It's often said around this time of year. It's been written about time and again. April is the best month on the calendar for sports fans. But how can that be? There's no NFL or college football, the two most popular sports in the country at the moment. Still, for sheer volume of choice and prestige, nothing beats April. Don't believe me? Let's go through a comprehensive list of all of the sports options available during the month of April. But before that, what are some other contenders? And why don't they stack up...
-Well, there is that little game called the Super Bowl. There's also the NBA All-Star Game, regular season NHL action, and plenty of college basketball. The most important NASCAR race of the season, the Daytona 500, also kicks off the stock car season. But, college football has just ended and baseball is still on the horizon. Add in to that the monotony of the long NBA and NHL season settling in, Feburary isn't a well-stocked sports month.
-Well, there's March Madness... duh doy! Championship Week is also an amazing time of year for college basketball. But even though March Madness might be the single best event on the sports calendar, there's not a lot of depth to March. Football is well and truly in the middle of their offseason and the NBA and NHL are winding down to the playoffs. And God have mercy on your soul if you actually sit down and watch 9 innings of Spring Training baseball.
