Luke Links: The "LovinBlue is on vacation and I'm stuck doing this" edition


While LovinBlue is on her summer jaunt through Alaska (so... very... jealous) I'm stuck here, filling in for her with the weekly Luke Links.

We're roughly 5-6 weeks away from training camp in Anderson, IN. OTAs are done, and players and coaches are encouraged, at this time, to get away from football for some needed R&R before the long grind of the NFL regular season begins.

However, for us there really is no off-season. I'm enjoying watching things like World Cup futbol, but for the obsessive-minded football fan that I am, all I want to read and talk about is NFL, NFL, and more NFL.

Hell, I'm so desperate for football, I checked the CFL's website and noticed that their pre-season is wrapping up soon. Regular season games start July 1st, when the Montreal Alouettes begin their quest to defend their Grey Cup against the Saskatchewan Rough Riders, the team they beat in the championship in Calgary last year. Interesting connections between these two teams and the Colts: Bill Polian used to work for the Alouettes while former Colts running back Kenton Keith was a premiere tailback for the Rough Riders a few years back.

Personally, I'm an Alouettes fan. Montreal is a cool town.
