This was a sad weekend for a lot of sports fans. That's because the NFL off-season has now begun, and for the first time in months there has been no football to watch.
Also, I gotta give props to the NHL for stepping up to the plate in the last few weeks to do its best to fill the NFL void. Two weeks ago they had the All-Star game and this weekend was Hockey Day in Canada, and next weekend is the big outdoor Heritage Classic in Calgary.
I think all this is better than the basketball offerings out there that now dominate TV. For some reason, hoops just doesn't cut it to the same extent as football does-- my reaction to it is "I can watch hoops the rest of the week!"
Anyway, all those sports are keeping me occupied. Heck, I miss football already, but there's plenty of other things to watch.
