They were talking about this on the Afternoon Saloon here in Chicago today. Is this the best time of the year for sports fans?

Hockey and basketball and getting into the prime of the playoffs races.

Baseball spring training is in full swing and opening day is looming on the horizon

NFL draft is coming up very soon

All four of the main American sports have big things going on right now. The only other time they talked about comparing to it is September/Early October, but I gotta disagree since the NBA preseason hasn't started by that point, or is just barely starting.

Yes it is.  And u are forgetting the greatest part of it all, March Madness!

BTW Mild, join our pool in the general nba section.  In fact, anybody who hasn't signed up, join.

Yeah, I can't believe I forgot about March Madness, which was one of the main reasons I posted this topic.

Another time that came up from one of my friends, which I don't agree with, and neither do they, but deserves consideration is late December.

It's bowl season for college football

The NBA and NHL seasons are not only in full swing, but things are really starting to take shape

Baseball winter meetings, the biggest part of the free agent season

NFL's late season playoff push for many teams

I gotta give props to that as well.

I hate Bowls, you will never have a year where teams don't get ripped or lucky in the selection.

Is it just me(hopefully not) or is the NFL draft the most exiting draft in all sports?  Its so fun to see where all your favorite college players end up and when its your team's turn to draft, boy is it suspenseful.

I find the NBA draft to be much more exciting.

agreed.  I'll admit I watch the NFL Draft but it's such a crapshoot.  U never know who's gonna be good or a bust.  NBA u get a much better idea of who u want and who u dont.

Past the first round the NFL Draft is a drag, and lasts wayyy too long!

I also don't like the first round of the NFL draft because they give them entirely too much time to pick.
