“Personally, I got about ten solid reasons why I’ve tried to stop playing sports in the off-season (which, in this case, is football): I say this because:
a) there are too many sports to worry about when that sport ain’t on …
b) while I recognize the value of the off-season in football (learned through getting boos in the Franchise Edition of Madden, oh-so-long ago last I played, can’t we just wait for them to actually win or lose?
c) not appreciating the off-season is exhausting …
d) takes away from my ability to appreciate Kobe possibly missing the playoffs (or his team’s subsequent impending first-round exit from the playoffs)
e) Formula 1
f) UEFA Champions League
i) teaching the kid to hit without using a tee by increasing confidence and pitching at the bat (this is actually “a” I think) …
j) impending arrival of the Orioles and if that’s not enough, the frenzy around how dominating the Yankees won’t be, which for me is sometimes enough.”
Recent post highlighting the complaints that local football fans have about the local football team’s roster moves and free agency losses and gains and in the end, isn’t a bit much? Isn’t it like political coverage on the weekend after an election?
