The summer is unofficially about to get underway this weekend as Memorial Day weekend is at hand. Summer got going for some folks a little earlier than others, but Memorial Day weekend is sort of the unofficial kick-off to the summer. For baseball, MLB standings start to take on a bit more meaning. For football, we are racing along through OTAs and just looked to come out the other end in time for the start of football. We're not quite in the home stretch, but we're picking up steam.
While this weekend will be about beaches, BBQ, baseball and general fun for most people, it's of course worth noting the reason we have Memorial Day. Matt Ufford and SB Nation Studios put together this video of some folks (including Matt), who served in the military. They recall some of their favorite sports memories from when they were deployed. Give it a look when you get a minute.
