Some football fans think of it like the first reddened leaves of fall, the first snowflake of winter, the first green of spring, and the first swamp-ass of summer. It is an event that tells us, “Football has begun” in all its ridiculous glory. It is the first glimpse of Manningface.
It didn’t take long for the Manningface to rear its dopey head in order to exclaim, “AW SHUCKS” for the rest of the season, as Eli Manning threw 3 interceptions into the Giants’ turnover total of 6. His last interception was Romo-like, a pick 6 by Dallas Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr in a last-ditch effort for a comeback drive.
