Happy Labor Day And The Top 10 Sportiest American Holidays

   One of the best things about being a sportswriter? Getting paid to go to games.
   One of the worst things about being a sportswriter? Working on holidays.
   Not that I'm complaining. I've got lots of media friends who are without full-time jobs, and there's nothing more stressful than trying to patch together a paycheck in this economic climate.
   I cherish my gigs, from blogger (DFWSportatorium) to pizza proprietor (Pizza Buzz) to TV yapper (NBC 5). Just, um, a little less on days like this, Labor Day.
   While friends are at the lake, having a pool party and just chllin' in the rain, I'll be slaving away today here in my lil' corner of the blogosphere, over at NBC 5's Blue Star Blog and with a couple of Pizza Buzz-related chores. Just as later this season when I'll - thanks to the Cowboys - "work" on Thanksgiving for the umpteeth consecutive year.
   Again, I'm not complaining (too loudly). The Cowboys are working today at Valley Ranch getting ready for the Giants, the Rangers are working this afternoon to hold off the A's in Oakland and tennis' U.S. Open is working to keep our attention despite no American men in the Round of 16 for the first time since '81. That's 1881.
   So put away the white shorts, fly your flag and celebrate the end of summer with my ranking of the sportiest holidays on our calendar ...

  1. The first weekend in April, lets call it April fools holiday could be a 4b (or possibly a 9b)with baseball opening day and the NCAA Championship game.

    1. You're right, that's a good one. Not a holiday per se, but a great sports day.

  2. I thought your pizza joint was to be open by now.
