Let's Make a Date

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

I'm sure I'm not the only D-League fan who doubles as an NFL fan (Go Raiders!) Anyway, if you're like me, you're ready to put the Vick and Favre stories aside and watch some real football or at least some fantasy football. In any case, the offseason/preseason seems to drag on forever.

Unfortunately, it's not much better for the D-League where the media coverage is a fraction of a fraction of what the NFL gets. The offseason/preseason is still filled with dead spots and waiting for the games. The good news is that we're three months and a day away from tipoff of the 2009-10 D-League season. The bad news is that we're still three months and a day away from tipoff of the 2009-10 D-League season.

So, here's a few things to look forward to in the coming months, free agent tryouts around the league. These were all the dates/teams that I saw listed on their official sites. If anyone knows other teams' dates, feel free to chime in.
