Some of my sports fan friends are a single game fan.When the season is over, they have nothing else about which to talk until recruits are chosen for the next. Over the past week, I saw a couple countdowns for certain baseball players to report to spring training. Since October they waited for this. Football, basketball, and hockey do not cut it for them.
Something I like about soccer, football elsewhere in the world, is there is something going on all year round. The two leagues I mainly follow are:
- English Premier League starts mid August and ends mid May
- Major League Soccer starts mid March and ends early December
Then there are the various special events like the World Cup, Champions League, Euro, CONCACAF, and FA Cup to name a few.
There is always something happening. No time to catch a breath.
