I am looking forward to having a new channel this year.  One of the Verizon FIOS HDTV benefits is the ability to receive NFL Network in HD.  Of course the pre season for US NFL Football officially kicks off this weekend and having another broadcast channel will be great.  For all of you Directv snobs, take that.  :) 

And for you Europeans, I know it isn't your brand of football with the pads and all, but you know what whimps we are.  Maybe the Superbowl should pit the European Football champ against the US NFL Football champ.  Then we'll see who's the champ...
