Oh man oh man oh man. We're officially in the week leading up to the 2012 NFL season actually getting underway. I'm more excited than many of you because I haven't had much of a football fix at all yet, given that I missed games two, three and four of the preseason. Which sucked a whole lot, but I was moving into a new place and stuff. We've got the Green Bay Packers in Week 1 and .. I'm terrified. But most of you are too, so that's fine. Let's get the quick links out of the way today. Should be seeing less of that as we get into the season though.
