Christmas Day is about spending time with family, giving and receiving of gifts, enjoying a great home-cooked meal and just sitting back to relax. Well, as a sports junkie, when I sit back to relax I enjoy flipping on the tube and finding a game of any sort on. However, when I was flipping the channels on both Christmas Day and Christmas Eve there was very little in terms of sports to choose from. To sit down and watch three consecutive NBA games takes a lot, but I did it other than dozing off for a few for a brief nap during the end of the boring Cavs-Heat game and the start of the Lakers-Suns game. Then to cap off the evening with a Blazers-Sonics game that was supposed to pit the top two picks against one another when the schedule was announced also left a little bit to be desired. I understand professional athletes have families too and there are other logistics, but would it be too much to put some kind of football game on. There used to be the Blue-Gray Game and the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Day. Now, as I sit here writing this it's late afternoon on Wednesday and the high school sports scene doesn't resume until Thursday, which is another bitter pill to swallow.
While speaking of sports on television, the NFL deserves major kudos for making the move to make the Patriots-Giants game available for everyone in the country. This game deserves to be seen by everyone. As for that lame Texans-Broncos game on two Thursdays ago, keep it on the NFL Network. However, could this signal the beginning of the end of the NFL Network. I don't think so, but if the league is going to given in to crafty politicians, then who knows. Anyway, at least everyone will get to see the high-powered Patriots make a run at history.
