It’s that time of year when sports fans are either licking their chops in anticipation of the new MLB season, or engrossed in the men’s NCAA basketball tournament.
Personally I don’t care about college hoops and I simply don’t have the time in my busy schedule of life to fully understand or appreciate baseball, so what am I left with?
Well after the NFL owners and NFL players went into ‘lockout’ mode, the answer is not a fat lot.
I don’t know about you but even the 2011 NFL draft has lost some of it’s sex appeal, due to the doom and gloom of the lockout.
Here in England we are facing the reality that we are very unlikely to get a fifth consecutive year with a regular season NFL game being played at Wembley Stadium.
Yes it’s not high on the agenda but losing the momentum that has seen the likes of Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Philip Rivers come and play a game in London is kinda depressing.
I’m going to have to try and remove the dark cloud that is currently floating above my head, and focus on the upcoming draft.
The problem is that if players are locked out and ‘decertified’ then it looks like they cannot be used as trade bait? Or can they? Someone please help me with this.
For those of you who read this post outside of England you won’t appreciate that on top of an NFL lockout there is also absolutely diddly squat on tv at the moment. No 24, no Lost, no real epic shows.
If anyone has any recommendations for me to stop my depression then please let me know.
Lets just hope the draft is not adversely affected by the lockout and we get back to some NFL glitz and glamour sharpish.
