This is the time of year that I can't stand. Sports news is at it's weakest. NBA finals? Who cares! Hockey? Very little interest for me. Baseball is in full swing (no pun intended) but with so many games, there is not a lot to talk about. I will watch almost every baseball game I can, but the networks like the "matchups". It gets old watching the Yankees and Red Sox every week. I hate both of those teams.
College football? Sure ESPN likes to tease us with the Spring games, but unless you're a fan of those teams, do you really watch them? Do you really care? You can go to ESPN Classic and watch re-runs, but you should know the outcome of the 2007 Sugar Bowl by now.
The NFL? Well, we should be talking about signings and trades and free agency. As fans of the NFL, that is what we like to hear about and talk about right now. With the owners and players union crawling along in their negotiations, we don't get hardly any news from them. Maybe a daily posturing update from both sides, but that's it. We do get speculation of what's going on from all the NFL talking heads, but do they really know what's going on? They're in the same boat as the rest of us, in limbo.
