Midnight What? The Five Most Overhyped Events in Sports

Truth right here. I get very excited about Opening Day in the MLB but I never overanalyze anything after one day. I have better sense than that.

The Crossing Route

Greetings, readers.

It’s been a long while since you last read anything from me. With school and whatnot, I’ve been quite busy. But I’m back, and today we’ll discuss a very important issue: Five sporting events that the media should not get all worked up about. Here are the five most overhyped events in sports:
