i dont know about you guys but i cant watch a baseball like i can other sports. Im not interested in the World Cup. Summer is always the longest time of the year. Any suggestions besides pro wrestling?
Figure out a way to be able to watch baseball!
In all seriousness, if you can't find a sport to be interested in, pick up a new hobby or something. What that could be is really endless but why not?
Everyday I find myself thinking of "what if" on the entire spectrum ranging from likely to absurd.
When I start getting so amped up that I feel like I need a drink, I workout or do ab excercises. I am still really overweight, but I've lost 7 pounds over the past 6 weeks. I really wish I was kidding.
than I am the NHL or NBA, so I'm mostly following the Tigers and looking ahead to football season. I'm also a fan of most of the sports video games out there, so that can help ease the waiting period until football season starts. Right now I'm in early Sept. as the Tigers in Baseball Mogul 2011, and on the verge of a division title, so that's been fun.
if you don't like baseball, I'd be willing to guess that it's not your thing...(just a guess though).
But, there is the US Open in 2 weeks, the British Open, and the PGA. Just an idea.
idk about you guys but I like making fun of Juggalos via the Intertubes.
I work from 7:30 to 5 though so I basically get home, eat dinner, take a half hour run, go to sleep.
at the rate the NBA drags out the finals I might not have to worry about it for a few weeks
because while I love sports as much as the next guy who loves sports as much as I do, it's really, really good to have some time away from what can be the serious emotional investment of sports.
sex, with the wife
non productive work projects
front porch swing with an adult beverage
watching the kids ride their bikes
internet searches for worthless information
I keep busy working on my golf game.
Fulfilling a list of things I've always wanted to do/see in Ann Arbor.
When sports seasons are over, I take advantage of it by doing two things...
1. Catching up on video games
2. Building up some marital capital that I inevitably have to spend every fall.
are the prime sporting events, working out for physical fitness, Lumosity and Chess for mental fitness (lumosity is a cool brain fitness website, highly recommend), yardwork, ride my R1, oh yeah, visit here.
I count down the days until football starts and play a lot of video games.
seriously...it puts you in a different place and really does pass the time...come September you will be refreshed and ready for our rebirth
1. Golf. Now that my son has taken up the game, it gives me something we can spend time doing together.
2. Flying. I really want to get back into it this summer. Sold my plane a few years ago and I've really missed it.
3. Vacations and weekend trips. If you can couple flying and golf with getaway vacations, you've got a really, really good life.
beach with the family
lots of patio time and bbq
Baseball and world cup are the obvious answers to your tv-watching woes. If you don't really enjoy baseball maybe starting a fantasy team will help you get into it more? Gambling always makes me feel like every game is the playoffs.
I use my time in the summer to be outside playing in rec leagues (softball, volleyball, roller hockey) along with less time couched eating doritos.
I ponder whether or not Brett Favre will return, and tune in hourly to ESPN for any updates I can get.
I play more basketball and hit the gym more.
I just got back from a 200 mile, 12 day trek on the Appalachian Trail. Between a continuation of wilderness outings like that and what I hope becomes a thorough reading of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (and, damn, is this thing dense and do its German-English translations seem deficient. They do), my hands are full.
Oh yeah, I should eventually fit in studying for USMLE Step 1, too. I need to take that in July.
