Because the NFL has fashioned itself into a year-round spectacle, every event, no matter how seemingly meaningless, now takes on the same importance usually reserved for high-profile get-togethers (like, say, the NBA playoffs).


That's right: The NFL will announce the 2014 schedule Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on the NFL Network because, well, they can.

If you thought Day 3 of the NFL Draft was boring (seriously, the league has made watching an old guy in a suit read names off a card for eight hours must-see TV), this is worse.

Then again, that's the NFL's plan: Remain a storyline, even when the season is four months off.
