My how quick the tide is turning on this one, and given what was happening in my other country of Italy two weeks ago, I am not surprised and will leave the US politics out of it.
What's happening in the last 48 hours or so in other sports is on the CFL's plate but at least they have seven weeks or so before camps and 3 months before preseason games.
Last night I remember seeing an NBA game on the West Coast and thinking how much longer. Today there was a soccer match in Liverpool that had that normal feeling full of singing fans, and I knew to appreciate it though my Reds lost but at least it was to a better side.
Other matches in Europe are being played routinely now with no fans now. In Italy they suspended league play altogether as one player on Juventus tested positive.
The NCAA tournament will have no fans but for some family, which ought ruin that spectacle for those who enjoy it.
Lebron James stated no fans and he won't play.
It's a brave new world already. We find out more tonight at 9 Eastern US Time.
