tough night for sports junkies

Tonight and Wednesday night will be tough sledding for many. The days before and after the all star game are, to use the theater term, dark. Baseball is on vacation, basketball in the off season, football three weeks away from training camp, not a year for the world cup, Wimbledon is over, hockey months away from the first goal---this is murder for sports fans.

A constitutional morning step for the sports fan is to check what might be on the tube during the evening that can satisfy their fan jones. Today, such fans skimmed this listing, and took a deep breath. The only balm in the Globe consisted of a series of minor league baseball games that will be aired on small power radio stations.

Probably a good night to exercise, or see a movie, or read a book, or sleep early. Even the all star game itself, tomorrow night, does not provide much relief. It is an exhibition with the hype that the game decides home field advantage in the World Series.

Long week.
