I've wondered this for a while now -- why Thursday night for the Pats during preseason? Anyone know? Friday night would be bad because of the weekend commuter traffic around Boston, but I'd think the Krafts would want the games on Saturday or Sunday to drive more business to Patriot Place. I remember during the Bledsoe years there were some preseason games on weekend afternoons. The only guess I could offer on them avoiding Saturday would be because of the Jewish sabbath. Don't know why they can't/don't play on Sundays.
