In 3 weeks time we will experience a phenomenon commonly referred to in the sports world as the perfect storm. It's the time of the year when all the major sports are going at the same time (as well as the MLS), college hoopers get their feet wet with a little midnight madness, and the BCS begins to take shape. The NHL is usually a part of the festivities, but money issues have them out of the picture this year. For a lot of people this may seem like sensory overload, but for the die hard sports fan there's nothing quite like it.
Die hard sports fans should proceed with caution. Spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, and significant others will almost certainly object to the increase in sports watching options. It will seem like there's a game on every channel every minute of the day. This can lead to irritation, fights, unrealistic expectations, or even worse, the loss of the remote control!
The perfect storm only lasts a few weeks, but the combination of everything all at once is pure bliss. You don't have to settle for just one sport and ESPN will seem like a never ending stream of highlights. Enjoy it while you can and suffer the consequences later.
