    The wait is on

    The dead period in sports is starting again. 27 Days till the Spring football game, and then 166 days till we play Tulsa. This part of the year SUCKS. Were stuck to sit here and hope Royce comes back, and think about the past seasons. Cant wait for September 1st to come and then that will lead us right into basketball season.

    Re: The wait is on

    I have to disagree. It's my favorite time of the sports year.
    • March Madness. My team is out, but it's the best sporting event of the year, IMO
    • Masters. As a rule I find golf unwatchable, but there's something about the Masters
    • MLB, baby! Day 1 a few weeks away. Cards look to repeat.

    - summer olympics
    - golf majors if tiger comes back healthy

    Didn't Tiger just mess up his ankle again?

    I like the olympics but the rest is pretty blah for me too.

    I've narrowed them as I've gotten older. Can't get into pro sports any more. I do like golf, and will follow the majors, but everything else pales in comparison to college football and basketball.

    There's still Champions League and EPL being played as well. This is a great time of year.

    NBA sucks
    Golf Sucks
    I use to love MLB but something about it has turned me off. If I need a nap in the summer I can turn it on. Games take to long and are 2 slow moving.
    Nascar is boring as hell to watch on TV.
    Same with Hockey.

    Really love the summer olympics (and trials before that)... I agree with the previous "blahs" on the other summer items.

    Re: The wait is on

    NHL is the only pro sport I really get into anymore. NBA is ok once the playoffs start, MLB sucks unless I'm actually at the game, and the NFL is alright. I'll probably watch the Masters. Rest of the NHL season gets me to June, then I guess I'll tune in to some baseball until Sept.
