    My guess is you...


    5. Take up watching another professional winter* sport
    4. Go out and do more with family and/or friends
    3. Take up a recreational activity such as skiing or Ice fishing
    2. Play a football video game
    1. Watch your DVDs of your home team in the Super Bowl, or read up on the history of the franchise

    There's also the Winter Olympic Games held every four years, the next one happens in 2014. But the NFL should be back by then.


    * There could be an impending NBA lockout too.

    No Jersey Selected

    I won't be back from Afghanistan until early November anyway. Between the NCAA and the NHL season starting in November, I'll be ok. I'll miss it, but the longer it's gone the less I will notice.

    Well during the off-season the new Super League (Rugby League) season has started, which keeps me occupied until November, then if the NFL is locked out, we get 5-6 NCAA games a week shown here (4 live, 2 through the week on delay) and the MLB.

    The NFL just means my 2 favourite sports are on year round with a slight overlap with the end of the Rugby and start of the NFL, then the week following the super bowl, the rugby starts, so it works out great :D a lockout will annoy me though college games just aren't the same.

    That's the other Rugby :D (Union) the cauliflower is caused by the scrums/rucks/mauls...only one of them happens in League :cool:

    EDIT:

    If you've never seen a game, try find somewhere to watch a game it's one of the most un-noticed sports out there and one of the best.

    big rugby fan...went down under in the 90's and got hooked...always thought there should be a pipeline of punters to the NFL from the ranks of the rugby leagues...I saw guys litterally kicking the ball 80 yards like it was a day in the park

    Well, given that I have seen what my class will look like next year and they are likely going to be a handful, that will keep me occupied. Then I have season tickets to UConn football and the Red Sox...oh and my son will be two by next fall. I'll be plenty busy.

    The NFL would be a welcome distraction from it all though. A VERY welcome distraction. Get a deal done!

    oh man seeing Rex show up weighing 420 for week 1 would make a month layoff almost worth it.

    I was thinking more along the lines of his choice of entertainment, but that's a disturbing enough thought on its own. :eek:
