October Is Great for Sports Fans

When you think about October, most people immediately turn their minds to Halloween.  Considering every store ad is advertising candy and costumes, it’s hard to think otherwise.  Turn on the television, however, and you will discover something even more important about October.  It is one of the best months of the year to be a sports fan.

As you know, every professional sport has a specific season.  Baseball season starts in the spring whereas football, basketball, and hockey start in the fall.  The month when all four sports come together is October.  Baseball is wrapping up its season with the World Series which starts tonight between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.  Preseason is underway in the NBA and the regular season tips off on October 29th.  We are in week 8 of the NFL season and week 4 of the NHL season.  Add NASCAR and Major League Soccer to the mix and you could spend hours switching from one sporting event to the next.

In case you need something to browse during the commercials, check out some new and upcoming sports titles from the library.
