    Thank you @AFLfan, I will make you proud Todd. Ok gentleman, the official kickoff of the 2022 NFL season is September 8th, 2022, so we have 204 days and 11 hours to go. If you want to see the exact time including minutes and seconds, you can follow this link to the official countdown clock. Once you get to the website, you'll need to give it a few seconds until the clock appears at the top of the page.

    Not doing so good over here man, I can't take the wait much longer, football season. If I don't make it, make me proud grasshopper.

    Feeling dehydrated, the sun is beaming down today, this waiting is brutal.

    Well with a potential MLB lockout looming into the season this might be the hottest thread here for awhile!

    This isn't funny, no football to watch is really having a bad effect on me physically, on my appearance. You want to see what I look like right now, here, just look at me!

    My wife has no problem with my football watching, but she doesn't participate. It's a happy medium that I can accept.

    Football season demands that I completely ignore my wife the entire season, football requires my complete attention. Men in tights are all that matter from September to February!

    While you are waiting you can tune in Sunday for the Nascar race at Daytona motor speedway in Florida. It will be spectacular.

    We have 204 days and 12 hours to go until September 8th arrives. This is like waiting for lunch to thaw in the arctic!

    @doubledragon I was thinking about an idea for this time and this thread. Not all of us have the same amount of knowledge about football "Xs and Os". Or league history. Or, etc. I would like to see possibly some things here to educate us on football. Just an idea. For example. Different formations, defenses, rules, rule changes. I'm not saying you have to do this, or should do it alone, just spit ballin....

    Here's a little taste to wet your whistle, just a teaser mind you. The empty set is a formation where the offense lines up with five receivers and nobody in the backfield other than the quarterback, hence the name empty set.

    202 days and 12 hours. The wait is making me thirsty, it reminds me of last football season, ah the memories....

    Aaron Rodgers is single again, will he take a shower? Will he wash his hair? Will he wear other shirts than Star Wars T’s?

    These are legit questions

    @doubledragon we need you to investigate!

    Yes indeed, he needs to find a woman that shares his same qualities with groom, it's much easier to get along if they're both alike.

    Congratulations!! Full disclosure, I post gifs and videos here, but I often have to practice first. For some reason, I forget. 🤣🙃 Pro tip, you can send text messages to yourself. Practice by attaching things to a self text.

    I thought about starting the Pats thread to post this, but figured it's too early. Anyway.... The one concern I had about Mac Jones was the fact that he appeared to be out of shape in college even during the last week of the season. Meaning he had a beer/pizza belly in that semi infamous cigar shirtless photo. It's not easy to be that pudgy, last week of the season, after a game.

    He admitted this off season that he eats too much ice cream but that fitness was a priority. I'm a bit concerned after seeing this video. If you watch the whole thing, towards the end there are some shots when he is against the wind and his shirt hugs his body. Let's just say that he's not on the TB12 plan.

    I just ate a pint of Ben and Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie ice cream, it's my favorite, it's the big chunks of brownies that make it so good. I bought two pints this morning, one for today and one for tomorrow!
