Tennis (especially singles) is arguably the most socially distanced of sports...yet Wimbledon has been cancelled and now this tournament (a solid second-tier event, especially back in the days when Agassi was regularly on the card)...how in the world does NFL football think it can go on (a full 16-fixture season at that) amid the covid?

Wimbledon has pandemic insurance - most events didn’t bother with that rider

first major cycling race seems to have come off ok.  Teams are much smaller, so when a couple of teams had one rider or staffer test positive, they pulled 2 and 3 riders, respectively, for coming into contact with the positives, and the pulled riders so far are testing negative.

Bye bye fall college sports:

It’s the right decision. Even in the Power Five the majority of players are not going on to pro careers. I wonder what the NFL will do?

He should be OK with this. This ensures that he won't lose to Ohio St. again.
