Frosted Flakes: Staggering Sports Seasons

Watching football in May felt good.

On Sunday I watched the FCS football championship. I was cheering on Jill’s Jackrabbits and it felt great to be able to watch some football in May.

While much of everything that has happened due to Covid precautions really stinks. I kind of like the staggered sports seasons. You get a little bit of football in the fall and a little bit in the spring. It has a nice balance to it.

Also, not being much of a basketball watcher, although I watched more last season than I ever had before, I enjoyed having volleyball to look forward to throughout the winter and the first part of the spring.

I know there are many reasons as to why each sport is played when it is and there would probably be logistical nightmares to making the sports season staggered, or having different divisions of the same sports playing at different times through the year, but I can dream.
