Last year, our friends at NBC invited me to sit at the big-boy table with Peter King and Jimmy Roberts for a half-dozen halftimes during the network’s broadcasts of Notre Dame home games.
This year, the 30 Rock invasion begins this weekend, and lasts through all eight of the Irish games televised by NBC.
But there’s more. Starting on September 12, when the Redskins host the Cowboys, I’ll be on the post-game show with Bob Costas, primarily to talk about some of the topics that we’ll be delving into via a Monday 10-pack of takes from the Sunday that was.
Meanwhile, Rodney Harrison and I will be taping a web-only feature during the Sunday Night Football game, and I’ll be participating again in the SNF Extra live chat, which will make extensive use of Twitter this year.
I’ll also be doing plenty of posting from the road, thanks to an Amtrak-and-mini-Madden-Cruiser travel plan aimed at maximizing my work time. The first trip starts on Friday — just in time for Hurricane Earl to kiss the East Coast.
