Or at least itâ€™s the lull before the Sonics.
With this quiet season just before media gets going on Sonics training and preseason, I thought we could go off topic for a general sports question.
What is your favorite time of the year for following sports?
With football starting, baseball pennant races heating up (how would I know this, Iâ€™m a Mâ€™s fan?), Iâ€™m sure there are some that like this time right now.
October is great with baseball playoffs (non-strike years), football games are starting to mean something, and basketball is starting--yeah!
The middle of winter is cool with football playoffs starting (well, pro football playoffs, urghâ€¦), basketball in full swing, and baseball winter meetings where even the Mâ€™s have a chance to look like theyâ€™re involved.
Late spring with basketball playoffs, baseball starting (the M's are not mathematically eliminated yet), the NFL draft, golf starting, and there are no more hockey scores on the ticker, thatâ€™s a good time too.
What is your favorite time of year and why?
Also, this is a good time of year to support the Sonics and Storm staying where they belongâ€”Seattle. Iâ€™m really excited about Mr. Bennett and the other new owners of the Sonics. From the little weâ€™ve gotten so far, itâ€™s possible he could be one of the great sports owners in this town in awhile. Iâ€™m hoping this new era in Sonics-land is the most thrilling ever.
