As our sports generation is now faced with a quagmire whose only modern precedent is the Spanish Flu pandemic, local sports fans have come to a menacing and gut-wrenching reality, that there are no sports to fall back on in these times of Coronavirus pandemic.
Stern warnings are being issued that this may be the toughest week for Americans yet. Pearl Harbor and 9/11 have been mentioned as equally impactful precedents.
But in the thought of progression and doing thing we have to do so we don’t drive ourselves or others nuts, here is The Mizzou Report’s ‘What Now’ list.
Don’t Inundate Me With Your Fake Sports
I’ve already had it with this frenzy of fake sports in some sort of weird effort to satisfy the desire for competition. Any type of e-sports substitution, theoretical/simulated games or fantasy sports without real competition is an annoying farce.
Countdowns are a semi-tolerable form of recent recollection on sport, but most are outdated.
College Football WILL Happen
Insiders are already saying those in the know are committed to carrying out the 2020 college football season. Even if it means moving the start of the season as far back as November, the season will happen in its entirety.
This is great news for all of the SEC, terrible news for kansas. Interesting to see however, if February becomes the new November this season in the FBS.
Andrew Kaufman is Killing It
So reporting sports during this COVID-19 quarantine has been a challenge, but ABC17 Sports Director Andrew Kaufman is putting a little sizzle into the pot, primarily by using the energy his offspring is burning behind the wheel of a stunt bike.
Aerial jumps, sick slo-mo replays and raw attitude is what you’ll get when you watch Kaufman’s home sports report. You might also get schooled on the difference between ͏bath towels and plush white blankets from Target.
Anti-Christ is Coming
So with all this COVID-19 stuff comes the conspiracy perspective, which is also what is religious perspective.
This past December, a public ceremony was held for the alter that will be used in the Third Temple that will be built in Jerusalem. Groups are declaring that construction of the temple is about the begin.
But there’s one major problem.
The Dome of the Rock, al-Aqsa mosque is there, one of the most holy places in Islam. In order to build this Third Temple, there’s going to have to be some major deconstruction activities going on.
Not only that but they apparently have their guy to put in place, who would be—you guessed it—the anti-Christ. Nothing is known until it happens, but certainly worth keeping an eye on.
So What Now?
Survive and become stronger, mentally and physically. Try to learn a language…I’m going for ten right now, no kidding.
It’s never too later to start learning something amazing, especially now. Several language groups agree you can “fluently” learn a language in less than two months, so why not give it an honest attempt?
