It's a Christmas Miracle for Season Ticket Holders -- Thanks to Peyton Manning's Neck

They're already out of the house and are either tailgating or stuck in traffic, but I just want to extend my very best wishes to the crowd at Gillette Stadium today. For the first time this season, they will watch pro football in the proper time frame -- after a 1 p.m. kickoff.

Enjoy watching a game both start and finish (barely) before nightfall. Enjoy the relative comfort of December sunlight/ Enjoy getting home before midnight. Enjoy not spending tomorrow in a zombie state during your department's biggest meetings of the year. Enjoy all the benefits of a return to yesteryear, when the NFL had the quaint notion that the paying customer came first, not those layabouts like me by our flatscreens. Sure it's just an accident, namely Manning's accident, you're getting this break, but dare to daydream!

I'd also tell you to enjoy the game, but I don't want to drift into pure fantasy.
