The Worst Month Of The Year

Can I say the word “sucks” on here? If I can’t, I’m sorry.

February sucks. It is by far the worst of the twelve months. What happens in February? There’s the Super Bowl, that’s a good time, and then pitchers and catchers report to spring training, but that just makes you want March and April to come even faster.

Let me get this out of the way. February is Black History Month, and the team here at RumBunter is very supportive of that. We very much realize and appreciate all that the African American race has done for our country, and I’m not trying to belittle that. Also, my sister’s birthday is in February, so she’ll be mad at me if she reads this. Erin, I love you, but I hate the month you were born in.

The weather is cold, there’s usually snow on the ground, the days are still short and everybody just seems more sad than usual. The NFL finishes up in February, and the NBA and NHL seasons aren’t quite close enough to the end where you can really get excited to watch games (unless you’re a big fan of the leagues, which I am not).

Valentines Day is in February, which is almost always bad for the male species. If you have a significant other, you have to buy them things and you have to be on your best behavior all the time, which is never what you want. If you don’t have a significant other and want one, this time of year is even tougher for you than normal.

I don’t know who was responsible for drawing up the calendar that we use today, but even those geniuses knew that February was going to be a terrible month. That’s indefinitely why they made it 2.1875 days shorter than the average month. Unfortunately we’re in a leap year right now, so we’ll have to endure the treachery of February for an extra 24 hours.

This is a baseball blog, and this post really has nothing to do with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but everybody needs a little diversity in their lives sometimes, right? Here’s to a fast and pleasurable 29 days of February.
