Labor Day weekend is upon us and that means the beginning of another football season. For a lifelong football junkie, it can’t come soon enough. Sure, there are other sports to follow from February to September, but none quite fill the void that’s left after the final seconds of the Super Bowl tick away.
College basketball comes close, but that season ends in early April, which still leaves a good five-month drought. I haven’t really kept up with the NBA since the 1980s.
Baseball is all right, but I don’t really get too revved up about it until the playoffs.
NASCAR used to be exciting, but seems to have gotten dreadfully boring in recent year, although Mark Martin’s resurgence this season has been fun to watch.
I’ve tried watching the CFL, which is similar to football. It’s more like “Football Lite.” Canadians should stick to hockey and leave the football to us Americans.
But the long drought in finally over. The opening weekend of college football season kicks off Thursday night and continues through Monday evening.
Who’s playing? It doesn’t matter. I’ll be in front of my television, taking in as much of the action as possible. Football is back and us junkies are ready for our five-month fix.
