The Sports Impact of COVID-19

Recommended Posts

I really don't know. All I want to know now is whether the coronavirus had any effect on the Titans giving Ryan Tannehill that contract

No. 

 

 

On another note, I usually go out on Saturday nights and do karaoke with a group of close friends. Half of them had the “Oh come on, it’s no big deal!” mindset for last night, while the other half of us were more in the “I think we can skip a week for the good of society” camp. I was in the second group. 

 

I also found out this morning that the upcoming softball league I play in with that same group of friends has been cancelled. That’s a huge bummer, but I get it.

I wished more people "get it". Is it really that difficult to hold off on these unnecessary gatherings for AT LEAST one week, never mind a month? How about years? There are people who come from areas where shortages are the norm. if you really wanted to gather, don't go to a restaurant and maybe visit someone's home or something?

I'm certainly no doctor, but from what I'm hearing, it seems like if everyone took a "skip week for the good of society" - even just one - that would go a long way towards slowing the spread.  They're asking all the bars in the surrounding counties to close, and they might mandate it, so I was thinking that maybe last night I could go out with some friends while I still could... then realized how irresponsible that would be right now and how insensitive it is to the people that have been personally impacted.  I have to think that if everyone could get on board with just a couple of 'skip weeks', we'll be well on our way to containing this thing.

Some CHL teams have started sending players home, with the boiler plate "monitoring the situation" statement included. So I think it would be safe to assume they are more than likely going to officially cancel the season at some point.

This will give us a bit of a distraction and provide us with something sports related to talk about:

Does Red Robin have good food?  Or has it been overhyped?

 

What weirdos are hyping Red Robin beyond saying, "it's okay?" Granted I haven't been to one since I was in high school, so at least 13 years ago (oh Jesus!), but I remember it being fine. There are zero restaurants I would gather with a group in right now, but if I had to pick one, Red Robin would never even begin to enter consideration. Even if we set parameters to only include mediocre chain restaurants like Chili's (my favorite garbage chain restaurant).

 

I didn't even want to go out to get groceries the other day. Though I was mostly just annoyed that everybody around here suddenly developed a taste for sourdough bread, an item I previously had to be careful to check the expiration date on because of how rarely inventory turned over. So I guess I'm a white bread guy now.

The Qatar World Cup would be in September, a month after if the Tokyo Olympics moves to August 2022.

I think I purposely forgot this one was in Qatar.

Red Robin is pretty good, I enjoy it. It's ok to like some chain restaurant's.

No way in hell I am eating in one or any restaurant until this goes away, and even then a month or so afterwards.

A 100 Game MLB season is what I think we are going to get.

They were never going to start before May 1st with this initial decision.  I would doubt they want to push back the World Series any later.  Imagine playing the WS around Thanksgiving in places like Minneapolis, New York, Boston, etc.
