The off-season has barely begun, and I’m already slogging through it. At least there’s the NFL playoffs right now, which started with a bunch of blowouts but has steadily grown into an exciting contest. Oddly enough, I’ve been starting to get into Premier League soccer just a little bit.
Anyway, who are you rooting for right now?

And if you’re not really digging any of the teams in the field, what are you planning on doing this off-season to kill some time? Sound off in the comments below.
- GALLERY: Looking back at recent Super Bowl halftime shows.
- After the infamous Janet Jackson incident in Super Bowl XXXVIII, the NFL turned to older rock artists to fill its halftime show for a while. That changed in 2011, but the combo of Usher and the Black Eyed Peas failed to deliver thanks to some bad choreography. Photo by Christopher Polk/Getty Images
- To be honest, the 2012 performance by Madonna - with appearances by Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. - wasn’t too impressive either, even with Madonna donning some Viking gear at one point.
- Things started to turn around in 2013, with Beyonce and her old group (Destiny’s Child) singing their best hits and aided by some great lighting and pyrotechnics. Simple, straight-forward, but oh so good. Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

- In 2014, Bruno Mars stole the show, following the same general format as Beyonce before him.

- Finally, this past year, Bruno Mars and Beyonce came back for more with the help of Coldplay. Lady Gaga will take over the reins in 2017. Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images
