RIP, NFL Season (I Wish)

It didn't really hit me until I saw the annual post-Super Bowl Disneyworld commercial this morning. When Joe Flacco shouted to the world, "I'm going to Disneyworld!", that's when I knew: Baseball season has arrived.

No more "week this" and "week that." Instead, we're going to start hearing, in another few months, "day game after a night game."  The PUP List will be replaced by the Disabled List. Head coaches will be replaced by managers. Concussion debates will be replaced by the 7-Day Concussion List. Cheerleaders will be replaced by the Bleacher Creatures. Quarterbacks will be replaced by catchers. And, so on and so on...

No more talk about football until this summer.

I wish.

Spring Training camps start opening next week. Last year I was shocked and saddened at the small amount of attention news outlets gave to this news. I'm sure I will be just as sad, but not shocked, this year as well. 

At least I'm not a hockey fan. I don't know how those guys stand it: being ignored day in and day out, all season long. Well, they'd probably tell me they're used to it, and that I'd better get used to it, too.

Okay. I'll try.
