Hat? Check. Seven-layer dip? Check. Cold drinks? Check. Remote? Check. Football season? That’s a negative.

As much as it pains most football fans, or any other diehard sports fan for that matter, there comes a time when the most popular national game no longer plays on television; a gap in broadcasting during the off-season. Granted, the actual duration of this time period only lasts for a couple of months, before the NFL draft and preseason coverage begin to kick off. But while in that temporary hiatus, that limbo type of state, home team fanatics have a really hard time coping

Luckily, with satellite TV and the slew of HD channels available, hard-core football fans are finding the off-season to be as good as any regular, August to January season. The off season is no longer seen as the season of boredom until the first kick off commences; now it is seen as the time for preparation and anticipation.

Although most football fans utilize their NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions to the max during the high points of the playoff season, watching multiple games at the same time, there is unfortunately nothing really broadcasted once the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl pass. But with the DVR feature, fans can record and replay any games they may have missed. In fact, many fanatics have been known to get together during the off season, bring all the fixings of a normal football, Sunday afternoon – such as the beverages and the snacks – and sit in front of the big screen television to watch and analyze those crucial and memorable games of the prior season. Not only is it a great way to get pumped up for the beginning of next season (most people find themselves renewing ufabet เข้าสู่ระบบทางเข้า their subscription to the football service months before the season begins), but it is also a fantastic way to keep that Sunday tradition going. Besides, tuning in to last year’s action is a great way to compile the ultimate fantasy football team, getting a leg up on the upcoming competition.

At the same time, with ESPN and a slew of movie channels, diehard fans can mix up that off-season Sunday tradition to watch current football analysis on “Sports Center,” or one of the numerous football movies currently making the rounds on television. With such films as “The Blind Side,” “Friday Night Lights,” “The Replacements” and “Any Given Sunday” constantly playing on pay per view, HBO and Cinemax, fans can get together and temporarily turn football Sunday into football movie Sunday. Additionally, with ESPN Classic occasionally playing old, legendary games from the 1970s and 1980s, diehard fans can catch the career highlights of some of the football greats, like Joe Namath, John Elway and Lawrence Taylor.
