Greatest Sports Time of the Year

Posted on: October 29, 2009 1:24 pm
 
This is possibly the best sports time of the year.  Don't get me wrong.  I love March Madness and all that time of the year brings with spring training and the golf season warming up, but this is the time of year I really look forward to!  The leaves change colors, college football on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, NFL on Sundays, great golf weather (at least in Atlanta!), the NBA has tipped off and the beginning of college basketball is near.  This is an exciting time for CBB.  Every team has question marks and hopes.  Everyone has championship aspirations.  From Air Force to Youngstown State, every one has a chance to make it to the big dance.  The advantage of college basketball over college football is the importance of the ENTIRE regular season.  People like to make the argument that college football's regular season would be tainted by a playoff.  Tell that to a BCS team who stumbles out of the gate losing their first 2 games.  All of a sudden the next 10 do not matter as much.  Put a playoff in place and the next 10 become so much more important.  The regular season shouldn't be a playoff, it should determine the playoffs.  Just my opinion, but there is a reason that every other major sport on earth has a playoff system.  Even ancient civilizations knew this was the right way to determine champions.

Greatest Sports Time of the Year

My greatest sports event in a long while was the winter classic at Fenway Park.  As A long time sports fan of all sports I encourage the NHL to keep this going as long as posible in as many cities as possible.  In a sport that is struggling in revenue it can only benefit.  My hats off to Fenway and the NHL for putting on a show nobody will forget.  And from one sports fan to another, if it comes to any area close to you I highly recommend you bring your family to this unfogettable experience.Laughing
