PRIME TIME PACKERS

(October 13, 2009) --- The NFL just announced that the Green Bay-Minnesota rematch set for Sunday, November 1st has been moved from a 1pm (ET) kickoff to a 4pm start because the FOX TV network realized they have an opportunity to make a lot more moolah.

The Philadelphia Phillies are in the National League Championship and if they win that series, the Phillies will host Game-4 of the World Series at 7pm on November 1st. So, to avoid a cluster-Philly, the NFL and FOX decided to flip-flop the Vikings at Packers and Giants at Eagles games that same day.

"...Favre Favre Favre Favre Favre Favre Favre Favre Brett Brett Brett Rodgers Favre Favre..."

Although the talking-heads at FOX say they do have a great sports programming line-up scheduled for that Sunday, they admit they’re more excited that they’ll now have three additional hours to incessantly utter Brett Favre’s name.
