It's only been a few days but we've got one more preseason game to go tonight. It's the fourth preseason game day, which hopefully means most of us are officially in game shape. A quick hand to the remote, a solid bit of food and drink to enjoy during the game, and your seat ready and waiting either at the stadium, in a bar, or at home.
Since this is the fourth preseason game, I'd imagine many folks will look to avoid injury and not watch the entire game. Don't worry, I act as first, second and third string, so I'll be around keeping an eye on tonight's action. The game is at 7:00pm pacific so check back for our game thread around 6:00pm. If we're fortunate, maybe we'll get a drunken wjackalope appearance. On to the links.
