Finally . . . It's Time!

  Then again, the other side of me thinks that's why I'll get there a few hours early. Check out the new place. Realize that we'll be here 10 times this season (maybe more, but let's not get ahead of ourselves) and not try to map the whole place out in one day. Because when we're on the road, and go to a stadium for the first time, I don't remember making a big deal out of it.  

  So it'll probably be something in the middle. I'm sure I'll be in awe of the new place for a while, but at the same time, there's a lot of interest about the "football" part of things.  

  How long will the starters play? How does this offense look against a talented Titans defense? Can Sam Hurd really keep this going? Did Felix Jones really just do that? Is Vince Young really going to the Hall of Fame? Stuff like that.  

  For lots of reasons, I'm excited about Friday night. Personally, I know a lot of people who have put some hard work into this. And I know, just because they kick it off for the first time, doesn't mean the hard work will end.  

  But when the Tennessee Titans come calling Friday night in Arlington, it's just not the preseason opener. It's not just an open house. It's more than just kicking off the party.  

  It's the start of history.  

  And I'm just glad I'll be in the house for it.
