For the United States:There are actually professional sports being played on every day of the year. There are two days in which there are no popularmen's professional sports being played, however (which many count as no professional sports being played), which are the day before and the day after the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. During those two days, the major male professional sports of basketball, football, hockey, and baseball are at rest. The other professional sports being played include tennis, soccer, and women's professional basketball.For Other Countries:Not every country is the same in regards to professional sports schedules. In Australia, for example, Christmas, Boxing Day, and Good Friday are three days when professional sports are not played. It depends on the country.
