OK - techincally - it's actually winter for me down here in New Zealand - but as I spend most of my working day (and night) writing and thinking about European Football and US NFL and NCAA football ... it's still a summer break for me.
The Gooners Guide is a gambling portal - so we do cover Online Casino, Online Poker, and things like Bingo and Backgammon - but that is not my speciality or why I run the website.
For me the passion is about sports, and frankly when you are talking about sports then I mean FOOTBALL ... whether it's European Football ... or the North American variety. I've tried to get into Baseball, basketball, ice hockey ... but these sports just do not do it for me ... and I've found it best to source in writers who have the passion for sports.
So now that the European season is finished ... and there is no World Cup or European Championships I'm caught here twidling my thumbs a wee bit waiting for the start of the European pre-season in August and the NCAA College Football season in September.
Sure - there is the Copa America in July - but outside of Argentina and Brazil this tournament is actually a bit of a non-event ... so here I am sitting around wondering WTF to do with myself?
I've tried to get enthused in the WSOP in Vegas - but ... am left with meh! 50+ tournaments - usually won be someone you've never heard of ... and if you do follow the WSOP online then you render all the TV coverage of it on ESPN pointless - as you already know who has won ...
So - what do YOU do to pass the time in the off-season? How do you handle the break?
Suspended animation? Drinking Binges?
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
