*Tilt* guess Morrissey's "Every Day Is Like Sunday" could be used to refer to football...though I'm pretty sure that's not what Morrissey meant when he wrote the song...

(Erm, an NFL commercial on tonight's opener used that song. I was...surprised.)

Meanwhile, not a bad start. Both teams did some gutsy moves, both teams did some "Huh?" moves, the Washington Redskins at least kept from losing in a blowout, and NBC kept its "heeeeey look at usssssssss" histrionics to a minimum because tonight was about starting the NFL season, not so much about selling NBC's current version of NFL coverage, which I think is still more about very loud sizzle than steak. (I find myself humming the much gentler Randy Edelman "NFL on NBC" theme he wrote in the mid-90s, not long after he scored Gettysburg. Somehow the John Williams fanfare manages to be annoyingly catchy, as in "I don't want it to be catchy!" catchy. Makes me wish the new "NFL on NBC" theme could've been something more offbeat by Jerry Goldsmith. Which is slightly impossible as Goldsmith died before NBC got the NFL back. (Sometimes even I wonder why I think things like that.))
