. But other than that, this years football season is going to be a great one. Boise State got new stadium suites, which actually will help the student housing by blocking out the sun, which can get very hot when games start. College football is going to be great. I am rooting for USC and Georgia to make the BCS championship. If they do, I don't care who wins it. USC's quarterback, Matt Sanchez, is Mexican. In fact, ESPN the Magazine had an up close picture during a game last year and his mouthpiece was the Mexican flag. He is also from Zacatecas, which is where my family is from. The only problem he that he has gotten in trouble with drinking, but I am still rooting for the kid. Also his dad looks just like Pete Carroll. Here is a video of the photoshoot for the magazine.

Here is the link to the ariticle: Mark Sanchez story

Also, the Olympics start in 4 days. That will be exciting to see. I am more excited to see the Men's basketball team, track and field, and swimming. I really want to see the United States get that gold medal for the first time since 2000. The track and field is always good and I want to see Michael Phelps win all the gold medals. But fortunately, there is some sports to watch before football. I just can't wait.
