For some reason, the schedule guy (or sadist), in his infinitie (not so) wisdom gave the New York Red Bulls a bye week after just one match into the 2015 season. Well, we here at Once a Metro have you covered with ideas to keep you occupied while waiting for the home opener on March 22nd.

MLS: Just because MLS is off doesn't mean that you can't watch other games.

European/South American FootballYes, there's soccer outside of the US. No, it doesn't make me a snob for liking it. Yes, I can watch more than one league. Leave me alone.

Regional Sports that aren't soccer: Yes, those are a thing. Here's a quick rundown of what's available.

Big East Tournament (College Basketball) wraps up at Madison Square Garden (MSG) this weekend.

MSG is also playing host to the PASL Finals on Saturday morning.

New York Yankees & New York Mets are in preseason mode.

The New York Knicks has a game or two coming up (probably), as well as the Brooklyn Nets.

The New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils are in action.

Nicholas Sparks Marathon: This was Lester's suggestion. I don't know what he was thinking.

Early Spring Cleaning: Now that (most of) the snow is gone, you can get an early start on Spring cleaning.

Plant a Tree: it's pleasing to the eye and helpful to the environment.

Go Outside: There's a whole world out there to enjoy. Go take a walk. Go to the park & feed some ducks. Take OaM with you, our site works on phones also!
