In The Regular Season Grind Of The NBA, NHL And College Basketball
The Super Bowl is over (and wasn’t this year’s a snoozer), March Madness is several weeks away, the Masters isn’t until April and it’s not a Winter Olympics year.
About the only exciting thing on the sports calendar in the winter is the Daytona 500, NASCAR’s Super Bowl. And who other than a diehard fan can watch the entire race?
Ahh yes, we’re in one of the most boring times of the sports year when things are as dead as trees in the winter snow. College basketball gives fans and alumni of some schools thrills – tho certainly not at UCLA this season – and over in the pros, its the midseason grind of the NBA and the NHL.
Sure February is the start of baseball’s Spring Training but do you don’t exactly plan your weekends around Spring Training games.
Lindsey Vonn just completed her final Alpine skiing downhill run and she’s always pleasant to look at, but who pays attention to winter sports when it’s not the Olympics? Same for the X-Games. Vonn made the podium, by the way.
So what do to right? Well, get off the couch for one thing. This is a prime time to play sports instead of watch them. Ski Resorts all over the world are in their prime season (and the ski apres bars that go along with a good day on the slopes) and health clubs are full of people getting in their workouts at a brisk pace.
This will continue for a while, for there is little to keep us glued to the tube on weekends. Until football season starts, all we have are the occasional big events such as The Masters and U.S. Open in golf, Wimbledon in tennis, Opening Day in baseball, the NBA and/or NHL Playoffs and Finals and, of course March Madness.
Until then, enjoy your workouts!
