The reality hits that I won't have a baseball game to watch until another crappy winter has come and gone. Hate that feeling.

[Baseball] breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall all alone."

Steve- Thanks for sharing some Bart!

And yet for me, the winter season means hockey...
with the playoffs in the spring the king for post-season play in any sport.

Not a hockey fan but it does seem like that sport rises to the occasion every post season. Too long (way too long) post season just like basketball if you ask me, but there is a real thrilling intensity when push comes to shove and the games actually count.

I actually watch more football than baseball so I don't mind this time of year. I went to the rams vs packers game and couldn't believe it when Ty ran that ball out of the end zone. I was hoping I'd get to see a Rodgers game winning 4th quarter drive in person.

I am always saddened at the last out of the World Series. Being a big college basketball fan is the only saving grace as I wait for the start of Spring Training.

I hate when no baseball is on tv!!!! I also follow Formula 1 auto racing and their season doesnt have much longer to go, and when its gone too its really bad for me with my two sports gone for months.

I was gonna try to get into football more than I have been the last decade or so, I love the NY Giants, but they are the dregs of the earth this year with a record of like 1-7 so far. Oh the humanity!!!!
