The Best Sports Month of the Year is Here!

The best sports month of the yearOctober has arrived. Though I do miss the warm weather and good times of summer, October is always exciting because when it comes to sports, there is no better month.

It’s time to neglect your responsibilities and ignore your girlfriend because you have a lot of TV watching to do. With college football on Saturdays, NFL football on Sundays and the MLB playoffs just about every day, there isn’t much time for anything else.

When it comes to sports, there is really no other month that compares. For instance, as I publish this today, there are 3 MLB playoff games and an entire slate of NFL games. With football and baseball being my two favorite sports, I have some tough decisions to make. I literally need about 4 televisions in my living room. It’s fantastic. Since football and baseball are also our country’s two most popular sports, it’s likely you feel the same way.

Some may claim March is the best sports month. But outside of March Madness, there really isn’t much going on. And really, March Madness is only exciting during the opening weekend. After that, your bracket is totally fucked and you lose interest.

Others may claim that February is the top sports month. I don’t see how that’s possible. Sure you have the biggest game of the year in February. Super Bowl betting is always fun. Yet after that first weekend, you have a pretty quiet month.

One could also make an argument for June. The NHL and NBA finals are going on, while baseball is in full swing. That might be the best argument, but it’s hard to make that case when the NFL, our country’s most popular league, is in the offseason.

That’s why I say we are in the midst of the best sports time of the year. So enjoy it! If you disagree, leave a comment and tell me what month you think is better and why.

    Plus, you can call October “Rocktober,” and the Islanders home opener also takes place. Double winner!

    The only negative is TBS playing “Written in the Stars” ad nauseam during every commercial break of the MLB playoffs.

    Christ that’s what that song is called? I wish I didn’t know. I was just saying to Mrs. McGee how much that song pisses me off now.

    Another plus about this particular October: Brandon Inge. I like Inge a lawt.
