A day without sports

Today is one of those rare days where there are no games in the NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB (obviously). We donít see this often, itís usually the days that bookend the MLB all star game in July although the Tour De France is usually going on.

In fact, except for one ESPN bowl, thereís nothing at all since college hoops is also shut down. This may be the slowest day in sports in quite a while. Rich Hill getting arrested at the Patriots game is still the top trending story on Twitter to tell you how slow things are.

My fantasy football team is having their championship parade today, if that counts for anything.

I saw part of it. It was a good game even though I didn't care about either team.

Unless it falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday there will be an NFL game. I'm not sure why there were no NBA or NHL games.
