Schedule release, Fitz takes a swing and other stuff

Posted by Darren Urban on April 22, 2014 – 4:06 pm

A couple of late afternoon things to touch on:

— The NFL officially announced the 2014 schedule will be released Wednesday at 5 p.m. Arizona time (8 p.m. eastern). Be sure to check then not only for the schedule but for various schedule-related content, including one to download. Yes, it’s kind of funny that the schedule release means so much, especially since we are only talking dates and times here (and TV appearances), but not opponents. We already have long known not only who the opponents are but where the Cardinals will play them. Still, it’s a big deal. People want to make plans. Certainly I am paying attention to what weekends I will be out of town.

— Larry Fitzgerald has been working out here with the Cards, but he’s got a non-football game to play too. Saturday night is his annual charity softball game at Salt River Fields. Fitz again has a pretty nice guest list, including Colin Kaepernick, Richard Sherman, Anquan Boldin and Kurt Warner. Now, Fitz isn’t exactly Mike Trout out there — he didn’t exactly shine when he took batting practice at a Diamondbacks game a few years back — but he hangs in there. It’s all about the Larry Fitzgerald Foundation, right? Click here for tickets.

— April 26th is also Pat’s Run, in which I will be taking part once again and hopefully some of you are too. It’s been an emotional couple of days thinking about Pat Tillman and his legacy on the 10-year anniversary of his death. Pat’s Run is one of those great things that came out of it.

— The 2014 Cardinals cheerleading squad will be announced Thursday night, during an FSN Arizona special televised at 6:30 p.m. (and then immediately posted on

— Finally, don’t forget about Thursday night’s Spring Tailgate, including the live TV show. All the details are here.

    ESPN OTL(Over The Lines) had a wonderful special on Pat Tillman that was very deep and more full than any story I’ve ever seen or read. It is also online for those that missed it. For once they have truly honored him and told the whole story about one of the greatest Cardinals ever. I just wanted to say thank you to Pat Tillman and the Tillman family.
    Darren you truly were lucky to get to cover such a great person that was taken from us tragically, but he will forever be remembered and honored by our wonderful organization and great fans!

    Hopefully, he is only out in a couple months or less.
