Television Options – Until College Football Starts

soccer images-12PGA.-LOGO-2342px-Major_League_Lacrosse_logo.svgGood afternoon, college football fans. If you’re like me, you’re thinking to yourself, “How can I make it until college football starts?” While nothing can replace college football, we have a few options for you, including Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the Canadian Football League (CFL), the Professional Golf Association (PGA), and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).  Please note that for you baseball fans, we haven’t listed those options here because baseball is on television everywhere in the summer.  Also, please note – there are also several preseason NFL football games, but they are not listed below – as there are very few national games (many, for example, are on your local Comcast television cable network)

This schedule below might keep your pulse going at a normal level – until college football starts 😉
