Phew, that was a close one!  I was beside myself with angst at the thought of possibly missing kick-off. 
President Obama will be delivering his speech on jobs on September 8th which happens to be the same day as kick-off for the NFL regular season.  Now, unless you are from another country or something then you know there's nothing more important in the good ol' USA then NFL football.  I mean seriously, who gives a damn about a President addressing the fact that millions of Americans are out of work if it interrupts football?  So the President wants to discuss his plan to get Americans back working.  As long as I don't miss any downs, then I guess it's okay...SMH.

Obama's speech will begin at 7 p.m. Eastern, and the Saints-Packers game that night doesn't begin until 8:30. So there shouldn't be any trouble getting the speech done in plenty of time.

Carney noted that Obama didn't want to miss the game, either, saying, "It means he will have the opportunity to watch the game, like millions of other Americans."

God knows I love my country and Lord knows I love me some football, but I swear this country has the most jacked up priorities.
