New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers NFL Kickoff Live Thread

That's right.  It's time for football!  Real, meaningful football! 

The 2009 NFL Champion New Orleans Saints travel to Wisconsin tonight to play the 2010 NF Champion Green Bay Packers.  Drew Brees vs. Aaron Rodgers.  Even amid a 136 day lockout, the NFL schedule makers got this one right.  

The Super Bowl champion has won the season opener every year since 1999.  That year, our beloved Miami Dolphins defeated the defending champion Denver Broncos 38-21.  That game marked the first Broncos game since John Elway retired following the Super Bowl.

Enjoy tonight and realize, it's just four days until Monday Night Football turns on the cameras in Sun Life Stadium and the Dolphins host the New England Patriots.
