You know why I’m hype? Last night we got to watch real, actual football. That may be a stretch. It may have just been the Hall of Fame Game, but I’ll take it. We’re one day closer to football season officially kicking off.
You know what preseason football also means? The release of Madden 19 is right around the corner! At this time next week, Madden 19 will be in your hands and you just might have a legitimate excuse to play hooky on Friday.
It’s time for Week 2 of SBNation Scores, where we have big deals and discounts to get your weekend started.
