Twenty-eight days of nothing.
The month of February used to be derided by sports pundits, using the above statement to point out: a) it is the shortest month and b) it contained nothing of value sports-wise.
As a guy who tries his best to be pundity about sports, that hurt, since I was born in February.
Until recently, such disparagement was deserved. After all, February had no baseball, no football, no college basketball tournaments and no NBA or NHL playoffs.
