College football is back (would have really enjoyed an early Tennessee loss), the NFL preseason is done and it’s time to enjoy a nice, long Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, I have to do some traveling on Labor Day. Back to Washington D.C. for NFLPA-related arbitration work. In fact, September is going to be full of traveling for me, between D.C., Las Vegas, Orlando, St. Louis, New York and Dallas. It won’t be long until I miss my bed in Fort Lauderdale.
