I was talking with Stevie P, our 97.3 The Dawg sports guy and host of Thinking Out Loud on ESPN 1420 the other day. We were talking about sports, or the lack of sports to talk about. Professional baseball certainly has its fans but most people around here are fans, not fanatics. Throw in the fact that the closest to home Houston Astros are playing like a Double-A team and baseball slips a little further out of mind.
What about the Saints and the NFL? This should be the time of year when rabid fans are chomping at the bit to see recent draft picks and free agents getting signed and getting ready for training camp. With the current labor dispute we might not see those signings and training camps until much later unless of course the rumour mill is to be believed.
