Jacksonville Has Football Fever


Oh god oh god oh god tomorrow I am going to a REAL FOOTBALL GAME. It has been too long. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. I can’t wait to make that trek to The Jack with my friends. I can’t wait to see my fellow fans in section 217. Look at me. I am stupidly excited.

However, it is not entirely my fault. The Jaguars are making it easy to be excited. Here are the activities for the game, sent via e-mail by the Jaguars:

"GAMEDAY ENTERTAINMENTNational AnthemPerforming the National Anthem for this week’s game is Heather Bureau. The Colors will be presented by the United States Air Force from Moody AFB, Georgia.

Unfortunately, it does not look like Derrick Harvey will be joining us for the game tomorrow. It is silly how often I check the internet to see if he has signed yet. I am just exhausted by the whole thing and I am not even part of the Jaguars’ administration. I can’t imagine how Del Rio and Harvey feel. Hold outs stink.
