Great Scheduling

I've always said, the NFL is the best sports league in the world. It's financially stable. For the most part, they do things right. This has been a season full of exciting games and record-breaking accomplishments. Almost every game is worth watching.

And when they're not, the NFL makes sure there are contingencies.

Last Monday night, the NFL made sure a dull game with little playoff implication between San Diego and Jacksonville was on the same night at A Charlie Brown Christmas. So I could watch Charlie Brown without worrying about missing anything.

Tonight is an even worse Monday night clunker -- St. Louis at Seattle. The Rams are mathematically eliminated, the Seahwaks could sneak in as a wild-card team if about six other NFC teams lose all their remaining games.

But lo, ABC comes to the rescue again, with my fifth-favorite Christmas special,  I Want a Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown, is on.

It's a Christmas miracle. Thanks, NFL.
