It was a pleasure to find out when I started here at Townsquare Danbury that it was a den of NFL Football fans and we all have different teams that we root for.

Lou Milano, the 15-year morning show host, is a Raiders fan, and Large Dave, the new morning show co-host, is a Jets guy. Me, it's the Chiefs, from the front side of the building we have Patriots, Lions, Jets, and Giants fans. So, you can say we are pretty diversified in our allegiances and that makes for some nice, wholesome wagering possibilities and rivalry matchup fun.

In the interest of pure fun and a little bragging rights as to who has the better football knowledge, we are holding the "1st Annual i95 NFL Pigskin Picks Challenge" or something like that. Ethan says "everything has to have a name", but for now we really don't have one for this little week-to-week NFL pick adventure we are about to go on. All we know is, that we love our football and are more than ready for the 2022 NFL season to begin.

There are 8 of us here at i95 that are a part of the NFL Pigskin Picks. John (big boss guy), Tom P (super sales guy), Big Joe (young baby-faced sales guy phenom), Big Daddy Ech (new super sales guy), Lou (morning show guy), Large Dave (morning show co-host guy), Matt Carey (just some guy Lou knows), me (Rob, new guy, afternoon drive host guy), and you guys (the listeners). If you want to participate, just let us know who you think will win in the comments and we will keep track.

Each week we will focus on 6 teams: Chiefs, Raiders, Lions, Patriots, Jets, and Giants. We may add Buffalo next week, they played on Thursday night, and too late for the pick session. Now here are this week's games:

1:00 pm: New England at Miami, Baltimore at NY Jets, and Philadelphia at Detroit.

4:25 pm: NY Giants at Tennessee, Kansas City at Arizona, and Las Vegas at LA Chargers.

Check out our picks and let us know who you think is going to win!

The First Night of the Danbury San Gennaro Festival Was a Huge Hit

The Italian culture can be explained in one word, Sunday. Being an Italian-American means, there are certainties on Sunday, Food, family and laughter. Trust me when I tell you, everyday is Sunday at San Gennaro.
