Other sports play everyday of the week because MLB has a 162 game schedule and the NBA has 82 games. I have no idea about hockey.
Friday = High School Football
Saturday = College Football
Sunday = NFL
Hockey is 82 also, then up to 28 playoff games for each team in the championship round in basketball....hockey also, I think.
