Happy NFL Offseason
One of my favorite days of the year is today. It is not a holiday marked on the calendar, and I am usually the only one to note of it amongst my family and friends. But today and every day after the Super Bowl I am always in a good mood. The NFL Season is done; thank god.
Now its not like the NHL gets propelled into the limelight. As we all know they will spend a week talking about the game, and then jump right into Mel Kiper telling you five times daily who will go 23rd in the first round of the NFL Draft, and that this player will automatically be a steal.
But, either way, the NBA and the NHL are now the only two of the big four currently in season. This means ESPN switches from NFL to NBA mode, but that also means that some closet football fans may start watching hockey as well.
All in all, Happy NFL Offseason...
Some quick end-of-the-week stats:
22 Sellouts last week, up to 383 for the season. Smallest number since the new year. Smart move by the NHL staying away on Super-Bowl Sunday, with only 3 games yesterday; all sold out nonetheless (Montreal, Washington, and Edmonton hosted games). San Jose now leads the league with 25 sellouts.
That's all for now, look out for a revenue sharing post this afternoon.
