There are no sports today

Quick, Big Picture loyalists: There are two days every year that never have any major sporting events slated on the calendar. Name ‘em.

[Silence. Mumbling. More silence]

If you said today and Monday (the day before and the day after the MLB All-Star Game), Zach owes you a moderate-to-bad reach-around when he gets back tomorrow.*

Call bullshit on that, we dare you. And please, take either angle you like. Think there is a sporting event today? Think there is another day during the year without a sporting event? Let us have it in the comments.

Oh, and don’t even try the AAA All-Star Game or Tour de France. We’re not gonna buy that shit.

Whatcha got? Bring it mother fuckers.

*Zach is not contractually obligated to follow through with this. The reach-around might be good.

  1. I read that in Maxim a few years ago that the only two days in which there are no MLB, NFL, NHL, or NBA games are the day before and after the MLB All-Star game….

  2. Minor point of clarification – Monday and today are the only two days each year *guaranteed* to have no major action…there were two dates earlier this year (January? February?) in the middle of the week where there were no NHL or NBA games, with no NFL and before MLB.

    Days like today are the worst of the year, even worse than the day after the Super Bowl.

  3. Ahhhh, I’ve won quite a few beer bets using that exact same trivia question. It’s a staple question in my “I’m broke and I need someone to buy me a beer” list.

  4. U-20 World Cup, round of 16. USA (a.k.a. your country v. Uruguay.

  5. Come on Anon, that doesnt count!

  6. It does count, after the thrilling victory over Brazil of all countries. These youngins are good, and in 3 years, you can’t deny that you’ll be a fairweather US Soccer fan during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa…

  7. @rstiles, Kevin and gmoney:

    Glad you guys heard that same trivia question — it’s a good one.

    @anonymous 10:41

    We’re with you on the U-20 game!

  8. As a Brit, I’ve got to agree, over here there is nothing either – no football, cricket, rugby, golf, even the tennis is something called the Swiss open…
    Currently Sky Sports are showing beach cricket, equestrain, obscure rugby and charity golf, I’m waiting to see what watersports world has on offer (note: that is on Sky Sports, not anything adult, honest).
