The greatest time of year
But October, at least to me, is the greatest month on the sports calendar.
It's the only time of the year when you'll have all the major professional sports going at the same time and, down here in the South, have college football.
Consider that on Oct. 1 we'll have a Padres-Rockies game to get into the baseball playoffs. And then a month of playoffs.
We'll also have an NFL Monday night football game if baseball's not your bag.
NBA training camps open this week. College basketball starts practice on Oct. 13.
If hockey's your thing, the NHL season started over the weekend in London and the CHL season is less than three weeks away.
It's hard to get better than this.
