Good morning Rams fans. Today is the day. Hope springs eternal, etc. We are now two hours, or less, away from the season opener, with the St. Louis Rams in Detroit to take on the Lions.

For a look ahead at the game, be sure to check out 3k's game preview from Saturday as well as our five keys to the game.

We're pulling in a sizable amount of new readers here on the site, so if you're new to the fold, we'll have a game thread up to discuss what's happening with other fans. I'll drop GIFs and videos in there as it happens. Also be sure to follow us on Twitter @Turfshowtimes and on our Facebook page. I'll have more pictures, etc. on those two outlets.

If you're getting ready for the game, post your photos here to share with us how you're wearing your colors or getting ready to party down.
