What's made this weekend worse for the football fans has been the lack of any real NHL games to watch. That means I have been reduced to following the SJHL the last few days. I tried turning into SJHL junior hockey on the radio while driving home last night, which was okay. But even the SJHL will be over soon, so I'll soon be in withdrawal over that, too.
Needless to say, as a fan I am definitely not looking forward to the months of February and March, two true nothing months as far as sports is concerned. I don't care what anyone says - basketball is no substitute for the NFL. The only saving grace is my beloved NASCAR is coming back, but that is no replacement either.
The only saving grace about February and March is that hopefully it'll be a little warmer than it is now. But that's about it.
