    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.

    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

    I missed the NCAA Tournament but thats it. I dont watch baseball or NASCAR. My interest in any sport outside of NCAA and High School football has been dwindling for the past few years. The National Anthem issues with the NFL were the beginning of it, football was my escape from the real world and that was invaded by bs. I still watch the Cowboys when they're on but other than than I watched parts of maybe 3 NFL games last season and the Superbowl. I did watch a lot of college football and ive been fortunate enough to watch more high school football in the past 3-4 years than I ever have, nothing better than traveling around SWVA eating hotdogs and watching some high school football. I hope something we as a culture take away from this is that we refocus on whats important and find other interests. Ive been sketching, something I haven't done in years, and depending on how things go I may end up reading more.

    Spring 2020 'CV19' Impact/Changes

    I said last month that I think we will still be social distancing and have something similar to what we’re currently in as we head into 2021. Until they find a viable vaccine that can be mass produced — this isn’t going to get better. And I don’t think they will have one until this time next year at the earliest. Hot spots will continue to pop up. We’re staring down the very real position that hundreds of thousands of Americans don’t live through this.

    Yes. Badly. i miss my NASCAR races. I miss March Madness. I was supposed to be in Charlotte this coming weekend for a Hornets game. No Masters. No Indy 500. No Bristol. No NBA playoffs. No watching Richlands softball repeat. I’m not a big baseball guy, so that’s not much of a loss to me. But if this stretches into football season with no sports then I’m not sure what to do at that point.

    Great question. Who are the top 5 current coaches in SWVA? I'd have to go with 1)Turner (Union), 2) Wells (Richlands), 3)Owens (Wise), 4)Robinson (Chilhowie) and 5) Palmer (Graham). I'm probably leaving off some good ones but out of those five I don't see any of them leaving to coach at Patrick Henry. Probably going to have find a good coordinator or younger coach with less experience if you're PH.

    I've only heard great things about Palmer. Appreciate the time you did have him part of the PH football program. Wish him and his family the very best going forward. Hopefully he teaches the next young men the same lessons in life and football that he did with others over his career.

    Looks like Palmer is doing the same thing Mance did, retiring with full retirement from Virginia, and taking another job. I haven't seen anyone blasting Mance for leaving, so no need to do it for Palmer. As for the PH job, looks like it will be a good opportunity for someone. Washington County pays well, and the talent is there to compete for a state title.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    On a lighter note, Xayvion Bradshaw got his first D1 offer from Kansas. With (hopefully) 2 more seasons to go, I'm sure he will be getting a lot more offers. He is very talented and I think about to explode on the high school scene in a big way. Also, Brody Meadows has numerous D1 offers and is ranked as a 4-star, top 100 recruit!!

    I seriously doubt anything will happen after that as far as spring sports. Football coaches will be chomping at the bit to get started. I bet they’re going crazy as it is but they’re all in the same boat so I guess that’s plus. Hopefully, our local boys are putting in time on their own to stay in shape.

    Governor of Virginia has issued a Stay at Home order until June 10th. So nothing will be happening before that.

    Yeah! Just heard this myself! As a PH fan, and parent, thought it was kinda crappy to be getting this news, through social media in the middle of a pandemic! More power to him, i just hate it for the younger kids, that bought into his "brotherhood" mentality. Brotherhood is thick or thin, I guess money won out on this bid! Good luck, Coach Palmer in greener pastures. Our boys are Rebels no matter what, and you better believe this will be just the ammunition they need, to be back on top!
