This is one of my favorite times of the year.  We have playoff baseball, college football is getting really interesting, the NFL is starting to shake out, the chase is on, hockey is starting and basketball is just around the corner.  Unfortunately so is the election.

What happened to us? We used to debate every snap, every game of every series, every move in the polls.  Now we are up to our ears in voting records, debates and left vs. right.  I want my sports haven back.  The real world sucks, most minds are made up so shut up already!
I am as guilty as anyone for having my threads that become more of a personal meeting place to catch up with friends, I am also guilty of liking the off topic goofy threads.  I am not guilty of flooding the boards with my personal likes and dislikes and trying to goad fellow posters into fights.

I want my sports site back!!!

I think the recent stock market decline has a lot of us concerned as we see our hard earned 401K money and other investments shrinking as fast as a rock in water.  I know for the sake of my marriage I don't talk politics or even much about finances at home (my wife is a democrat and I'm a republican), and sometimes I use this board to converse with people on that subject that will listen.  Some agree and others don't but at least noone can throw a frying pan at me. 

But your right Red, this site should be a haven to escape from the trials and tribulations of real life.  At least it should get better after the election in 4 weeks.  Thanks for the reminder.

Ok. Done.

I know this isn't your favorite college football team, but How 'Bout Those Washington Huskies?
ARI 48 WAS 14

Go Wildcats!

You should come hang out on the game threads. All sports no politics.
