Blame Cannada

I know our decision makers are in a tough spot because of COVID.

Those in charge don’t want to make hasty decisions because they don’t have all the data. They don’t want to make the wrong decisions. They don’t want to make a decision that puts someone in danger.

If you can’t guarantee safety, then unfortunately you’re going to have to bite the bullet and say, ‘We may have to go without this sport for this season.’”

Those were the words of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said in June that the return of sporting events may be too dangerous.

I’ve always been a dog person.

For my eighth birthday, my parents bought me a Beagle puppy that turned out to be one of the greatest friends I’ve ever known. She was good natured, loved to play and had so much energy.

She was a great representative of her kind—an ambassador, if you will.

But they’re not all like her.

Making a call

We need a decision.

It’s time to make a plan for the fall.

I know it’s controversial. I know it won’t make everybody happy. But we have to have a decision.

I can’t recall sports

On February 29, North Carolina played what turned out to be one of the final live sporting events.

I say final because I’m not sure if we’ll ever see sports again. That’s how it feels, at least.

I was very jazzed up for this game. My beloved Tar Heels had to win or their chances at making the NCAA Tournament would be over.

Stick to sports

Athletes, coaches and even sports journalists (sometimes) are often told to “stick to sports.”

It’s usually related to political discussions. Sports fans who say this just want to watch a game and ignore things like that.
