Looking to the Week Ahead

As the summer rolls along, we move into sports limbo, a time between meaningful and entertaining sporting events. With the NBA and NHL seasons behind us, and the NBA summer league reaching it's conclusion, we have to wait another 3 months to see the season start. The NFL is a month and a half away from kicking off the season. Now that the British Open and Wimbledon are completed, there isn't much to look forward to in terms of classy sports until the PGA championship or US open, but those aren't until August. So here's all I could find to watch for in the upcoming week:

Cardinals vs. Phillies / Braves vs. Padres
These are some mid-season match ups that we could be seeing again come October. There is a pretty good chance that at least 3 of these teams will be representing the NL in the postseason. These series could give us some insight on who should be the favorite, and how these teams match up with one another.

NFL Camps Start
This week, starting on the 23rd, the Browns, Cowboys, Chargers, Patriots, Ravens, and Broncos will begin their quest for Super Bowl rings as preseason camps finally begin. Everyone else starts next week. This is an exciting time for Football fans, because it gives us a chance to see our teams, and what they could become. There is hope for all, because at this juncture, anything is possible.

Tour de France
It's happening. I heard Lance Armstrong was in it again.

And that's all I got.
