    What is the best week of the sporting year? *Some would say Super Bowl week, others late October and*the*World Series. *There are numerous acceptable answers; personally, I'm all over the Tournament's first week in March.

    Regardless of your personal sporting preference, however, there can be no debate over what is the worst week on the sporting calendar. *This very week, centered around Baseball's All-Star break, leaves American sport fans without any*contests*of consequence at the height of summer. *The paucity of competition is so heinous that it drives many to trick themselves into caring about meaningless media side-shows like the God-forsaken Home Run Derby. *Let me say that again, people willingly*tune into a schlock-fest featuring Chris Berman. *That borders on a war crime!

    Not satisfied with the misery already laid*upon*the American public, MLB has outdone themselves by allowing the typically 3-day break to balloon into a fourth evening. *You'd think that, by now, I'd learn to anticipate this garbage, and schedule a much deserved vacation...

    At least there's the latest edition of Thorburn's freshman interview series to occupy my attention for a while.

    Today in the bag I'll be talking about the brewing QB battle set for CU's fall camp,*baseball's first half, and almost-history from the world of tennis.
