Blog: Spring Sports Fling

Posted: Updated:
The azaleas of Augusta are in full bloom. The aroma of hotdogs fills a spring breeze in baseball stadiums across the country. The smoke is still fresh from Kevin Harvick’s burnout after winning the Southern 500 in Darlington, South Carolina. And Twitter is still recovering from Nebraska’s Bo Pelini bringing a cat with him to the Cornhuskers spring game.

It’s the beauty of sports during the spring.

Whether it’s fresh cut grass, or the warmth of a spring afternoon, there is just something about sports in the middle of spring. It’s relaxing, laidback, and peaceful.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot on the line today at Augusta, and roar of the Sunday crowd will be proof of that. But golf, the opening of the baseball season, and spring football are no match for the intensity of the fall football season.

Soon the summer sun will be too much, the baseball season will become too long, and preseason football magazines will fill the shelves at the local book store. But for now, take it all in, enjoy this special time of the year…this spring sports fling.
