How To Watch Sports On Valentine's Day

Well...a good place to start is to have someone in your life that is a sports fan. I am one of the lucky ones that have that luxury! Woohoo! There are some compelling reasons to skip the expensive, over-produced hype and enjoy sports with the one you love:

1. It is NBA All-Star Weekend! Now really, they must have realized that they planned this on Valentine's Day weekend. Was it to give the lonely or single folks something to do? I vote it was to give us sports nuts something to enjoy together as opposed to watching some sappy romantic comedy that will only cause us to want our 90 minutes back.

2. College Hoops! There are more college basketball games today than you can shake a stick at!

3. Hockey Galore! There are nine NHL games going on today.

4. Snow! If you're here in California then you know we just got more snow and it just so happens to be mostly clear today. What a perfect time to hit the slopes on a board or skis!

5. Soccer! There's one little Premier League game today with Portsmouth vs. Manchester City. In addition, there are a boatload of Serie A, Scottish, and other European games today.

Need I go on? Just because today is Valentine's Day it doesn't mean you have to give up on sports! I'll probably go have a hike myself with the hubby and my big, silly dog.

What are you doing today?

Well we didn't actually watch sports on tv, but we rented the documentary Ultramarathon man about Dean Karnazes who ran 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days. It was very inspiring, obviously, and much better than a romantic comedy.

Nice! That sounds like my kind of movie!
