Why yes, NFL football is (sort of) back!
I genuinely thought the Hall of Fame Game was this Sunday, but that hasn’t been the case for years and I’m just an idiot. The annual preseason curtain raiser in Canton is to be contested between the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Typically the HOF game features two teams who have had members of their organization inducted into football’s exclusive club of legends, and this year you have the Jaguars with tackle Tony Boselli, while the Raiders have the late Cliff Branch with a posthumous (and way overdue) induction.
