In no particular order:
Tour de France. (cycling)
The British Open (or more correctly, The Open). (golf)
The European Championships. (football/soccer)
The NBA Finals. (basketball)
The NHL Finals. (ice hockey)
The Olympics. (multiple sports)
Copa América. (football/soccer)
MLB All-Star Game (OK, this might be stretching it a bit…) (baseball)
And thanks to my work schedule, my TV remote control has never gotten such a workout.
If I had to pick the event I am most excited about, it is probably the swimming events at the Olympics. As a former competitive swimmer, it’s easier to fantasize that it’s me going for the gold medal. For some reason, I have trouble picturing myself going in for a dunk against Giannis…
My least favorite would probably be the NHL Finals. But if the Philadelphia Flyers were in the finals, it might be a different story. But even when they are not, there’s still a good chance I’ll catch some of the action.
So what a month.
One more, or in this case, nine more, reasons to love Summer…
