Is it time for football yet? What about now? Man, every time I come on to do the Nuggets I just get very, very frustrated. I get through them quickly because I just want ... this whole process to go quickly. Paying attention to all these other sports - as in writing about them on the news desk - is actually making all of this feel slower. Past offseasons I wasn't really working the SB Nation news desk or SB Nation Bay Area that much, so I kind of just got away from sports while football was away and the time passed quickly. Now, writing about the NBA draft and things like that, all I can think about is how far away football is. At least I have the SaberCats, I guess. Onto the links.
