The dog days of February
Posted by keithosaunders on February 29, 2012
There’s no doubt about it — February is the most brutal sports watching month of the year. After the Superbowl, which after all only takes up one evening, there is nothing but mid-season NBA and NHL games, meaningless college basketball games, and scattered baseball arbitration news. Sure there was the Ryan Braun intrigue, which was about as exciting as watching paint dry.
Then there was the Jeremy Lin sensation, which was actually kind of fun, but then came the All Star break, killing any accrued basketball-watching momentum.
Did I mention the NHL All Star game and the Pro Bowl? No?
Here is what the KNBR sports talk radio drive-time hosts have been talking about for the past two days:
Yesterday I was treated to an in-depth analysis of the NFL Combine workouts, where I learned about the inevitability of ESPN televising the event in future years. You see, it wasn’t a question of if, but when. Be still my beating heart…
Today I was held rapt (or was it hostage?) with NASCAR extra, as I learned that Danica Patrik’s tour debut consisted of four crashes. Four!
February, you are a cruel wench.
