The NFL draft is now over and the long summer of unimportant football news coverage has begun. If you see your favorite team or player in the news during June or July, it is usually not a good thing. Most likely they have gotten into some legal trouble or done something pretty dumb in the off season.
There are ways for you to overcome the absence of NFL action and news in these summer months. You could plan out you fantasy team daily for a couple of months. That would make you well prepared and possibly a fantasy league psycho. You could set your calendar around the NFL schedule for the upcoming season. That way you can pre plan excuses for not going to weddings, family functions, and make doctor appointments for sick days to be used at work after a late Sunday night game. Another activity to keep you busy is getting up to speed on your NFL trivia. It is not good to be a know-it-all in most areas of life…except when it comes to football. Use these summer months to sharpen your knowledge of the NFL historically, and be the go to guy at the bar for trivia night.
