I fully realize that football is not for everyone. In fact, I know plenty of people who could care less about it, and others with an absolute disdain for the sport.
Like it or not (I love it), but with the start of the NFL last weekend, and the beginning of Monday Night Football tonight, pigskin season is officially in full swing, and as a result, lots of folks are doing football-related specials this week.
You can’t really argue with specials, can you? Here’s what’s new from Local540 this week.
