With football season on hold for the rest of the summer, we’re all getting a little bored. Monday nights have no meaning. Thursday nights are terrible.

If you’re finding yourself in the same boat, here are 10 ways to fill the void until September 7th.

    1. Start a pickup games of your own. Can be problematic if you are in cities that are hot as hell, or if you have a lack of friends.
    2. Mock fantasy football leagues. This could take hours when you draft up every possible outcome for every game, player, and possible injuries and errors.
    3. Start a stamp collection. Tedious and attention needing, time will pass in no time.

    1. Take up a belly dance class. A great way to get in shape and learn more about a different culture.

    1. Marathon TV shows. With 8 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 4 seasons of Arrested Development, 7 seasons of Parks and Recreation, 7 seasons of The League, and 20 seasons of South Park, you should be able to have just enough to tide you over.
    2. Get a part time job at a sports bar. At least you will be able to listen to ESPN.
    3. Watch every movie about football you can find on your usual Monday nights.

  1. Start watching baseball. With 162 games in a regular season, 30 teams, there’s a whole new world waiting for you.
  2. Start learning to crocheting or knitting.
  3. Train like a pro, so you don’t just wait to watch on tv.
