Susan,

Another use of the expression comes from American slang department: "Silly Season" is unofficially used in the professional stock car racing (NASCAR) context. In that sport, it refers to the last couple of months of the season (Fall) wherein teams scramble to line up drivers, crew chiefs and team members for the following season.

It is an informal version of football's "Transfer Window".

Thanks, John. I didn't know that, and there's no mention of it in the dictionary.
