We are fast approaching my absolute time of the year; autumn. The reason autumn is my favorite time of the year is mostly centered around the sports world. Baseball is winding down and the Red Sox are usually in the middle of their annual end of season slide. College football and the NFL get underway. Soccer season (in Europe) gets started. The NBA and the NHL get started. Yes my friends, autumn is a virtual cornucopia of sports.
With this in mind I've decided to shake things up a bit and do some sports blogging for the next month or so. I'll write about whatever occurs to me at that moment but anyone is welcome to make suggestions. For those who dislike sports, take cheer, there may be a non-sports post thrown in occasionally if the opportunity presents itself. Barring that, Rik's Blog is going to an all-sports format for the next month or so.
Lastly, as an added bonus, Gino will also be participating. Expect to see him making rebuttals or counterpoints to some of my posts. I've also told him that he is welcome to submit guest entries that I will post for him and knowing Gino, he will take full advantage of the soapbox that I am providing for him but I'll warn you - he's a Philly sports fan so his posts may be a little rough around the edges!
With that in mind...this would be an ideal place to use the "Gentlemen start your engines" line but I hate NASCAR so I'll just say let's get rrrrrrrrrrready to rrrrrrumble...
