It’s the time of the year we all dread. Whether you live in Florida & can’t catch a break from the extreme heat (or in Tropical Storm Debby) or maybe you live elsewhere but feel like you might as well live in Florida with the extreme temperatures & lack of A/C, this time of the year seems to be the most unpleasant.
Then you throw in the fact that the NBA season is over, NCAA season hasn’t started and this is by far the slowest time for NFL fans, it’s basically a recipe for disaster!
Luckily the Olympics will be here soon, which should provide some comfort for sports fanatics until the NFL season resumes.
Here are the top stories in Jacksonville this week.
