    Think of it this way...when you were a kid and you heard the ice cream truck you knew something good was coming and eventually you were going to get what you wanted. So you got excited.

    Same thing.
    Just kidding with ya "D"..........but I know the season's coming when I see the other team's videos pop up on my TIVO. Actually sitting through 22 minutes of a John Facenda imitator telling me that the Stains are headed for greatness isn't necessary to impart that knowledge.
    I know everyone is kidding but I think what I'm trying to express is lost on some.

    And some of the fun in watching the sucky teams' highlights is seeing how they spin it. Hey, we were 8-8 a few seasons back.... [/quote:2m96nnzk]

    That's true,and really that was the point I was making.........it's barely tolerable to watch these guys spin a 4-12 record into a video entitled "On The Rise".

    Even though it's a "national" station doing tapes for the entire leagues' teams, aren't these same tapes used locally by the individual franchises?... I could have sworn that some of the Steeler highlight reels were used by the team or local stations at one time or another.... I could be mistaken, though...

    They're still fun to watch and they still get me pumped up for the coming season.

    NKy - That is a classic bit and I remember it well.
