Open Thread: No More Football But That Doesn't Mean No More Sports

We may not be able to watch football anymore but that doesn't mean that there aren't any more area sports teams that aren't playing.

If you're a basketball fan, there are some good college basketball games being played throughout the day, including UConn-Syracuse, Baylor-Mizzouri, Virginia-UNC, Louisville-West Virginia, Ohio State-Michigan State, Kentucky-Vanderbilt and Duke-Maryland.

And of course the University of Cincinnati takes on Marquette at 3 p.m. ET (ESPNU), and Xavier plays Temple at 9 p.m. (ESPN2).

How about NBA? The Cleveland Cavaliers host the Sixers tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Then there's the NHL. The Columbus Blue Jackets face the Minnesota Wild tonight on the road at 8 p.m. and of course, my favorite hockey team, the Buffalo Sabres host the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight at 7 p.m.

These lesser sports may not satisfy you the way football, specifically Bengals football, does, but they can at least get you by until free agency and the draft kick off.

So, what will you be watching tonight?
