Are You Ready For Some Football?! [Y-not]

This weekend the NFL Hall of Fame inducted several new members, including Jerome Bettis. Junior Seau was also inducted, but that was marred somewhat by the controversy surrounding his death.

This weekend also saw the passing of HoF member Frank Gifford. For a lot of us of a certain age, Gifford was one of the memorable NFL voices. It's sad to think that generation of broadcasters is passing away.

The Hall of Fame game is on tonight. NBC has the coverage. The Steelers are facing the Vikings. (Game is just winding down the first quarter, still scoreless.)

Did you know that the Pittsburgh Steelerettes were the first cheerleading squad in the NFL?

Sadly, the Steelers no longer have cheerleaders.

Fortunately, the Vikings DO:

Are you ready for the NFL season to start? Who do you like this year? I'm curious to see if Marcus Mariota has an impact on the Titans this season.
