Friday Flakes: Our Summer is Almost Over

New, 22 comments

The end is near

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

From reading the comments on previous flakes I have taken that a lot of our readers or more importantly commentators do not enjoy summer that much. Well, take solace in the fact that fall and all that comes with it are right around the corner.

Fall camp is now open to all fall sports across the country. The NFL preseason is has now started for those of you who follow that. Also, baseball is in a period where what a team does will actually matter in the post season race.

So with that said, take a deep breath and get ready for the onslaught of 247 sports enjoyment that will take us through the spring.

Also, Nate is fixing tires somewhere in rural Georgia right now so that is why he passed his flakes duties on to me this morning. My apologies for having to read my dribble.

Anyway, on to flakes...
