... how absolutely STRANGE it feels to NOT be totally absorbed in Mock Drafts, Combine chatter, and Coaching Carousel intrigue right about now.

Don't get me wrong -- its a great thing but I haven't felt this disconnected from NFL off-season activity in YEARS.

August can't get here fast enough!

You poor bastard. Can't think of anything more effed up than that organization. I cannot even watch NBA anymore. Checked in on a game Saturday during commercials while watching the new football league. I could not believe the obvious traveling and double dribble violations that went uncalled.

Watch the Blackhawks they are on a roll.

CANNOT. DO. IT!

As an expatriate Chicagoan living in Minneapolis, the Bulls are too hard to find and they are so irrelevant as to not make it worth the effort. I was born & raised in Chicago and lived there until 2004. I was spoiled by the double 3-peat and totally teased by the DRose years after I first moved here.

Since then, the Bulls seem to be one steaming dumpster fire and I can't believe that Paxson doesn't get held accountable for it. Gosh, they stink!

I always thought I was a Bulls fan, then Michael retired and I figured out I wasn't.

Now the NBA just sucks to watch regular season with most giving half assed effort until the last 6 minutes, blatant travels, obvious no calls and phantom calls.

Watch a little college BBall, Ice fishing, ready for the cubs.

I won't watch the NBA anymore. Traveling, flopping, preferential treatment for stars, etc. It goes on and on. It's inching closer and closer to the WWF.

I was thinking the very same thing. So weird that this place is so dead. But it's a good kind of weird. :)

Or at least they can win a game again.

I barely watch the NBA and very little college BBall since Illinois is so bad.
