Every year. From mid-January to the mid-March are the worst eight weeks in sports.

-NFL is over (for the Bears)
-College football is over
-Baseball hasn't started
-NBA All-Star break (Bulls suck this year)
-NHL All-Star break (Hawks suck this year)
-Mid-Season college basketball
-Golf hasn't ramped up yet

There is LITERALLY NOTHING interesting to watch on TV in regards to sports.

These are the sports' fans doldrums, and good God are they boring...

Hockey is on. Hawks are down but it has been fun seeing the young improve and Kane kick ass

Normally, Jan-April is my favorite part of the sport season.

But without any real draft picks

:bored:

I'll try to watch a bit more hockey here and there, but I can't wait for baseball.

This is the ultra-doldrums this year because there's no Day 1 activity for the Bears draft, so less to get nitty-gritty on. I just got done moving to a new house, so I'm absolutely exhausted from that, coupled with having a few big-picture goals to accomplish with the site and my own personal stuff, there's more than enough to occupy ol' UOK's plate.

Thankfully it's going to be shitting snow for the next week or two, which gives me a nice excuse to relax.

I live in FL.... this is fishing season! Runs every year for me from about now until Week 1 of the NFL season. Then I don't see my boat for 4 months. If anyone makes it down I would be glad to take you out.
