George Bremer: Enjoy your summer break

(Continued)

But, mostly, it’s the time of year when a fan can enjoy the simpler aspects of the sporting life.

Now’s the time to find a ballpark and a seat in the bleachers not to obsess over the final score but to enjoy the weather. It’s the time to head over to Anderson University and watch a few matches in the Community Hospital Anderson Tennis Classic, a tournament that’s less about competition and more about celebrating the sport it represents.

If you’re a high school or college athlete, it’s the time to put in that extra hour in the weight room preparing for a grueling season ahead.

Now’s the time to dream of what the rest of the sports year could bring. Cold, hard reality will return soon enough.

There will be plenty of time for heated debates, scoreboard watching and nail-biting finishes in the weeks ahead.

Until then, however, enjoy the break.

Poll

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
