Ah, opening day is right around the corner. There's no feeling quite like it. But let's take this moment to think - between opening day, the Final Four (which this year falls into April), and the upcoming NBA and NHL playoffs, are we approaching the best time of year, sports-wise?

My personal vote is for Quarter 4. Playoff baseball, the NFL and college football in full swing, and, as gravy, the opening of college and pro hoops all fall in Q4. And if I followed hockey, that would be kicking off too (in fact I hear it still kicks off in Q4 even though I don't follow it).
But that's just me. We want to hear from you. And don't just vote - let us know your specific thoughts in the comments section.
