    At times like this, I need to step back and remind myself that people like you Ryan, medical personnel, police, firemen, grocery personnel are on the front lines in this war. Admiration and respect for all who are making a difference for the rest of us. God bless!!!
  5. There are definitely some feel good stories coming out of the current situation. Thats a commendable move by Kraft
  6. Where is Dean going to college? I haven't see anything in the paper about what schools are recruiting him.
  7. Wasn't sure where to put this, but thought ghe "randomness" of this thread was a good place. Never been a Patriots fan, but this is very admirable, and their owner is to be commended. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/a-million-n95-masks-are-coming-from-china-on-the-patriots-plane/ar-BB1242KH?li=BBnb7Kz

    You should try being the one who has to write the stories for the news every single day.... As much as y’all are tired of hearing it — it’s literally what we HAVE to see at work. We don’t escape it. Ever. We are all burnt out and we are just in the infancy of this virus.

    I miss not having the NCAAT, and MLB. In my uneducated, hillbilly opinion....IF....we can come up with a viable, widely available treatment (not vaccine, which is probably a year away) that works really well for most cases, we could regain some sense of normalcy. Depending on when that might happen, we might see an abbreviated MLB season, possibly an 8 team NBA playoff, and perhaps even a normal football season, although I would expect that these games would likely be played without spectators.
  11. The latest estimate of the duration of this is up to 18 months
  12. Chances of seeing fall sports or winter sports this year?
  13. I would have to say yes. I would have liked to have seen how the NCAA and hs basketball tourneys in WV and VA would have played out this year, but if it means the difference in life and death of just one individual, I can do without. I sure hope this mess is cleared up by football season.
  14. I've always been such a sports fan,and I never would have in a million years thought I'd say this,but while this pandemic is rough,it's actually been in some ways a blessing to me. It's given me time to set aside worldly matters (other than work of course),and focus on my faith and my family. It's made me realize what matters most and really just how trivial sports are when you compare them. My relationships have strengthened,and I've enjoyed and absorbed the meaningful conversations that we should have been having all along.
  15. Absolutely, especially the early spring window of the NCAA tourney, MLB opening day, the Masters and the English Premiere League. Once those are over I don't watch hardly any sports over the summer. Right now I would welcome just about any sport to take my mind off the horrible stories related to the Coronavirus for a couple of hours.
  16. Miss? I wouldn't say I miss sports. I miss the distraction I guess of being able to kill a few hours and enjoy some time to block out the real world and immerse myself in enjoying watching a sport. I have, over the past few weeks, pondered the question about pro athletes, the outrageous salaries , their social influence on the youth, and where things might go moving forward in the future. I guess what this has shown is that sports and pro athletes aren't as essential to daily life as one may have thought 6 months or 3 years ago.
  17. Congratulations to all the locals who have made the Single A All State teams. I haven’t seen AA yet. IMO Bradley Dean from Gate City deserves at least a share of the Player Of The Year. Any guy that can carry a team to another state championship appearance and go for 32 against the state champs need at least a share. If Robertson can get a share of it with Ervin and Ervin only go as far as the final four then Dean needs to share it with whoever from John Marshall IMO. Anyone agree or disagree leave it in the comments below.

    For anyone interested in behind the scenes ramifications for professional sports leagues amidst the postponements and cancellations, check out the "No Laying Up" podcast interview with LPGA commissioner Mike Whan. Mr. Whan is hands down, the best commissioner in professional sports anywhere in the world. And it's not close! He goes into great detail about what event insurance covers, what the leagues will have to eat in losses and what that generally means for players, coaches, owners and fans. He goes into some detail about how leagues/events/concerts will be forced to change the way the operate going forward. It's very interesting to hear just how far-reaching these cancellations are. From beverage suppliers to concessions to small businesses surrounding stadiums, to city government lost revenue from parking. It's amazing how this is devastating our whole economy.
  19. Notice I said HS FB, not CFB lol. College football is my favorite sport to watch on a game by game basis, but nothing is quite like the NCAAT.
  20. I agree AEW is killing it. They're even killing nXt at this point.
  21. Yeah, I miss march madness, NASCAR, college lacrosse, and MLB. Been a big Orioles fan since I was old enough to be a fan, but they haven't been much for the last couple of years and may not be for a while as long as Angelos is the owner. Hoping football returns this fall. That should mean that maybe this virus is on it's downward spiral.
  22. WWE has been pretty much unwatchable, AEW on the other hand has been pretty good from what ive seen. The in ring action is MUCH better imo
  23. Its funny how peoples perspectives are different in terms of what they like, I would sacrifice the entire sport of basketball for eternity just to have next football season, and I enjoy basketball(HS and NCAA)
  24. I am not a big fan of the spring sports season at all. I have tried to watch high school baseball over the years and just get bored with it. I enjoy softball some but I am ok with not having it. Real NASCAR is only good to watch when they're at Daytona and Talladega and Martinsville. The iRacing races they have been doing the last couple weeks have been much more entertaining than the real thing. I do miss Indycar though and Moto GP, which was finally going to be back on American TV this year after several years away from it. I don't care what anyone says, Moto GP is by far the most exciting (and dangerous) motorsport there is.... I miss wrestling. Notably New Japan. But it appears they may be starting back up soon. At least my good buddy, Chase Owens is still being paid while New Japan is on sabbatical. WWE is still going, but Wrestlemania is going to suck hard this year being taped in advance. I'm one of the lucky ones, who always has a full DVR, so I always have plenty to watch. Even with everything being shut down, as of last night, my DVR is still at 48% full.
  25. Saving vacation cause would use up quite a bit during NCAAT. Heck yes i miss all the sports from high school to pro sports. Live with my 2 sons so we all not handling it well
  26. March Madness is awesome. I stopped watching NASCAR years ago. I wouldn't watch a baseball game if they were playing it in my front yard. I'm pretty busy with multiple jobs and don't get to watch much TV though, so it hasn't bothered me much. Football is a different story. I live for it. Don't know what I will do if that gets cancelled.
  27. Badly miss the NCAAT, and feel terribly for the athletes and schools who were robbed of their chances to compete. I also miss spring NCAA sports; the baseball NCAAT is a blast to watch and follow, and there are some zany upsets that come out of there, too. As for professional sports, I don’t really pay attention to the NBA/MLB until playoff time. Seasons are needlessly long.
