I work a few blocks from Columbus Circle, where this afternoon’sÂ NFL Kickoff Concert is being held.
Security is tight.Â Actually. let me rephrase that. SECURITY IS TIGHT. I saw more cops on my way into the office today than I’ve ever seen before.
They have a major chunk of broadway shut down, and well as aÂ substantial stretch of Central Park South.Â If you’re not familiar with New York City, that’s smack dab in the center of Midtown Manhattan.
I understand what the NFL is trying to do; turning opening night into a massive event. But what about all those Giants fans who work in Midtown and will be trying to rush home tonight in time for a 7pm kickoff. Instead of making it in time, they’ll be stuck in a snarl of midtown traffic, struggling to get to the George Washington Bridge.Â Thank god Bob Papa is a great radio play by play guy, becauseÂ that’s the only way thousands of Big Blue supporters will have any idea what’s going on during the first half.
