    I am falling into the abyss that lies between the end of college football and the beginning of baseball in the spring. I suppose I have some distractions like the NFL and march madness but by in large I am a man without a sport until spring. Am I alone?

    The Australian Open is going on right now. College hoops are in their conferences.

    If you didn't notice, we're smack dab in the middle of figure skating season! Jeez.

    That's good saftey. Always tie you ladder off. So you don't fall.

    late January and February is a relatively boring time of the year for sports. Superbowl matchup has been set - Australian Open takes place mainly in the wee hours of the morning here in the US (I guess it's easier if you live in the European time zones) - although I got to see the second half of the very long Nadal-Verdasco match this morning.

    College basketball seems to be almost pointless until you get to March - even the major matchups don't really matter much because these teams are all going the big dance anyway.

    There's the NBA & NHL -- haven't these teams already played enough games? - Let's begin the playoffs now!! -- One of the best NBA seasons was in 1999 after the strike and the regular season was reduced to only 50 games or so.

    There's the winter olympics - but that's only every four years - still one more year until we get to see Bode Miller bomb out again on the slopes!!

    This year, there's the World Baseball Classic coming in March - which is a lot more fun than the usual spring training.

    There's the news - but if I see Rod Blagojevich's face one more time....

    oh well - there's always the Knicks....

    nuh they'd rather sit and watch two crickets having a race while waiting for the baseball season to start than watching soccer.

    T
    Exactly!! It is almost as if the regular season were a pre-season. I will watch March Madness but as for the rest of it, wake me up till we get there!!
