Football season is almost upon us, and you know what that means: Excess coverage of the Patriots and Giants. Yes, we Connecticut residents may live in between Boston and New York, but many of us have allegiances to teams outside the region. If you root for the Pats, Giants or Jets, that's great, but you can find coverage of those teams in all the local papers and on countless other websites. This blog is for the rest of us; the people who don't care about Hakeem Nicks' injury status or Wes Welker's conditioning routine. Throughout the next several months, we'll provide our non-serious brand of coverage for the other 29 teams in the league, along with some posts on college football.
This blog will be maintained by Tom (that's me) and Chip, along with the occassionally guest contributor. I am a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan, while Chip bleeds Philadelphia Eagles green. In other words, we're both used to rooting for losers.
We highly encourage your interaction, because after all, what better way to learn about a team like the Arizona Cardinals than by hearing directly from a Cardinals fan. You can contribute in the comments of every article, or on Twitter by using the hashtag #restoftheleague. Please tell your friends - we'd love to have representatives for as many teams as possible. If you're interested in contributing a blog post about your favorite team, email email@example.com.

We're glad to have you here, and you can look for our 2012 season previews, coming soon.
