|Isn't it sad?|
So as must of you know college bowl season started a few days ago but I have one issue with it. No, this won't be about the stupid BCS and how their should be a playoff made. This is about the time they take off between games! If your college team is lucky enough to make it to a BCS bowl or a good bowl you will have to wait nearly a month to see them play again. Yes, I am saying from the last regular season game until their next is usually between 3-4 weeks! I am a huge fan of University of Arizona and their last regular season game was on December 2nd, their bowl game (which isn't even that great of a bowl) is December 29th! You are telling me I need to wait 4 weeks to see them play! You can say that the college wants the kids to get a winter break but I will tell you that is BS. They just want to capitalize on cash. College basketball players don't get winter or spring break off but the football players do? For the big bowl games on New Years and all I would rather spend the time with family and friends and not worrying who won (which I do because I am a sports fan) so give them a week off and then play ball. I think they would all also rather be home for New Years with their family and friends. Instead they are placed all over to play a game they can't get paid for until them make it to the pros (and if they make it). These players aren't even allowed to trade autographs for tattoos but we want them to give up their New Years so their schools can cash in millions of dollars while they risk their well being. So ask yourself what are people really out for? is money that powerful?
Advice: Don't force things in life, because at the end of the day it will only make things worse. Enjoy what you have and not what you don't. We get a fixed amount of time on this earth so use it wisely and spend it with people that want to spend the time with you to!
Have a great weekend!
