The dog days of summer are approaching, all sport fans know what that means for us. The NBA/NHL seasons will be concluding in about 3 weeks, the NFL doesn’t start back up with training camp until late July, and college sports have ended in which seems like forever ago.
We are a bit lucky this year with the Olympics in Rio starting August 5th however, but aside from that, our fix, will be the NBA Summer league games from late June to early July until NFL teams begin to report for camp.
So that’ll leave us with one option….
“America’s favorite past time BASEBALL”
Baseball hits its peak during the summer, division races are tight and teams are starting to jock for position for the pennant.
The only problem is I have no rooting interest in baseball which makes hard for me to be more than a casual fan.
So I’ve decided to take me talents and fan-hood to some lucky team this summer.
I’ve put together a short list of some teams that I feel I may connect with, but I’ll need your help in deciding the lucky team.
New York Yankees: Well they’re the Yankees so that’s an easy choice. I reside in Buffalo, NY so we do have the state connection working for us.
New York Mets: Another State connection, so that’s a possiblity and they also seem to be a team on the rise.
Toronto Blue Jays: They’re the Affiliate of my hometown minor league team the Buffalo Bisons so it’ll be neat to possibly see some of the Major League players when they’re on assignment from Toronto.
Cleveland Indians: Just a 3 hour drive up the I-90 in close proximity.
San Francisco Gaints: 3 World Series in the last several years and I was a big fan of Barry Bonds while he chased the Homerun record.
The decision won’t be easy but with your help I think I’ll come to a decision that I’ll be satisfied with for years to come.
