Public service announcement: Rugby league is back, baby.
Real, actual, footy.
Remember that? The feel of the Steeden. The crunch of a big hit. The thrill of a try. The joy of a beer watching the big game on the widescreen.
After everything rugby league has done in the off-season, we're still like Homer Simpson getting sick after eating a deteriorating 10-foot sandwich for days.
"How can I stay mad at you?"
March brings such unbridled optimism, before all your premiership hopes and dreams are crushed into a cube for another year.
The summer recipe for the Dragons has tasted particularly spicy for fans this year.

Spoonfuls of Jack de Belin court case, a ladle of NRL's "no-fault" standing down policy and a sprinkling of discussion about Gareth Widdop's move to fullback.
The Cowboys' biggest asset, without Johnathan Thurston, is an imposing forward pack, so it will be fascinating to see how McGregor uses Matt Dufty off the bench and Cameron McInnes and Ben Hunt as a potential lock and hooker combination.
It's all designed around a quick-fire plan to exploit tiring forwards and offers the Dragons more tactical flexibility than most teams.
And then there's the possible vulnerabilities.
Winger Mikaele Ravalawa can expect a baptism of fire when he makes his NRL debut, having been given the nod ahead of Zac Lomax, who was so impressive in the centres last year.
Ravalawa had been earmarked for a Super Rugby career as a teenager in New Zealand, but saw the light and converted to the greatest game of all.
"He's certainly an athlete," Dragons coach Paul McGregor said after beating Newcastle in their first trial game.
"Six foot two, 93 kilos, he can run, changes the ball in each hand, fend with either arm, explosive.
"We've just got to keep working with him, he's only new to our systems. He's a big boy and something we're looking for as outside backs, that speed and size."

Such has been Jordan Pereira's progession, he is now the first winger picked following Jason Nightingale's retirement and Nene Macdonald's move to Townsville, where he'll meet his former club in round one.
Pereira also earned a contract extension to keep him at the club until the end of 2021.
But for Ravalawa, the blowtorch will be instantly applied, given 2010 Dragons premiership coach Wayne Bennett had success directing South Sydney to attack St George Illawarra's right edge in the Charity Shield at Mudgee. The Bunnies' focus on peppering that side cost Lomax a spot for round one.
The flow-on effect of de Belin's absence is Tyson Frizell moving into the middle of the field and Jacob Host and Luciano Leilua patrolling the right edge with Ben Hunt, Euan Aitken and Ravalawa.
How much they've been able to tighten the defence in the past two weeks likely determines victory or defeat on Saturday night.
Either way, we're at least talking about the footy again, for now.
