    To avoid a conflict with President Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention, the NFL opener featuring the Giants will be played on Wednesday, Sept. 5 instead of Thursday, Sept. 6.

    Same conflict happened four years ago with McCain's speech. The NFL pushed back kickoff 90 minutes to avoid the conflict and got poor ratings.

    Aren't they worried about a conflict with Miami (OH) vs. Western Michigan?

    If this doesn't prove Obama is a Muslim, nothing will.

    They should have offered Obama 15 minutes to make the speech at halftime of the football game.

    Given his status as the all-time champion of White House jock-sniffers, he'd probably jump at the chance.

    Richard Nixon would like to have a word with you, but he's too busy trying to call in plays to the Redskins from the Great Beyond.

    The guy who started the obsessive Oval Office jock-sniffing. There were isolated instances before that (Taft at a baseball game in 1912), but Nixon made it routine and eventually obligatory.

    You'd think at some point in the interim, some Dem would have squatted to take a hot dumping shit all over the tradition, saying, "I'm here to fuckin' work, not shake pom-poms," and specifically take a nice potshot at Nixon in the process.

    Yet Obama seems to be doubling up on it.
