As expected, the NFL’s habit of letting the Super Bowl champion kick off the next season by hosting a Thursday night game will continue in 2010.

The Saints will start the new season on the evening of September 9 by hosting a game at the Superdome.

The news comes at the very bottom of the 2010 NFL Calendar posted at NFLLabor.com, the league’s new CBA propaganda web site. (I apologize to the league if “propaganda” is a bit strong. But I couldn’t think of another term that meant “propaganda”.)

As we pointed out last week, the eight potential opponents are the Falcons, Panthers, Buccaneers, Seahawks, Rams, Browns, Steelers, and Vikings.

I’ve already told Paul Allen of KFAN that I firmly believe it will be the Vikings, and that one of my goals for the offseason will be to infiltrate Allen’s broadcast booth in the Superdome for that game, as an incessantly-talking Theismann-style third wheel to the team that consists of P.A. and Pete Bercich.
