I am Brian Gary and I am addicted to NFL football. I go through withdrawals from the final second of the Super Bowl in February until training camp opens in late July. The darkness is almost over. I am happy to say we only have to survive 5 more weekends without football until the preseason begins.

It brings me great joy to think there are only 5 more Sundays where I wake up with that blank look on my face. On Sunday August 7th the preseason officially will get under way when the Packers battle the Colts. The game will be boring as hell but it will be football...NFL football. Preseason football is like turkey bacon. It ain't fooling anyone and we know it isn't real, but it will hold us over until the real thing comes along. Hang on football fans, we can do this. Only 5 more weekends to go.
