    The Doldrums

    Well, it's here. No football. AARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

    Nothing but the minor sports. It will pick up in mid-March, and baseball will help, but still, no footbal sucks.

    I always thought The Doldrums were when you got caught with no wind in the intertropical convergence zone.

    Were you a USFL fan, for spring ball? Trump got away Scott free during the campaign for his rill in destroying the USFL and playing in the spring which was starting to take off when he decided he just had to sue the NFL.

    And won.

    It is a nautical term, and I experienced that while sailing a sail boat with NO motor a few times. Gets boring just drifting. Doesn't have to be in any specific area, though, and explains a lot of different doldrums we experience, such as no football.

    Not really a fan, but went to games here with the Bandits. I do remember laughing at the attempt to pressure the NFL, and really enjoyed the payment he received. He did destroy the league, but it was their owners money, and they went along with it. That $1 really went a long way.

    Thought you followed the Lightning? Or is that only if and when they are in the playoffs?

    I have since their birth in 1992, and do follow, and attend, Lightning games. It is still a minor sport, but fun to watch.

    Point being it would be up and running today because it had a base and growing number of fans.

    Looking back that far, there may have been an acceptable niche for it to continue, and it could still be around, but on a minor level as well. IMHO, of course.
