Golden Nuggets: Leap Year Gets Us Closer To Free Agency

Hope you enjoyed your once every four years February 29 yesterday. Leap year generally just reminds me again of the Olympics and presidential campaigns. Exciting stuff I realize. It also is one more day towards free agency and the NFL Draft. Free agency gets going on March 13 at I believe 1:00pm PT.

It's kind of nice to not have to deal with free agency starting at 9:00pm PT anymore. Who wants to be staying up that late waiting for breaking news? If nothing's going to happen, I'd rather it be when I am moderately coherent. Last July when free agency got going it was a case of hurry up and wait. I remember sitting and watching NFL Network for days on end and nothing was happening. That might have been more exhausting than if there had been a ton of news. I guess we'll just have to wait and see once again on that.

One last note. The SB Nation YouTube channel launches today, which is a pretty big deal for the network. Taking that step into video is a big step forward.
