This is Sportcenter!

NFL Fun fact: Each of the last seven times the Minnesota Vikings have lost their first game, they have failed to go undefeated in a season.

Source: I heard it on Sportscenter, so it has to be true.

Explanation: It's officially that time of year. I can care about Sportscenter again! Here are some other interesting facts I learned:

  • ESPN has a jovial announcer who has funny nicknames for all sorts of players.
  • The "New York Football Giants" won the Super Bowl last year, yet apparently most people think they weren't a very good team then and aren't one now.
  • The new quarterback for the New York Jets actually spent some time playing for another team before joining the Jets.
  • OK, that jovial announcer is getting annoying.
  • Apparently there is a player on New England who may have gotten hurt on Sunday. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything more about it.
  • There is a player named Adam Jones on the Cowboys who goes by the colorful nickname "Pac Man"
  • OK, there's nothing jovial about him, just get him off my screen.
  • It turns out that there are other football teams from places other than Dallas, New York, and New England.
  • That "Dancing With the Stars" guy with the terrible grammar is an analyst for ESPN.
  • Player number eighty-five has a very poor understanding of Spanish.
  • Must... kill... Chris... Berman...
