Training camp is in full swing for the teams in the NFL which means the start of football is only about a month away. I enjoyed the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, the huge win in the Stanley Cup finals for our Blackhawks and certainly the great performance by our women in winning soccer’s World Cup. However football is the end all be all for me in terms of sports.
I love the college game but as regular readers here know I am a lifelong and diehard fan of the America’s team, the Green Bay Packers. Let’s hope the defense holds up this season and they can shake off their collapse in the NFC title game and go on to return the Lombardi Trophy to its rightful home.
