After all of the buildup, Super Bowl XLV is finally in the history books. But the fact that America's new favorite pastime is now in hiatus doesn't mean the world of sports will stop spinning. In fact, a number of high-profile sporting events will take place in the next few months: Major League Baseball Spring Training starts on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, with the season set to open on March 31. That coincides with the NCAA basketball tournament affectionately known as "March Madness," which starts March 15-16. The National Hockey League's regular season comes to an end on April 10, paving the way for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The National Basketball Association ends its regular season on April 12, with the playoffs running into June. And the PGA's Masters Tournament runs from April 7 to April 10. Indeed, the Super Bowl is really just the kick off to the 2011 championship season. So what better time could there be to talk about sports stocks?
