It may be cold today and will get colder tonight but signs that spring weather is not too far away will be as close as your television set this weekend. The annual Daytona 500 kicks off NASCAR’s 2020 season Sunday afternoon at 2:30 in Florida with the telecast on the Fox Network. Interest in NASCAR may not be what it was several years ago, but just the fact that a new season in the sport is getting under way helps I think to take some of the sting off our chilly February temperatures. Meanwhile, major league baseball teams will provide more proof that improvement in the weather is ahead holding their first pre-season work outs this weekend. If a winter nap is on your agenda Sunday, I might suggest the NBA all star game to be played in Chicago Sunday afternoon will provide more assistance than any sedative you can get anywhere. It promises to live up to it’s reputation as being a real yawner. That’s the way I see it.
