A Baseball Hater's Guide to Surviving August

I love baseball.

I track every trade rumor leading up to the July 31 deadline. I pore over the box scores before going to sleep each night. I track standings and leader boards with a passion.

But baseball isn't for everyone.

And for those sports fans who would rather watch an entire season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians than a full nine innings of a major league ballgame, the excruciating heat of the August sun can seem to linger on forever.

No NFL. No NBA. No hockey. No March Madness. No draft.

It's a barren desert with no nourishment in sight. Just baseball. Just slow, boring baseball.

But fear not. I've got news that you aren't going to hear anywhere else: August isn't that bad. Even if you hate America's pastime.

This month, there are plenty of story lines and plenty of sports to keep all fans perfectly content. So before you go into hibernation, hear me out.

And if you're still not satisfied—the NFL kicks off on September 4. I'll wake you up then.
