What are everyone's plans for Madden Holiday?  Who's getting it at midnight (or has pre-ordered the downloadable version to be played at midnight)?  Who's off from work tomorrow?  What's your first move when you get the game started ... hit practice mode, jump right into an online user game, hit up a play now with your favorite team?

I have my copy pre-ordered (download) so I'll be on as the clock strikes midnight.  Usually, when I get the game I go right to the roster page to check the Steelers ratings, etc.  Its somewhat habitual because I already know what the ratings are since they get released in advance of the actual game's release (see EDJ's Madden Ratings post) lol.  Then I usually just go straight to play now and use the Steelers against another AFC North foe (usually the Browns).  I know the Ravens have really become our main rival and most hated foe over the last 10-15 years and the Bengals are getting there, but those teams are also good and I don't want to see my Steelers losing the first time I pick up the game so I like to beat up on the Browns to get things rolling, lol.  As for Madden Holiday, unfortunately I have to be in the office on Tuesday so I won't be able to get any real time on the sticks until Tuesday night.

What about you guys?

My disc reader broke like two years ago so I always get the digital copy. I pretty much only play Madden and The Show, so this year I preordered the game and I have tomorrow off as usual so I know what my plans entail.

Checklist:
Mountain Dew
Beer
Oreos
Day off work
Easy meals to maximize efficiency.

Check, check, check, check, check.

I immediately play a Bears vs Packers matchup.
Posky is already bugging me for a midnight game, so I'll probably play him. Then I'll check out MUT and start simming franchise files to test progression settings and whatnot.

Have you (or anyone for that matter) messed around with simming through seasons in Franchise Mode?  Anything note-worthy regarding progression/regression, draft classes, off-season tasks, etc?

Just read that CFM has incorporated Practice Squad to the roster (up to 10 players).  Interesting.
