There are no sports today

Quick, Big Picture loyalists: There are two days every year that never have any major sporting events slated on the calendar. Name ‘em.

[Silence. Mumbling. More silence]

If you said today and Monday (the day before and the day after the MLB All-Star Game), TBP owes you a moderate-to-bad reach-around when he gets back tomorrow.*

Call bullshit on that, we dare you. And please, take either angle you like. Think there is a sporting event today? Think there is another day during the year without a sporting event? Let us have it in the comments.

Oh, and don’t even try the AAA All-Star Game or Tour de France. We’re not gonna buy that shit.

Whatcha got? Bring it mother fuckers.

*TBP is not contractually obligated to follow through with this. The reach-around might be good.

I read that in Maxim a few years ago that the only two days in which there are no MLB, NFL, NHL, or NBA games are the day before and after the MLB All-Star game....

Kevin said...

Minor point of clarification - Monday and today are the only two days each year *guaranteed* to have no major action...there were two dates earlier this year (January? February?) in the middle of the week where there were no NHL or NBA games, with no NFL and before MLB.

Days like today are the worst of the year, even worse than the day after the Super Bowl.

Ahhhh, I've won quite a few beer bets using that exact same trivia question. It's a staple question in my "I'm broke and I need someone to buy me a beer" list.

It does count, after the thrilling victory over Brazil of all countries. These youngins are good, and in 3 years, you can't deny that you'll be a fairweather US Soccer fan during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa...

@rstiles, Kevin and gmoney:

Glad you guys heard that same trivia question -- it's a good one.

We're with you on the U-20 game!

As a Brit, I've got to agree, over here there is nothing either - no football, cricket, rugby, golf, even the tennis is something called the Swiss open...
Currently Sky Sports are showing beach cricket, equestrain, obscure rugby and charity golf, I'm waiting to see what watersports world has on offer (note: that is on Sky Sports, not anything adult, honest).

SOCCER DOES NOT EQUAL A SPORT.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last week I discovered this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Playstation tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Football game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
