April 22, The Giants and Jets to Open the Season on 9/11. Will Face Off on Christmas Eve

Hey guys,

For the 2011 NFL season, the Giants and Jets will both open on September 11. There were talks early on the day that the schedule was announced that the two New York teams would face off against one another on the anniversary, but the league elected to have their match-up on Christmas Eve.

My initial reaction was disappointment when I heard that the two New Yorkers would not face off to start the season, but I’ve since decided that it’s not such a bad thing. This way both teams have a chance to seize victory on this somber anniversary.

So for all you New York football fans out there, take a look at this season’s schedule for the Giants and Jets.

The season opens with The Big Blue Wrecking Crew facing off with the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field at 4:15. Gang Green also faces off with an NFC East opponent in the Dallas Cowgirls at the Meadowlands in primetime.

This of course all hinges on the idea that there will be an NFL season in 2011, and that it will start on time.

To shift gears completely as far as sports go, the announcement of the tenth anniversary of 9/11’s football schedule brings me to today’s videos. The two videos that I picked out for today are of the Mets and Yankees once play was resumed following the attacks. Unfortunately, since the MLB has a tight grip on all of their video content, you will have to leave the site to see the Mets video. It’s pretty amazing the way that the Mets and Braves got together and united with national pride. The Yankees video is also a great watch, and you get to take a look at some behind the scenes interactions with our then president George W Bush. Bush and Jeter’s interactions before the game were awesome.
