NY Giants Opening Game Moved to Wednesday September 5th 2012
The NY Giants will open the season one day earlier than anticipated in order to avoid time frame conflicts with President Barack Obama's Democratic National Convention speech scheduled for Thursday September 6th.
It has been reported that neither the Democratic National Convention Committee nor anyone from Obama's office requested the change. The change was made solely by the National Football League. Regardless the Wednesday night game which is scheduled to start at 8:20pm will still conflict with the second day of the convention but not on the day that the President of the United States takes the podium. Classy move on the part of the NFL!
