Watch hockey for once? That'd be awesome.

well... if the doomsday scenario were to happen, baseball runs through the end of october, and then college basketball season kicks off, mixed in with college football bowl season.

so there will be plenty of options available. turning to hockey won't be necessary, thank god.


i highly doubt the NBA will go out... the players union is notoriously weak.

I'm really happy about the potential for an NBA lockout because fuck the NBA.

And hey, if it benefits baseball, I'm cool with it.

How could it really benefit baseball if baseball is a summer sport?

Well I guess but I mean the end of baseball > the start of basketball anyways, no?

What I could really see is if a full NBA season isn't played a real hunger for sports could make people anticipate the start of the following baseball season even more.

Doesn't the beginning of the season line up with Finals too? (Looking ahead a year of course).

While Nascar, MLS, strong man competition and poker ratings may climb if both the NFL and NBA were to skip a season, the NHL's ratings would in all likelihood continue to plummet in the U.S.

As the NBA season generally starts around the time of the World Series (opening night this past season was Oct 26th), I don't think September and October baseball would get any boost from a lack of non-existent NBA games.

You can see where I might have thought otherwise, no?

Yes, I should not post right after waking up. I might as well be drunk when I try to be coherent in the morning.
