According to a recent Harris poll, baseball is the second most popular sport in the country behind football. A distant second, but still second. That’s not all that surprising, but what is surprising is that college football is in third place and isn’t far behind baseball at all. There’s a chance it could jump into second with baseball falling into third in the not-too-distant future, but I’ll have to see it to believe it. Baseball is in great shape right now and the creation of the second wildcard should increase interest since more teams will have a shot at the postseason. Then again, college football is implementing a four-team playoff tournament in 2014. Who knows.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Nets are playing tonight and that’s pretty much it as far as local sports go, but don’t worry, hockey will be back in less than two weeks. Talk about whatever you like here. Enjoy.
