(By the way, congrats to the Blackhawks, of course. I am not a hockey guy, and I am not a fair-weather bandwagon jumper. So you won’t see me out there in Blackhawks gear like the thousands of posers we will see. But I am happy for them, the city, and my friends that are true Blackhawks fans).
I bet there are people reading this Blog that don’t remember life before the Internet. That blows me away. But life really did exist before the Internet. And during that time, one of my favorite things about June was the arrival of the Pro Football Preview magazines. Not sure what the Internet has to do with the change in when they were released, but I can tell you they used to be released in late June/early July. I was amazed yesterday to see that most of them were sitting on shelves.
As much as they’re becoming largely irrelevant due to the aforementioned information superhighway, I do still enjoy buying them. Maybe it makes me feel younger.
So far I have bought the USA Today and Lindy’s preview magazines. For those that care, I’ll be breaking down the Bears angle from each magazine. The USA Today rag actually has a lot of Bears information. That will be first. For those that don’t want the spoilers, I guess skip past the next few updates.
Back with more later…
