Patriots schedule will be unveiled Tuesday

(Watch carefully as we completely ignore the fact the NFL lockout may ultimately, in a far-less-than-perfect world, wipe out a portion of the 2011 schedule.) And this is why the NFL is king. They can tell you in April how you'll be spending your Sundays in September, October, November, December and the start of January and we all get excited about it. Tuesday night, the league will release the 2011 slate with the NFL Total Access: 2011 Schedule Release Show. Yay. We already know the Patriots' opponents. Home and away games with the Bills, Dolphins and Jets. Road games at Denver, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Philly and Washington. Home games with the Chiefs, Chargers, Colts, Cowboys and Giants. We'll see if the Pats-Colts game gets the Week 9, first week of November treatment as it normally does. And when we get to see all those awesome costumes in the Hole Noir out in Oakland. And whether I'll be able to unleash 310-yard drives on a Sunday afternoon on a Denver golf course if there's a Monday night game out there. That's what fun is all about. Tom E.
