Is anyone excited ? I am usually a huge NHL fan, but I can't get pumped up. I just have a feeling they will start and not be able to finish due to Covid-19.

Which sports have confirmed they are returning this year? The only sport I follow is MLB and they have made no such confirmation yet.

Heh, you're right! I can't believe that fell completely under my radar.

Nope. Not with the political message I saw they are conveying at the opening of the games. I'm done with Baseball until they fire the entire organization running it and replace them with folks who care only about giving us a good game.

Yep. Screw them all.

Yes, unfortunately politics is front and centre in all the major sports.
It's the "silence is violence" bullsh*t.
It is a huge turn off. Sports should be a distraction from the chaos.

MLS has already played several games.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

And if they they're like "Oh crap, we screwed up" and reverse they're "stand" I know they're hypocrites. Sorry but I am done regardless of what they try to do. Pepsi too. I don't do BoA and will try to avoid FedEx.

Yes, sadly, discussion of sports these days will have a harder time avoiding politics. Let's not get any deeper into that in Community Hall. Start a thread in PWEC, if you want to delve into that. Thanks.

Sadly politics seems to leak into every topic these days.
My intent was to see who, or if, anyone was excited about the return of sports.
Or if they feel like myself, that it is a futile effort, and the seasons will end prematurely.

Quite honestly the seasons are going to be cut short. The infection rate shows no signs of abating any time soon.

It's a house of cards, and it's windy.
