Waiting for something to happen

ORLANDO -- We're here at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando waiting.

Well, that's what reporters do most days as the first day of the NFL owner's meetings is underway.

We saw Gene Jones, the wife of Jerry Jones, headed to a spouses event sponsored by Reebok. We also ran into Rich Dalrymple, public relations chief of the Cowboys. We asked Rich for a little face time with Jerry.

He said that wouldn't be a problem.

At some point today the prime-time NFL schedule will be released and the Thanksgiving Day games will also be announced. Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, is expected to speak with reporters.

Several members of the media are staying at the JW Marriott, across the way from the Ritz-Carlton. After the meetings, several reporters are going to get a facial. Matt Mosley, our NFC East blogger is thinking of getting one as well.
