It finally happened. This was the week we got to take the Infiniti Q50 out for a spin. I've got to tell you, it didn't just live up to my expectations, it surpassed them. If you haven't experienced 400 horsepower before, you need to give this car a test drive. It will totally change the way you think.

Of course, it's a good time to change the way you think, because football season is finally here and there are a lot of changes coming this season.

First, let's talk Antonio Brown. This helmet issue seems to have taken the sports media by storm recently, but look at it from another perspective. He is going through the proper channels to try to appeal the ruling or find a way to give himself extra time to transition into using the league's new, approved helmets. Whether or not you think it's as big a deal as he is making it out to be, there is a process for this kind of thing and he's following it. Besides, we all know at the end of the day he's going to play with the new helmet if he has to, so let's dial it back a little.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are racking up wins in spite of their mediocre pitching rotation. All season people have insisted the Yankees need to improve their pitching staff if they want to make a serious run at the World Series, but what if they don't? They have a lot of firepower and they might not have to be good. They might only need to be good enough. With the way the Yankees are hitting the ball out of the park this season, they are going to have a serious shot at the title come October no matter what happens on the mound. It's up to the rest of us to wait and see what happens.

One thing's for sure, after the ride we just took, it's clear the Infiniti Q50 is a lot better than "good enough." Lia Infiniti GM Steve Coons let us take this car directly off the showroom floor and onto the Capital Region roads and I have to tell you I might be a little obsessed. I'm thinking of going back for a second drive with this one. Yes, it really is that fun to drive.
