Summer of Sports (Don Ward)

What a great summer!

No Off Season for Sports

I'm a huge sports fan.  I have been my whole life.  

The boys of summer have always filled the hot months with the American pastime.  My own obsession with baseball has dwindled over the years.  It's such a great game but I'm a casual observer now.

Usually baseball is about it for most of the summer.  Not this year.

In June/July we had the European Championships for soccer (football).  I'm a huge fan of soccer/football.  I know we have MLS here in the summer and I know it's good. I'm just not a fan ....yet.  I love England's Premier League. 

That means I love the competition between nations that is the Euros.  It's great to watch!  

Soon after that ended we got the Olympics!  I only wish I had time to watch as much of the Olympics as I'd like to!  

Now, even before the Games in London are wrapping up...we're back to football, American Football.  The Broncos kick things off on Thursday.  Preseason game #1 can be seen right here on KKTV 11!  Bring it on! 

In just two weeks..the English Premier League is back, then comes college football (American!).

Sports junkies had a hot summer!  Play ball!

We'll talk again soon.
