Tip-Off for 6/25/12 (featuring Michael Jackson): What do we do now?

Now that the NBA and NHL playoffs are in the books, how will you quench your sports thirst. The baseball season isn’t even half done and we’re a few weeks away until the pads start poppin’  in NFL training camps. Shoot man, the Olympics are even a month away. We do have the final rounds of Euro 2012, the British Open and Wimbledon on the radar.

And of course there’s always Arena League Football.

Have no fear fans, there’s plenty to keep us occupied until the NFL preseason get underway.

  • NBA Draft, Thursday June 28th
  • NBA free agency begins Sunday July 1st
  • NBA rookie summer leagues
  • Arena Football League Playoffs and Arena Bowl
  • The British Open
  • MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City

There’s enough to get us by. One way I pass the time is by watching youth summer league baseball and basketball throughout the city – tons of talent.

And when all else fails there’s the ever-present art of grillin’ – I’ve gotta see what all the fuss is about Mizzo’s jerk wings this summer.
