I love this time of year in sports. The high school teams are nearing the end of their seasons and fighting for state titles. Major League Baseball is back, and all teams pursue dreams of a World Series title. The NBA is heading toward the playoffs (and my San Antonio Spurs will be fighting for their lives to repeat as champs). And I can’t forget The Masters! I love football, but April is pretty good for me as a sports fan. What is your favorite sport to watch?
