There was an overwhelming sense on Twitter, Facebook, and oh why not - even real life that it was hard adjusting to a Sunday without football. You have to admit, the lack of pigskin is going to take some getting used to. For the last 20 plus weeks we've been able to plop down on the couch and take in 9 plus hours of football before we head back to the treachery that is our worklife. And even though we're likely still on the couch all day, with the lack of football things just seem less... productive. No team to root for, no fantasy scores to check, no pizza to order. So how do we spend our Sundays until the NFL is finally back? Let's go over some ideas.
* You knew it was coming, so let me say it first. Soccer! The EPL is in full swing, and even though I'm more of an MLS guy, good soccer is good soccer. Sure, you might have to get up a little earlier to watch the Premier League, but there used to be a time where not a single TV set in America could show the game outside of a few ethnic bars in New York City. If you are more of the MLS type, the league is in it's preseason and the season starts up again in March. I'm hoping this is the year I finally pick a team and run with it, since my favorite disbanded about a decade ago (Tampa Bay Mutiny). I'm going to figure it out similar to the article where I decided to root for the Buffalo Sabres in hockey, so stayed tuned.
* Speaking of hockey, NBC is pretty good at showing games on Sundays, as is the NBC Sports Network. Find more games on NHL Center Ice, which is awesomely affordable this year. Ratings are about as high as ever, which almost begs the question - Should leagues take time off on purpose to drum up fan interest? A terribly awful question to ask but the lockout has nowhere near affected the league like it did the last time. In fact, it's almost helped. As did the NBA lockout. And the near NFL lockout. Lockouts and strikes might just be a positive in this sports world that we live in. Well, except for referee strikes - those are the worst.
* Still want to have the buddies over? Poker tournaments are the way to go. My high school life saw me at a different friends house every weekend playing cards, and even though we mostly live in the same area to this day, the card tournaments are faded. Everytime we get together we say, "Let's play cards sometime!" and all agree to it, but then never do. This is my call to action - cards next weekend boys?
* Or... grab a good DVD set and go on a television watching binge. I'm in the middle of a "Fringe Binge" and in addition to that my fiance and I just made a trade - I watch Dawson's Creek and she watches Lost. Yes, that's a lot of Joshua Jackson, but I'm a sucker for good teen dramedies.
Yeah... it's gonna be a long offseason.
