I've always maintained that July was the worst month of the calender for sports fans. Yeah, you got some Golf, the Tour De France and the Baseball All-Star Game, but not much else.

Football simply can't come soon enough for me!
College football Saturdays, NFL on Sundays, Monday Night Football, Thursday football... :heat:

Here are some preseason forecasts to look over.

I'll follow the NFL without any rooting interest this year, makes it easier that way. :D College Football I'm looking forward to the usual big games, Army-Navy, Michigan-Ohio State, Texas-Oklahoma. And locally, Colorado-Nebraska.

A source close to the situation confirmed to ESPN.com Friday that Army and Notre Dame will play the first football game at the new Yankee Stadium in 2010.
Army issued a release Friday afternoon touting a "major college football announcement" Monday at the stadium. The announcement will be a game against the Fighting Irish, said the source, renewing a once-vibrant New York City tradition.
Notre Dame senior associate athletic director John Heisler could not confirm that the game is a go, but did not dispute it, either.
"We've talked for some time about our interest in playing in Yankee Stadium, and Yankee Stadium has expressed an interesting in having us play there," Heisler said. "We're very close to having something happen."
Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick told the Associated Press the negotiations were far along, but would not acknowledge a completed deal. He said such a matchup would be a home game for the Fighting Irish, meaning it would be broadcast on NBC.
"There are still things to be resolved," Swarbrick said.
Notre Dame still has two dates not scheduled for next year, including one home game.
Army and Notre Dame played each other at Yankee Stadium annually from 1925-46, with one of the two schools being ranked No. 1 each of the last four meetings at the famed baseball park. The most famous of those games probably was the 0-0 tie in 1946, when Army was ranked No. 1 and Notre Dame No. 2. The two teams last met at Yankee Stadium in 1969.
The Times Herald-Record, citing unidentified Army sources, said Friday that Army will also play games at Yankee Stadium in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons.

I'm definitely looking forward to NFL time!!! I just wish my tickets would get here already.

I think the time between the end of March Madness and baseball opening day is the most boring time in sports.
