Dear Sports

We learn a lot from sports, life lessons, team work, sacrifice, but now it’s time for sports to learn from us.

With COVID-19 running rampant like an opposing running back who you couldn’t stop in the opening drive, we had to adjust our behavior. We as a civilization got coached up, came up with a scheme and a game plan, and then we had to adapt and deviate somewhat from said game plan. We did what any great team does, WE MADE ADJUSTMENTS. We did it early in the game, and we did it well.

“If you’re well-prepared, you know what you’re doing, and you have an idea what the opponents can do – what their strengths and weaknesses are – once you get into the game, those adjustments will be – I won’t say easy, but relatively easier and more manageable.” Bill Belichick

Countless people made sacrifices, made concessions, made it work and we learned along the way how to make it all work. Sports are about to do the same. Limited resources, limited travel, limited revenue, but still able to, at the end of the day, win the battle, win the game. We as plain citizens blazed the wooded path, laid the conduit and now want the selfish reward of a few hours distraction. Honestly, it’s not much of an ask.

So now sports, least the majors, NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL are coming back online. (Thank goodness, my Fan-Duel account can’t take much more “dart parlays”)

And with that promise to the public is going to be some serious adjustments and ultimately some concession from both sports and from US. Hard questions with possibly answers we don’t want to hear.
