The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching — and, no, it's not the winter holiday season. For sports fans, it's the late summer/early fall. Think about it: baseball is in the midst of pennant races, leading into the playoffs and World Series; the US Open tennis championships are in full swing for 16 days; college football kicks off; and the NFL, already in pre-season, launches into its regular-season games. And, for soccer enthusiasts, the English Premier League is up and running, as well. There is so much to enjoy now and look forward to.
