We have reached the dog days of summer where honey to do list are a mile long and a mile deep. With well over two months until College Football, fans across the country are longing for the first full Saturday of College Football. With media days coming up in late July the buzz around the upcoming will be in full swing.
Few have often wondered what to do during the dark days of summer and this article will hopefully shine the light on what to do with your time during the hot summer months. Without further ado here are five things to keep you from going crazy during the last two months without football.
1st. Master your tailgating skills. Why? Because who likes a sloppy tailgater on any given Saturday? The summer is prime time to hone in on your tailgating skills and perfecting the perfect tailgate for those important gamedays.
2nd. Get that honey to do list complete! Nobody wants to be cooped up inside when all your buddies are at the big game. So guys get off the couch and do what your wife or girlfriend tell ya to do, so you can be left alone during football season.
3rd. Go to a baseball game. Who doesn’t enjoy America’s pastime? Grab your buddies and make your way to the closest ballpark, grab yourself a hot dog, sit in the cheap seats and refresh with your beverage of choice and sit back and enjoy a high flying baseball game. From dollar, Tuesday, where hot dogs and tickets are a dollar, to all you can eat Thursdays a night at the ballpark, is the perfect remedy for the College Football blues.
4th. Go on a road trip or vacation. Take that road trip you saw on Facebook, and enjoy not being stressed while you’re on the way to a location. From camping, finding cool swimming holes, to flat out trying out places you saw on your late night binge of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Go for it because fall comes around you’re going to be focused in on your respected team and rival.
5th. Read all the preseason magazines, watch old games, and listen to Paul Finebaum. This one is last because it’s almost a no-brainer. What’s better than Paul Finebaum, old games, and preseason chatter? If you’re like any normal College Football fan this last idea will come very naturally unless you’re the crazy fan who calls into your local sports radio show just yelling at your rival school. Once you read all the hype formulate how you reasonably think your team will fare in the upcoming season. Relive the past year with your DVR full of games in which you screamed and or celebrated.
College Football fans hang in there because Football will be back before you know it. Enjoy media days, road trips, and all the craziness of the offseason.
