These rainy days of July leave one with a lot of down time. TV baseball games stand in to a point and ESPN and the MLB Network do a great job of covering the sport.
I’m not a big car racing or soccer fan and only really watch golf when an event like the British Open this coming weekend is on.
I can’t help it, but like most good ol’ southern boys my favorite sport is football.
Not Canadian football, which I’ll watch for a few plays, not arena football, which I might watch for a quarter, but good ol’ American high school, college and pro football.
And as slow as the time seems to pass, it won’t be long until those football seasons are on us again.
The pros are getting ready to start camp and will play meaningless exhibition games, but at least they’ll keep me interested for a half. High school and college practices start around the first of August with local high school games set for August 23, and the start of the college season set for the next week.
Until then I guess it’s keep up with the pennant races, see if Miguel Cabrera will win another triple crown, see if Chris Davis keeps hitting home runs to take that title from Cabrera, and try to pay more attention to golf. All that will be okay, but none of it’s like good ol’ football.
