I do not plagiarize. I do not take undo credit. Therefore, in the spirit of full disclosure, this post was totally inspired by Steve Rushin's column in SI.com. Here it is.
In any normal year, let's just face it, as far as sports go: August sucks. Living in Texas with the oppressive heat, lack of rain and threat of hurricanes (pretty ironic): August sucks.
OK, so August has its good points. The pennant races are heating up in MLB. And.............I've got nothing.
Wait, college football - real games - actually starts before the month ends. There's that.
We'll try to come up with something tomorrow. Chances are it won't be sports related.
