I am not interested in attempts to slap together some kind of season for "major league" sports this year.  I think that they should all take a year off and figure out how to do it right next season. I have no interest in asterisked championships. 

Universal DH in the NL?  Travesty...

Thoughts?

Seems like all of a sudden there are a crapload of MLB players testing positive. Honestly, I’d be surprised if they didn’t scrap the season sometime in the next few days. 

There are alot of bad ideas in the MLB proposal.  They should forget this season and just move on.  Catchers should not be the only ones with masks.

If they can’t keep PGA tour players from getting the virus how are they going to keep other athletes form getting it?  Season is over for everything.  And likely no football in the fall which is terrible, but probably needs to happen.  

I don't follow sports but I just can't believe they think they can pull this off. I believe the US just had the highest one day total of new cases.

F1 still looks like its on track for a shortened calendar.  I think running all the major cycling events in the fall as planned will either not happen or be a poor decision.

No spectators though right?  Have tickets for the American Grand Prix in October. Really hoping they cancel because I don’t want to go but want my $ back.

I'm guessing you mean the race here in Austin at COTA.  If so, let me know if I can help in any way as far as information, plans, etc.  We've gone each year but for reasons unrelated to COVID we had to back out for 2020. 

The CEO at COTA made a comment yesterday in the local media saying he's "hopeful" there will be a race, but not confident, and less confident there will be fans. 

I don't recall if you got my email at the big TWC offline in Toronto we attended when we came up for the Indy race years ago, so just in case its my handle at gmail.

I have been advised by F1, that our team & officials, are to be advised re race.   Will not know until late July for sure.  Was told that TX needs to get virus down,  to have race, if so, would be no fans on grounds

Thanks VB. That’s the race. It’s for a friend’s 40th birthday.  We are hoping to get a refund or at least to roll tix over to the following year. Not too keen on going this year, but still want to go.  Eventually.

Looks like Toronto and Edmonton will be the hub cities for the NHL's return. 

Awesome - the Blackhawks can upset the Oilers in their barn!
