Premier League Football is back today! I’m not a real fan though. I only put it on on Saturdays because it isn’t Food Network or Disney Jr. But lots of folks are fans so good luck to your team this season. Hope they don’t get relegated.

Gonna open with a video today because it’s great. Lots of fun was had at last month’s Islanders Fantasy Camp, and he’s a package of amateurs and legends rubbing elbows and having a good time. Seems like the inaugural camp was a hit. I hope there are many more in the future.
