Indianapolis, Indiana - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Friday at his Super Bowl news conference that the number of Thursday night games played will increase to 13. This came as welcome news to fans who love seeing the shitty matchups that the NFL Network brings us on Thursday nights. These pathetic games are usually only played for the last half of the season, but 2012 will see them beginning in week 2. The move, Goodell said, will allow every team to appear on prime time TV during the upcoming season. Because every team deserves to be on television, right? Especially teams like the 3-13 Vikings, the 2-14 Rams, and the 4-12 Bucs. “We think it’s great for the fans, for the teams, and great for the network” said Goodell with a look on his face that seemed to say “Holy shit, they’re actually buying it! I could tell just about any lie right now, couldn’t I?” He then continued to speak about some other topics but we were distracted by thinking about the horrible fucking Thursday night games from this past season, such as the Bucs/Cowboys, and the Seahawks/Eagles. Or how about that classic Jaguars/Falcons game? The press conference was then cut short because Goodell had an appointment to go kiss a corporate sponsor’s ass so he could get them to pay 50 million dollars to be the official bullshit of the NFL. Afterwards, you could feel the excitement in the air as everyone seemingly had to pinch themselves to make sure they weren’t dreaming, as we all will get the privilege of seeing a week 2 Thursday game between the Vikings and Redskins or maybe a week 4 game featuring the Dolphins and Chiefs. Thank you, NFL!
