So, we are into week 2 without any more NFL, and we sports junkies are surviving. I give props to all the major sports leagues currently in season for stepping it up a notch this weekend. 

In particular, props to the NHL for holding their successful Heritage Classic outdoor game in Calgary while also holding Hockey Day in America in the USA, which included a doubleheader of exciting games televised on NBC.

And in Los Angeles the NBA All-Star Game was tonight.

There were also other sports going on -- college hoops on CBS, golf, you name it -- but really, who cares about most of them. But good on these three other leagues for coming through this weekend to help sports fans get over the end of the NFL season.

Speaking of the NFL -- in what is surely a positive sign to fans that both sides are finally getting serious about things, their labor negotiations are now being assisted by federal mediation.
