For the first time since July there’s no football note in our weekly Conversation Starters. While I miss football, there’s hardly time to dwell on it with the start of Spring Training this week.

You know what’s odd? Mention Spring Training here in the Northwest and you’re just as likely to talk about vacations as baseball.¬†Why? Because this is the time of year everyone wants to get out of the Northwest and a mention of the Mariners heading to Arizona for Spring Training gives fans a chance to talk about their plans for escaping the cold, wet winter months.

It’s a good reminder that sports talk doesn’t always have to be numbers and stats. Sports talk opens the door to the conversations your colleagues and clients really want to have.

Try it this week using baseball or any of these topics:
