    From the moment the superbowl ends to the moment March Madness starts there's absolutely nothing going on.

    Football's done. Basketball is at the point where we're just waiting for the playoffs to start. I'm waiting(and not very patiently) for March Madness and Baseball to get going...

    gah.


    February blows.

    Well College Basketball is in the heart of the conference season and teams are playing for seeding and for tournamnet births.

    Seriously? I think right now is awesome- the Western Conference fighting for play offs spots is awesome.

    Thats the difference between casual fans of college basketball and diehard fans of the same (I'm definitely in the latter, and wishing I had more time to watch games)

    I'm with A_J on this one. I can't stand college hoops and while I like the NBA pretty well, I just want the playoffs to start already. As a baseball fan first, a football fan second, and a basketball fan a distant third, this month is sports hell.

    For all the people in this country who are always drunk on the college sports Kool Aid, of course February "stinks" in the sports world. :p

    June through August is always the worst for me. Hockey's just ended and the NFL season doesn't start until September. And no, I don't count preseason. :p

    At least those are summer months, so it's much easier to occupy my time, like...doing stuff. Say, maybe even going to a baseball game. :eek:

    At least the NBA trade deadline was exciting this year.

    But, yeah, I can't wait for the tourney to start

    From my, entirely correct, point of view, February is a good month because Everton are really very good right now.

    When football (my football) is over for the summer I really don't mind as I like the break. Makes the uptake much more gratifying come August.

    I'm still trying to figure out why I should care about regular season college basketball games, but I think July is actually the worst sports month. At least we have NBA regular season right now, and the playoff picture starts to take shape, as well as (this year, at least) blockbuster trades.

    I agree...summer is a bad time to be a sports fan. I'm still rooting for the Pirates, even though I know they'll be terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost close to 100 games this year...again. [face_plain] But February is exciting, with hockey and college hoops going on. Especially hockey. :cool:

    Hockey should be the most important sport around here this time of year. Trade deadline just passing over, teams fighting for playoff spots. Points are so close in the standings its just so freakin exciting! This is a great time of the year for hockey fans! [face_devil]

    Oh, yeah. I forgot that the Olympics were this year.:oops: But still, they don't start until, what, August? Late June and July are going to be thin pickings for me.
