Foot in the door 

Everyone’s beginning to lament how lame this summer has been — it’s already August and just how much fun have you had? At least for football fans this time of year is like spring because training camp has started and, more importantly, it is impossible to pass by a magazine rack without being blindsided by stacks upon stacks of football magazines that only come out once a year: Now. Choose from Street & Smith’s Pro Football ($5.95), Athlon Sports Pro Football Edition ($5.99) or Lindy’s 2000 Pro Football ($5.99). Similarly priced, with the same statistics, predictions and player profiles, any of the three will satisfy your football jones.
