I’m put in mind of the great Rolling Stones song “Out of Time” — You don’t know what’s going on/You’ve been away for far too long …

Just days after I wrote about my disregard for the NFL preseason, NBC’s telecast of the Hall of Fame Game between the Bills and Titans crushed ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball featuring the sport’s premier matchup of the Yankees and Red Sox. Though the baseball game scored well for ESPN with a 3.0 rating and 4.7 million viewers, the Bills-Titans drew a 4.9 rating and 7.9 million.
With the public’s affection for even an exhibition taste of the NFL, you’d think the least Terrell Owens could have done was play more than one series.
