Question to all of the sports fans out there
Now that football is over where do you get your sports fixes? Are you excited for baseball? Already been watching basketball and hockey? What sport do you shift your attention to?
I watch Basketball and Baseball. I am a Chicago Cubs fan and I think they will progress this year with the new GM they got from Boston Redsox, Theo Epstein. I think they will become progressly get better as time goes on. The Boston Redsox won two World Series under him in the last decade.
I like Basketball too, I like college basketball more than the NBA, but I watch the NBA regularly. There hasn't been a lot of TV coverage of the NBA as of now. It's not as good as it was when Michael Jordan was playing, but it's still good just not great. I like the Arkansas Razorbacks and I'm from Arkansas and they're doing great this year with a new coach, former assistant coach from under Nolan Richardson, Mike Anderson, they are doing really good now and they may get a ticket to the big dance. Now they haven't been there in almost 6 years ago it's hard to believe that since they such a storied tradition for playing great college basketball, so I'm looking forward to the college playoffs it's not too far away now. Only 34 days!
I'm am not a huge Football Fan, but I enjoy rooting for the underdog. Glad the Giants pulled it off last night. Manning was incredible. Now it is time for NBA Basketball! I am excited that the lockout has finally ended so we can watch all of the exciting NBA Team compete for the coveted NBA Title. The question remains, "What will happen with the Miami Heat"? The Heat has (3) NBA Allstars on their roster, but could not gel together fast enough as a team last season to secure the Title. This year there are several teams who can take the crown from the Dallas Mavericks, who are the NBA Defending Champion for 2011. The Chicago Bulls for instance, with their League MVP Derrick Rose appear to be even stronger this year. Even though this is a short season due to the lockout it is sure to be an exciting year to watch unfold for NBA Basketball.
Basketball is my fix until baseball starts. I never have been a big fan of hockey unless the Stars are in the playoffs, then I'll pay a little attention to it.
But, even though the NFL season is over, I'm gearing up for the 2nd season – offseason. The new league year begins March 13 when teams can start signing free agents. But, there will be plenty of rumors to keep up with. Then there's the NFL draft in April, followed by OTAs and then TC. So, even though the actual field aspect of the NFL is over for now, the news is hardly over, especially with the lesser Manning – Peyton – likely to be released this week.
As a Brit as soon as our 'Football' season is over (Soccer) it will be time for Olympic Fever to hit London town.
I am sooooo gearing up for baseball. I can't wait to see how the season pans out!
until it's well into baseball season, I get a little into hockey. But more than anything, March Madness is #1 for me until then.

The NBA lockout has now started, and it threatens the 2011-2012 season, but does anybody care? It seems to be an afterthought on the sports pages, with the NFL lockout getting far more attention. I know I won't care if the NBA doesn't have a season. I prefer watching college basketball anyway. The...

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.
