Football is back! Today’s lack of productivity is brought to you in part by two NFL Monday Night Football games which ended at 11:49pm MST last night.  That in and of itself isn’t that big of a deal.  The thing that tipped the scale for me is that the Broncos was that 2nd game and the Broncos didn’t win…at home…against the Raiders…hence lack of productivity today.
