The Week After aka The Worst Sunday Ever

Well this is it, the worst Sunday of the year is here. With the ending of Super Bowl XLIV the 2009 NFL season is over. So now what? Normally we would all be awake early this Sunday morning pumped up for some football. If your team is playing a home game you may be up as early as 5AM packing up food and drink and getting ready to head out to your favorite tailgate party spot. If your team is on the road no worries it is time to get up and watch NFL Network, followed by some ESPN GameDay, and possibly some Fox Pregame with good ole boy Terry Bradshaw before your squad takes the field. Your biggest concern is are the wings defrausted and is the beer cold?

Well that was then and this is now, the first Sunday after the season, also known as the worst sunday of the year. To compound matters the cruel trick of this being Valentine's Day is really like a kick to the groin. As fate would have it we can't even sleep in, we have new honey do lists, and a romantic day to plan. I ask the football Gods how can this be?

I have to blame someone on a day like this, so I have selected Roger Goodell for my wrath. Roger I don't care about the NFL Pro Bowl but how could you move it in front of the Super Bowl? We have all lost our buffer which was the Pro Bowl after the Super Bowl, another week to see our stars and imagine how great next season will be. Way to go Roger!

We now all face six LONG months without NFL football. Well never fear, as all true NFL fans know the NFL season is never over. The NFL Scouting Combine will be starting next Wednesday February 24th in Indianapolis. Over three hundred of the very best college football players will be on NFL Network all day long everyday for a week. This will quickly be followed by the start of free agency. The free agent period will lead to the 2010 NFL Draft in late April. From there we will wait for our teams to sign the newly signed stars and have some OTAs. This is a great time to start getting your 2010 fantasy football draft plans in place. From there we will head into training camp in late July followed closely by preseason football in early August. Can't you almost smell the brautwurst cooking already, I can!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
