The First Domino Topples

The Hall of Fame game in Canton, OH was just cancelled, to the surprise of no one. It is getting grimmer and grimmer regarding the 2020 season, as the country has pretty much screwed the pooch in regards to containing the virus. Of all the sports, baseball is the least onerous when it comes to spreading things, if you take away the licking and spitting and drooling in the dugouts. Korea is playing, minus fans, and it is going fine.

Basketball? That’s gonna be tougher. There’s a lot of contact, and no way to distance. I mean it won’t affect guys like James Harden and Russell Westbrook, who don’t play defense anyway, but I can’t really see how that is gonna work.

Then there’s football. A game where EVERYONE is in close contact with everyone else.From the players and coaches on the sidelines, to the offensive and defensive huddles, to the 14 guys on the line of scrimmage, to actual crashing and hitting and blood and sweat flying. They’ve had the longest time to wait for a solution, as this took off right when the Super Bo, uh, nevermind, but the point being, we haven’t even gotten over the first wave of this, let alone the predicted second wave once fall and winter hit.

I wish there was good news coming around this, but I’m not very optimistic at this point. Barring some kind of miracle around a vaccine.
