We made it. The first NFL Sunday is here.

Get ready for the games with stories from the offseason inside.

Good morning, everyone. It’s a glorious day.

However and wherever you’re consuming football, enjoy. This season just feels different after most all of the country had to watch the NFL from a bunker in 2020.

First off, a huge Thank You to our local subscribers who made the kickoff bash at Hamburg Brewing. Such a fun time getting to meet many of you from Colden, NY to Orlando, Fla. to the U.S. Navy. We’ll schedule our first virtual “Happy Hour” of the 2021 season soon, too, so everyone will be able to connect.

In the meantime — with so many new members signed up — I figured we’d share a handful of features here to get you set for the season. You always scroll through the full archive right here, too.

As always, never hesitate to reach me at golongtd@gmail.com. Thanks, all.
