It was due to the Democratic National Convention and the President's speech tomorrow night.

What's funny is that the game probably would've had higher ratings than his speech.....

For good reason. Not that anyone would pick a political speech over football.

I will say this is throwing off my whole routine. We had a short work week to begin with.

Then the game being the SNF crew made it feel like today was Monday, but I knew I worked yesterday so it kind of felt like MNF which made today also feel like Tuesday.

And yet it's Thursday. My clock is jacked.

I assume they didn't want to have a game during Obama's speech tonight.

Right, because all the networks carry the convention.

Not much to see here. Last week's Broncos preseason game didn't start til nearly midnight on the east coast because of Lord Mittens of Romney's speech.

I switched to Clinton's speech at the third quarter and was honestly more entertained (I watched the RNC too and was entertained in different ways). Regardless of your views, that guy knows how to give a frickin speech.

Clinton's approval rating is far higher than either Obama or Romney. They should've had it tonight instead of last night so everyone could watch Clinton live.

I want to know what the DNC was thinking scheduling their convention on opening week of football.

Can you be any more retarded? 100 million Americans have been waiting 212 days for football, and you schedule a convention that you want the country focused on during that week? WTF is wrong with them?

^^^ Whatever tick up the Republicans received for their convention, you really think the Dems would wait another full week to respond? But in reality, yeah, they just aren't football fans. Liberals = Hate Football. I know who I am voting for this November.

When else are they going to do it, given that they need to do it after the Republican convention? Especially now that there are Sunday, Monday and Thursday night games starting next week?

Apparently Obama's speech will be pretty policy oriented as well. I'm looking forward to it.

Though of course, nothing will get done because our government can't get on the same page about anything because they are all just a bunch of a-holes that are more concerned with "being right" than actually helping the country.
