Here we are now, at the beginning of July. Unless you’re a big fan of baseball (which I’m not, though I am feverishly fighting to get my fantasy team in the playoffs), this is arguably the worst time of the year for you as a sports fan: No football, no basketball, no major golf tournaments, even European football is on hiatus at this time.
August is sure something to look forward to though: Serious football talk will fire back up and some tear-jerking Olympic stories will unfold before our eyes in Beijing (and perhaps a certain national basketball team will put an end to an embarrassingly long gold medal drought).
So what are we left with to distract us until then? Mid-season baseball, U.S. Olympic qualifying events, a July 4th hot-dog eating contest (quite amusing, actually) and my favorite…Recycled JoePa rumors that I considered writing about but ultimately was too lazy and unmotivated to do so.
Bottom line: I’ll likely be “coasting” this month with regards to relevant blogging starting…right about…NOW.
Take it away, Urkel!
