It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
You see, not only is my favourite sports team – the Buffalo Bills – playing down the street here in Toronto tonight, but the pre-season game also means week one of the 2010 NFL season is just around the corner.
I love NFL football: bus trips, fantasy football pools and the buzzing of non-stop alerts pushed to my smartphone. Each Sunday through February is blocked off to watch the pre-game shows, the early and late games — and, yes, sometimes Sunday and Monday Night Football.
If you’re like me – or you have a sports-fan in your life that resembles the above – put down that Fantasy Draft Guide and listen up. Rogers has a way for you to not only stay on top of every NFL snap but also every second of your favourite hockey, basketball, baseball and NASCAR teams through our Super Sports Pak.
What’s great about the Super Sports Pak? Whether you’re a fan of a certain team or the Rams’ rookie quarterback, Rogers Cable customers can get the out-of-market games from across North America that you simply wouldn’t have access to unless you were living in, say, Dallas, Green Bay or Indianapolis.

For $29.95 a month, the Super Sports Pak gets you:
