Love is in the air.

It's that time of year again where men of the world are forced to purchase flowers, chocolates and dinners for their significant other out there.

Sure it could be considered a Hallmark holiday, but if you just try to show some "love" or give it some of your "heart," you may just have a good time.

With that said, sports and Valentine's Day can coexist.
