I'm certainly sticking away from watching the NCAA hoops tournament at CCSP or any other sports bar

NCAA tourney is playing without fans.   There aren't going to be fans in North America games for a while, I guess.

I wonder if MLB will just delay the start a month and see what's up then.

Shorten the season? Can't be playing the WS at Thanksgiving. Plus, you'll just be avoiding the first round of SARS-CoV-2 for the likely second round at flu season time in the Fall.

Delay the start of the season and just delete a bunch of games against the Tigers and Pirates.

Because it’s more specific to the Nats and their schedule and people who haven’t subscribed to uncensored can’t see that thread. Or at least that’s my guess.

You know, this season would be the perfect chance for them to try out that new format. Shorten the season to 135-140 games and have a couple extra play in games.

I'd vote for this.  That's the length of the A+ and AA seasons, which are long enough.

Uncensored which has the virus thread in it is open to all. It’s the political forum that one has to ask the chief to be admitted.

Are you really taking the stance that this is all political in nature?

Open your eyes because there is a ton of politics in this. Everything is political. Duh.

I didn’t realize we had to request access to uncensored and then request access to the politics forum.

I literally posted a note to the mods to move it if they felt it belonged someplace else!

I think a move to the Red Loft is in the works.

I'm sorry, but whether Nats games get played at Nats Park, including the 3/24 exhibition, is Nats news, so this topic is staying.

I saw the piece that Seattle and Oakland are planning to move their first home games to away locations

With NBA cancelled, I'm sure the NHL will follow shortly.   There's not going to be any sports for a while.
