Dog Days of Summer

With only one major sport going on and ESPN bored out of their mind during the lazy dog-dangling days of summer, here are some things to look forward to:

  • 41 Days until I draft #1 overall in my Fantasy Football League, starting a 10 year dynasty
  • 46 Days until UVA plays at USC
  • 46 Days until UVA is no longer bowl eligible

  • 93 Days until the Wizards lose their opener despite 20 assists from Wall and Arenas to each other, since they have no one else to pass to
  • 111 Days until Albert Haynesworth demands to be traded because the new defensive scheme is too hard for him and is causing him to be winded too often

  • 123 Days until Ohio State tries to extend its 6 game winning streak over UMich
  • 158 Days until the Winter Classic in which Crosby will complain it’s too cold outside and will force the Caps to play in the new igloo instead of Heinz Field
