Confusing seasonsPosted Monday, August 6, 2007, at 7:20 AM
Today's the first day of school in Bedford County. You hear of "going back to school in the fall" but this is August 6.
Since summer officially runs from June 21-Sept. 21 or thereabouts, we're going back exactly in mid-summer.
Football's a "fall" sport, yet it's already in the beginning stages.
And youth baseball, once thought of as a "summer" sport, is over for many in Bedford County before the end of spring.
Hockey, usually a winter sport, will run well into spring in Middle Tennessee if the Predators can ever get their playoff act together -- and if they stay in Nashville.
And the Christmas shopping season will be upon us by October.
Seasons. Seems like they've changed far beyond their traditional boundaries.
