    NHL and NBA playoffs for your local winter sports teams. Both with chances to go a long way. One of the most anticipated Red Sox season since they won it all in 04. We're still going to have the NFL Draft.


    I'm not wasting an ounce of energy discussing or reading about this crap. How can we rationally discuss a matter that's either, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 , 56, 57, 58, 59 or 60pct. WTF??? As long as it's settled by July 4th, it's not going to affect the season too much. Players can work out on their own.

    While I am definitely following the headlines on this mess, I am not really bothered by it, and like you I figure it's not worth worrying about unless we get closer to training camp season and it's still not resolved. And while I generally feel the owners are the "bad guys", I recognize the players deserve a share of the blame to. Either way, I'm certainly not about to get into arguments with anyone about it. Discuss it, maybe.

    I'm with you ... every year my focus is March Madness and then the local NBA and NHL scene. Also a bit of interest in the Red Sox but not much until the season begins - hate spring training - boring. I could care less about the labor issue as it will be resolved ... they may be greedy but they are not stupid - business is ugly - this goes on everyday.

    Have been lucky enough to avoid this whole depressing nfl situation by attending the Big East Womens competition in Hartford and the Mens Big East in NY. To top it off our local Huskies men and womens teams walked away champions. Good for a weeks distraction. But back on the net after a week away it appears the NFL, NFLPA P***ing and spitting match has only escalated. At least we have the NCAA tounament to help get us through the next few weeks. Am considering canceling the NFL network package out of protest to the situation.

    I do a bracket at work, and that's the extent of my caring about the NCAA. NHL all the way!

    The Patriots are not only football to me, they are pretty much sports. Outside of the Patriots I don't have any strong sports following.

    I don't have the many days and weeks of time to waste constructing a NCAA bracket that isn't foobar

    Same with me, although I'll watch pretty much any NFL game/combination of teams. I'll watch the Bruins and Celts if they get far into the playoffs, but can't bring myself to tolerate baseball anymore. I do enjoy the Olympics. I wish there was another sport I could feel passionate about when the NFL is not playing.

    You certainly are a man of your word. I always thought that it was a figure of speech until I read your post.

    No I didn't

    Cincinnati is my team,I grew up in PA watching the big rivalry between the Phillies,Pirates and Reds and I was a huge fan of Johnny Bench and Pete Rose (who never left Cincy in my heart)

    I am not a fan of the Red Sox...in fact in sports I like the Patriots,Celtics and Revolution but am not a Red Sox or Bruins fan,it's the Reds and Phoenix Coyotes in those sports.

    It was a lame joke, I obviously knew you meant Cinci Reds.

    I don't get into the March Madness thing. Not much a fan of college basketball. Too bad the NCAA Frozen Four doesn't get more coverage though.

    College basketball is much more popular because 99.9% of the top North American basketball players play it. That's not anywhere near true in college hockey. And because the games have a lot more strategy than the pro game. They're more fun to watch than the NBA.

    im a long long term pats fan and tix holder. Yet i love college b-ball and the tournement. My daughter grew up idolizing the uconn women and went to their camp for a couple of summers. So for us...it's double barrel mens/womens.
    Listening to WFAN on Monday and the general comment is that this is the best tournement ever.
    GO UCONN!!!:)
