As the Herald's Steve Buckley rightly implies, tonight's Patriots "kick-off" pre-season "game" should be watched with as much seriousness as Bobby Keilty's at-bats at Pawtucket.
In other words, instead of watching the telecast, do something really important—like cleaning out your sock drawer.
God knows there will be multiple occasions for us all to cheer on the consensus Super Bowl Champions (no pressure, right?), so kick back this evening, throw a shrimp on the barbie, catch the Sox as they eviscerate the O's and leave football for the real football season. OK, now, is Assante on board yet? Where's Randy? Is that a new whistle around Coach B's neck?
