  • I’m ready for some season limits

    I love sports. I particularly like high school, most college sports, the NFL and major league baseball.  
    I wouldn’t give a plugged nickel for pro soccer or hockey. But even the sports I love need to cut back on their seasons.
    If you think about it, we are currently playing high school football, basketball and wrestling. There is college soccer, basketball, football and other college sports being played along with pro football and basketball. Pro basketball will go way into the baseball season next June.   
    It is just too much.
