So now what am I supposed to do? My favorite sport is off until October, that's just wonderful. I have been contemplating what to do until Midnight Madness in the fall.

Here is what I have come up with.

Luckily, the Washington Capitals clinched the division once again this season, and luckily I decided to be a season ticket holder this season. My renewal for the 2009-10 season guarantees I have tickets for this season's playoffs.

Next week, I do not know who the Caps will face in the first round, but I will be there. I am crossing my fingers they will be able to advance past the first round of the playoffs, and why not, lets get to the Stanley Cup finals.

Baseball started up this week. Unfortunately, I am not an avid baseball guru and have a hard time watching it on television. For the next month or so however, I will be going to the "Hap" to watch, the now nationally ranked, Mason baseball team play.

But if Roy Halladay is on television and pitching, I will tune in to watch him, since he is my favorite major league player.

I will be watching a ton of golf, now that Tiger is back in action. The Masters begins tomorrow and you can bet I will be following Tiger from the first tee to the 18th green. Get that green jacket!

It's slow in the summer, but we all find different things to follow. These sports get me through the summer, and before we know it, NFL camps will be starting up, the Hall of Fame induction in Canton, pre-season games, etc.

For a Super Fan, it is the most difficult task to make it through the summer, so I may be spending most my time at the pool.
