Writer's Block: What to Do During Spring Sports?

Scott Pauley@scott.pauleyAnalyst IApril 3, 2008

This is the time of the year when it becomes difficult to cover the world of sports.

You see, I am a fan of college football. I can handle a little college hoops, if it relates to the Mountaineers of West Virginia. 

As you may know, the college football season ended in January. The college basketball season ended when Xavier beat WVU in overtime, during the Sweet Sixteen.

So what's left? 

We have the start of the Major League Baseball season, and from what I hear the NBA is still playing some games. 

There is always the college, spring sports, but baseball is unfortunately the only spring sport that most folks know exist. Which is fine, I can handle some baseball, but there again, only if it involves WVU.

Therefore, over the next few weeks, it looks like we will hear a lot about the NBA, NHL and hopefully the NFL draft. 

However, what will we be reading about after those stories are history? 

I imagine that Tiger will come up from time to time and someone will mention tennis, college softball, college baseball and perhaps even college rowing. 

As for me, I will probably concentrate on college football's spring practice season.

Who knows, I may even slip out a story or two about the useless behavior of NASCAR's, Tony Stewart, the whining of Jeff Gordon, or perhaps the hope I have for Kyle Busch to do well, since Hendrick Motorsports abandoned him.

Whatever happened to the Richard Petty, Geoff Bodine, Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, Bill Elliott, Darrell Waltrip kind of racing? (Marc, this is rhetorical)

Chances of an article from me about baseball outweigh those of racing. Moreover, since -in my opinion- that's all we really have for a while, I hope it's a great baseball season.

So, I suppose I should look forward to reading articles about a little bit of everything.

Sounds good to me! 

However, I just can't wait for the college football season to get underway.

Well, thanks for reading this article about nothing (if you even got this far).
