That means FOOTBALL season is right around the corner.

Some of us are well ready for football and welcome the HOF as the signal that Football is Almost here. (Some will wait until the regular season, but so be it )

WHICH MEANS that soon we will be posting predictions, talking about the issues of the game, and before we know it, opening night will be here.

The HOF game is being played early, on Thursday, to kick off the ceremonies i as opposed to ending them. This is because in the 164 years they have been playing the HOF game, once, last year, it had to be cancelled due to unsafe conditions. (It was also cancelled in 1886, the same year that Queen Elizabeth II was born) So rather than end the weekend ceremonies with the game, we will start them after 3 days of practice, and hope the injuries are not TOO bad.

SO In order to jump start everyone's excitement for football season, here are a few of the KingCats bold pre-prediction predictions:

....Somewhere along the way, someone will be angered by my hatred of the Cowboys and also by my jokery of the Chargers. You remember the Chargers, the ones who used to be in San Diego, but for some reason, moved to Los Angeles, a city that had NO teams a few years ago.....? The ones that were going to use a soccer field that seats 29,000 this year, but instead due to riots and gang wars, have moved over to using Los Angeles Regional High School field which seats about 12,000...of which they will not fill.

.... I think it would be hilarious for the Raiders to win the SUuper Bowl. Then leave town. Would be the bigest "up Yours" wince I called my boss and quit Friday.

...... Speaking of the Las Vegas Raiders, there is a dispensery of recreational Marijuana near the proposed stadium. Will make the fans more mellow perhaps ?

....... Once the season gets going, read Colt and Bill's predictions if you want serious football commentary. Read mine if you want a feline attempt at humor.

........ My kid will get mad about my using the term "Pesky Red Birds" to refer to a team he likes.

.......Billicheck is already looking for new ways to cheat.

......... The league will adopt a new drug policy, but it will apply only to teams based in Colorado, DC , Mass, Oregon, Washington and Maine. This will extend to teams in California in 2018. Someone, probably the Jets, will move to Portland as a result.

.........Global Warming will force the seaon back eventually. Dome stadiums that are complete with snow will start to appear in places like Chicago and Green Bay that used to have cold weather. This will give an "Old school: feeling of football to the fans.

......Goodell will announce that each team MUST play one regular season game in another country (Wait..didn't he do that in April already?) In addition to London and Mexico City, Venues will include Paris, Tokyo, Seoul and Calcutta.

....In order to be more fair, Goodell also will announce plans to extend the playoffs to the top 10 teams in each conference with a Bye Week for the top 2 . he will alos reinstate the college ALL star Game, but they will go against the worst team in the NFL.....(probably the Chargers)

.....The Jacksonville Jaguars will allow clothing optional areas of the stadium due to the opressive heat. Likely, no one will notice.

.....I am setting up a Fantasy Football league for us here on Cuty Data. That is for real. I really am.

.....Finally, the Hall of Fame Game will see mostly practice squad applicants on the field for 3 quarters. To prevent injury, starters will remain home with most of the coaching staff, and Goodell will be there saying "We need 6 or 8 preseason games because of this"

Great to have you back, Cat Man! Thanks for the reminder regarding the HoF Game. I guess that means some weird, alien form of "football" will actually be played.

Kurt Warner got in, but...

Jerry Jones? That must be a major typo. Somebody's head's gonna roll...

My bold prediction; the Bills will make their first playoff appearance in the new millennium. The Pats will buy 53 tickets at Foxboro for the Bills players to sit in for the divisional round.

I will make sure I stay away from all predictions the next 5 weeks and just focus on september 10th. I don't even want to watch any preseason games and rather just wait for the real thing.

That's all I tend to wait for while avoiding all the hype from ESPN about what team is going all the way.
