Sometimes things get away from you, wind up drifting far from where they we'd imagined they'd be on currents unforeseen and uncontrollable. Sometimes you wind up writing the blog post announcing that the Footballz Podcast is streaming live on The Classical like 20 minutes after the Footballz Podcast begins streaming live on The Classical. Sometimes you wind up getting a Monday Night Football game, at the season's halfway point, between two 2-6 teams. Sometimes you get both.
And while some of this could've been controlled more than others, at some point one must play things as they lay. When life gives you train delays and deadlines, you keep on pushing. When ESPN pays $1.9 billion for the right to beam Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers—inhabitants of opposite ends of the Quarterback Dipshittery Continuum, and partners in an extremely hilarious rivalry—you just go on ahead and watch it. On mute. While listening to Footballz. Please do not forget that part.
Tonight's broadcast finds our heroes welcoming the good people of the Fantasy Football Comedy Hour. Together, they will provide healthy, delicious, scrupulously Gruden-free commentary on the game and not-the-game, with the usual digressions and japery and music and probably TD talking about how he caught a t-shirt fired from one of those t-shirt cannons at a Knicks game last week, which is a thing that happened. You can hear this here, or at Footballz.org. For all that cannot be foreseen and cannot be changed, for all the times life gives us close-ups of Philip Rivers' face right there on prime time where anyone can see it, there is always and also this: there is the mute button, and there is Footballz.
