The NBA cancelling the first two weeks, and likely more, only effects the people who count on money from those Home Games in NBA Cities. In terms of my interest, I’ll mainly miss the commentary of the TNT Studio Analysts more than the games themselves. I personally believe the NBA should lower the amount of Regular Season games to strengthen their product. The NBA has a bad stigma of the first three quarters of a Regular Season Game being meaningless with most players going at about 75% speed. If games mean more, your product strengthens and the revenue should rise. Just my thoughts.
Tim Tebow being announced as the starter for the Broncos is all over the proverbial Sports World. I’ve been a card carrying member of his Fan Club for awhile but even I don’t think it deserves as much air time in their off week. Let’s take a step back on the Tebow talk for a week.
The MLB Playoffs are supposedly a huge success thus far. I’ve been half watching…if I miss a game, what am I really missing? I can catch the 4 highlights of each game on Sports Center anyway. I’ll openly say I’m a fair weather baseball fan…like I’ll watch when there is fairly bad weather out and I’m too lazy to get up and get the remote. What’s up with the glass of water to the face on that walk off HR?
It’s fall and that means one thing…it’s time for over priced seasonal beers to get into full swing. Some of the Fall or Pumpkin Seasonal Beers are simply awesome…but it’s hard to get excited when you’re shelling out 10-12 bucks for a 6 pack. A beer I’d suggest buying if you don’t get screwed on price is the Pumpkin Ale from Williamsburg AleWerks. Beer Advocate has it rated as an A-, which is huge on that site considering how High Nose those people are on their beer.
