Summer Alternatives

Sports to enjoy right now

With slim pickings in the sports department, late summer is a good time to check out the games that get crowded out at other times of year.

The Summer of Our Discontent

In the bleakest of sports times, there may still be reason to cheer

This is the worst time to be a sports fan. 

Late June to early August has always been a tough time. There are years when we have the Summer Olympics to get us by. There's a brief respite for the Tour de France, although it's lost some of its luster recently. And yes, I am excited about both the upcoming Women's World Cup as well as the 15th WNBA Season. But there's no denying these are dark times.

The NBA, NFL and NHL are all done with their seasons. MLB, for those who care, hasn't really picked up any steam yet by this point in the season. But most importantly, for now, the two behemoths of American sports, basketball and football, seem to be on a collision course with no righting in sight.
