Open Thread: Are You Ready for Some Football?

Even though tonight's NFL opener features a couple of teams I loathe despise hate with a passion don't care much about, I'll be watching.  But as far as I'm concerned it's not really the season opener until the Cowboys -- the team of teams, America's Team itself -- has played.  That happens Sunday in Maryland, I mean, Washington.

Consider this your open thread for smack talk, fantasy tabulating and otherwise opening game night comment brawling.

If you're in the mood for some political hard knocks, check out Chris Christie's latest jailbreak rush on the New Jersey teachers union.  This man is a leader who isn't afraid to open up a 55-gallon drum of whoop on anybody.  I LOVE it.
