It's the first of several games this season where you'll hear the name "Payton" or "Peyton" mentioned a thousand times.
We're going to watch it anyway.
Here at BTSC Headquarters, we're in between one of the many hundred takes needed to get me to film 60-80 seconds of commentary. Makes me wonder how many times I hit the backspace key while writing. That actually creates a mental block. Probably shouldn't have done that. Six times in that paragraph.
Anyway...what are we watching? Any Saints or Cardinals fans find their way to our humble thread, please identify yourselves (the natives shoot sometimes) and let us know what you think of your teams this year.
Cuz, well, why not? While you're at it, raise a glass for Dermontti and Jack, a partial glass for Pitt's Doleman and Martin, and collectively, let out a big huzzah, because in whatever form this is tonight, it's actual football.
