The dog days of summer have arrived, which means that NFL camps are open, and the Hawkeyes and the rest of college teams get going this week. Football arrives next month! The college season again kicks off on Thursday night September 1st, which happens to be our birthday here at TES, so our Iowa Football week one game notes will arrive that afternoon. Must be ready to do nothing but watch college football from Thursday night through Monday night that first weekend. Iowa v Miami (Ohio) at 3:30 pm eastern on Saturday the 3rd. For our local Hawkeyes our new home is at the Playwright Irish Pub on 35th street between 5th and 6th.
August 1st finds our Dodgers en route to Denver for a 3 game set against the Rockies. That kicks off tomorow night. The Dodgers sit 2 back of the Giants in the NL West. Going to Denver could be good for a few of the Bums who are not swinging well at the moment. Let's sweep those Rockies!
In other news, football is followed soon by hockey. Will this be the year for our Capitals?
But football is here first. We will be spending August crafting our 2016 week 1 Game Notes, it is not long now!
