Percolating. That's how I would describe the sports scene right now. You've got baseball in spring training. You've got football combines, free agency, club releases and more coaching moves in the NFL, with the draft coming in April. You've got college basketball winding down regular season play, with the conference play offs and Selection Sunday coming. Every day there's a small bit of news about something. For example, two teams, San Diego and Philadelphia, cut ties with long time very productive running backs. Spring training has daily reports: from Zack Greinke's teeth to Mike Aviles' elbow to first Cactus League game next week. Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri are all perking along, with Missouri now making a strong case to get into the NCAA Tournament. Vermont hockey may miss the playoffs for the first time since Hockey East was organized, but Vermont hoopsters both male and female are in the thick of the America East races. So rest up now, because between now and April, more then the weather will be warming up!
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
