How many times have you heard the phrase “this is a great time of year”?
Winter thaw, summer holidays, Christmas time, all great times of year. Even as you sit in front of your TV’s on a Monday night in May, you can still say to yourself this is a great time of year. If you don’t know why it’s a great time of year you can pretty much guess that you shouldn’t be reading this right now. If you have to guess, it’s not just because of the weather, it’s not just because your favorite niece graduated from high school. It’s because of sports. Of course sports, what else could it be especially in my world, and hopefully yours since you’re engaged here right now. Not like the Phaneuf Cuthbert engagement, but you know what I mean. 
and make sure your bottle of soco hundy is handy… it’s time to watch some sports
 
If you’re a concrete sports fan like myself then you’ll know this is a great time of year because of all of the action that’s on TV and radio. No not “Wipeout” or “Howard Stern” action…ahem, anyway. 
 
We have a great time now not just because the weather is getting nicer and baseball is out of the doldrums of early spring, but because we have NBA playoffs, the Stanley Cup playoffs, auto racing, the triple crown of horse racing, the FA cup, NFL rookie camp (ok that’s a reach) everything that you could ever think of. And what’s even better is that we can sit on the couch with our hand down her pants, the remote in other one, sipping on a drink that we have leveled off on her stomach and watch every minute of all of these sports. I’m not saying I do that, but if I where to do that, that’s exactly how it would be done. 
 
Get your favorite sports channels on lock, have enough battery juice for your remote, and make sure your bottle of soco hundy is handy… it’s time to watch some sports. 
 
Oh and just so I can throw a public service announcement in here, get outside and get some sun. you need the vitamin D.
