They need to do away with the double header on opening week. Clark just had to have his national TV audience though. Too bad 75% of the country probably won't be watching the Arrowhead showcase.

Agreed but it isn't like Clark chose this time, I would assume. I think the League or whoever could have given us another date.

Luckily, we have vacation and personal time we can use if we decide to come up.

That was the only argument I could think of, but really? Two hours? Then again, ESPN has gone on before about how west coast teams can't win on the east coast, and I've seen college games where a west coast team barely shows up when they have to fly across the country... and hell, they're freakin' 20 years old.
