Yesterday was the first Sunday of football action in the NFL and of course yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Before every game yesterday there were ceremonies honoring the lives lost and the brave men and women who were just doing their job.

The ceremony that really got to me was the one on Sunday Night Football before the game between the Jets and the Cowboys. Seeing all the New York City Policemen and Firemen get emotional brought a tear to my eye. Then it was topped off by a brilliant rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by Lady Antebellum.

As much as I love football, that's what it's really all about right there! God bless America!
