Making Over Your Sports Interests
Too many sports fans limit their interests and don’t realize how much there really is to watch! Nowadays, sports fanatics are totally fixated on the NFL. In fact, this year’s NFL draft was likely the most over-analyzed in the history of the draft! Don’t get me wrong – I love football just as much as the next fan, but there is so much more to sports.
Sure, some fans divert their free time to follow Major League Baseball. More times than not, I hear them saying that they are only passing the time until football season starts. Really? Baseball is great – not to mention basketball, hockey, action sports, etc. Don’t limit yourself to just one! Ok sure, so you’re the type that will get into March Madness also. Great – why not broaden your horizons more? Here are some suggestions:
X Games/EXPN – Surfing, skateboarding, BMX, snowboarding, and so much more. There is an action sport for every season. What makes it even more exciting is that these are sports that many fans can also participate in at their own level.
Premier League and Serie A Soccer – with legendary teams like Manchester United, AC Milan, and Arsenal, this sport is filled with excitement. Every goal is a celebration and the commentators are as colorful as the crowds!
Beach Volleyball – do you like fast-moving, high-scoring action? If so, this is your sport. In addition, this is a sport that you can enjoy with friends over the summer when you’re hanging out at the beach.
Rugby - if you think you've seen "tough" athletes, watch this! If you haven't watched it, give it a shot. You'll be drawn in right away.
Other Football, Baseball, and Basketball leagues – have you heard of the IWFL? How about other minor league teams? This is where these sports really have heart.
